California Wine Country
Welcome to Wine Country, CaliforniaNo trip to the Golden State is complete without a visit to Wine Country. This region of California is famous for the cultivation of vineyards, and, of course, wine. Discover why millions of visitors each year choose to vacation in the Golden State when you book a room in the best bed and breakfast in Wine Country, California.
Things to See & DoOf course, there are several award-winning, world class wineries that offer tastings you’ll want to take advantage of. If you’re staying in a Napa bed and breakfast, you’re in luck; Napa Valley is unquestionably celebrated for its wines and has over fifty vineyards to choose from. If you have trouble narrowing down which winery you’d like to visit, hop aboard the Napa Valley Wine Train. Or, explore the vineyards from above in a hot-air balloon! If you’d like to browse the shops of local vendors at a riverside location, check out Oxbow Public Market, which is a short stroll away from the Wine Train. If you’re staying at a bed and breakfast in Sonoma County, check out the one-of-a-kind Charles M. Schulz Museum.
Where to Eat & DrinkSince California’s Wine Country is renowned for its wines, you’ll want to carve out some time to stop by a few vineyards. There are hundreds to select from and each is unique, but no matter which one you visit, you can expect to see expansive rows of grapevines bathed in sunshine and delicious, flavorful wines ready to taste. Keep in mind that because Select Registry properties are located just outside of Wine Country, many offer choice, quality wines from all over the region. Be sure to pair your glass with fresh seafood; the oysters in California are considered to be sweeter and creamier than elsewhere in the country. There is also a range of authentic, international cuisines available thanks to California’s diverse population. Dishes from Mexican, Korean, and Chinese cultures are often recreated with an American influence, resulting in delicious fusions. One such example is cioppino, an Italian-American dish. Cioppino is usually made with Pacific-caught seafood like squid, mussels, Dungeness crab, and clams and features a base of tomato sauce and wine. Whether you are in the mood for fine dining or a more laid back atmosphere, Wine Country delivers in full and you will find no shortage of fabulous cuisine!
Best Time to VisitWine Country weather is pleasant year-round, which means there isn’t necessarily one best time to visit. California is temperate and bathed in sunshine for most of the year. The Napa, Sonoma, and Mendocino regions boast warm summers and very mild winters that typically do not drop below the mid fifties. Warm, dry days are what make the region ideal for cultivating wine, so your window to explore the sunny hillsides and breezy, lush valleys is a wide one.

Or, spend the evening in a tranquil bed and breakfast that’s nestled in a majestic, magical redwood forest. Enjoy delectable breakfasts that are designed with the utmost care.
