It’s harvest season in Napa Valley – what better time of year to visit California’s beautiful wine country. The “crush” (when the grapes are picked) typically runs from late-August to October. As Bay Area locals, this is one of our our favorite times to play tourist for the day and drive up to Napa from San Francisco – it’s only about an hour north of the city, so it makes a great day trip.
With so many wineries and restaurants to choose from, it can be a bit overwhelming which ones to visit, especially if you only have one day to see everything. Here are a few of our recommendations for a fun day of wine-tasting, touring, and eating your way through Napa Valley 🙂
