Harvest/Crush season during late summer/early fall is one of the best and most picturesque times to visit Napa Valley and Sonoma Wine Country. If you’re visiting the San Francisco Bay Area and have a little time to spare, consider taking a Guided Napa and Sonoma Wine Country Tour from San Francisco – it’s the perfect time of year.
If you’re visiting San Francisco from out-of-town, plan a quickie one-day getaway to Napa Wine Country. We love playing tourist for the day and driving up to Napa Valley (located about an hour north of SF). It’s one of our favorite getaways, especially now during the Harvest Season or “Crush” (when the grapes are picked) – late Summer into Fall (August-October). We’ve put together a few tips for a Quickie One-Day Napa Getaway, including some of our favorite restaurants and wineries.
