How/Where to spend a few days in CA wine country

Jump to last reply

Vague, I know, but I have to start somewhere.

We'll be traveling from Perth, Australia to the US in March, primarily to visit family in CO.

Because it's a lengthy trip, because we'll probably be flying into SFO and because we both love wine, it seems a good opportunity to visit CA wine country.

I've been to Napa once, years ago, but spouse has not. We're both relatively unfamiliar with CA wines (shocking, I know).

Looking for suggestions on where to stay (town and/ or specific accommodation), wineries not to miss, things to see and do, pretty drives, etc. Vague, yes, but I'm open to all suggestions at this point.

As far as wine goes, we both love a good Pinot Noir and a nice Syrah (known as Shiraz down this way) is always appreciated.
