Sonoma/Napa Specific Questions

Hi, 3 women traveling to wine country/SF, Leaving early am Wed 8/1 from SF, driving up coast to Healdsburg. We have 2 nights booked at Dry Creek Inn Healdsburg, heading back to SF on Friday afternoon for the weekend. Looking for feedback/ideas and any help from you knowledgeable fodorites. Here are my questions:
driving up coast should we stop at Muir woods or Anderson woods?
We would like to get 2-3 wineries in on Wed afternoon, preferably smaller ones, Great wine and views
any suggestions?
Planning on drive tour of upper Napa valley on Thurs, wineries picnic lunch etc. Also we are thinking we might just stay one night in Healdsburg and a night near/in Napa Again looking for ideas and specific stops.
Friday half day around wine country, drive back to SF late afternoon and pm tour of Alcatraz. Does this seem reasonable? Again any help greatly appreciated, Thanks marymacnp
ps posted this elsewhere, but don't think i was specific enough with my heading

You might post this on the California Topic Board. Messages disappear quickly if they are just on the US board.

I'm not sure what you mean about driving up the coast to Healdsburg. Healdsburg is not on the coast and driving up Hwy 1 would be a trip that you would need the whole day to do it right.

Also, do you mean Armstrong redwoods? Now these are located between the coast and Healdsburg and are nice diversion from the Russian River area.

I would suggest staying in the same place for two nights. I find that more relaxing than changing hotels each night. Your plan of seeing the upper Napa Valley is a good one. You can take Hwy 128 over from Healdsburg and return by the Petrified Forest Road over to Hwy 101.
