Napa + Sonoma see + do

Napa is famous for its regal cabernet sauvignon and other heat-loving varietals like chardonnay and merlot. Sonoma Valley is a little cooler; here zinfandels and syrah thrive. The summertime fog in the Russian River Valley and Napa Valley's Carneros District nurtures pinot noirs and long–hang time chardonnays. Below you'll find a selection of our favorite wineries.

Nearly all Napa wineries charge for tastings—expect $5–$40 per person—while those in Sonoma tend to be free or to charge a nominal fee of $2–$10. Call ahead for appointments, and don't try to see more than three wineries per day: You're bound to burn out, and those little tastes add up.
