I know some of this I have covered and others too before. But, I'm asking again so I have it clear in one new post.
We have until some time saturday in wine country.
Although my husband and I love wine, he doesn't want to spend 2.5 days just doing tastings and a tour or two.
Need some suggestions for an area to stay and something to do Wed. afternoon and part of Thursday.
Is there a town we can head to from San. Fran on wed. afternoon that is worth seeing and a nice dinner and then go to the Napa Valley for Thursday and Friday night, Thinking: Beazley House, La Belle Epoque, Napa River Inn, etc.?
Or, drive out to St. Helena area Wed. afternoon check in and do cheese, olive oil and Woodhouse Chocolates spend a night or two there and then do tours or tastings back toward the town of Napa. If we spend just one night out toward St. Helena then I would do a B & B in Napa. If we come back just for Friday night, I would probably do the Napa River Inn.
Would like some itinerary ideas for leaving San Fran. where to head to and what to do that isn't just days and days of wineries.
We also do want to get a picnic lunch in at a winery.
As always, I appreciate all the help I receive on these forums.
Wineries are must sees for us Sterling because we love the wines, Mondavi and Jarvis based on posts here. Would like to go to Coppola but think his new location might be too far out of the way.
Also considering del dotto, etc.
