Publisher's Summary

Picture rolling hills, with long rows of vineyards trailing off into the distance. Imagine the early morning sun filtering through a low veil of mist. Think of historic stone buildings perched on hillsides overlooking the valley below, and you can form a picture of Wine Country. No matter where you're visiting from, Wine Country has the ability to transport you, for however long you're staying, to a bucolic world, where exceptional wine flows freely and world-class cuisine is the expected norm. It's almost impossible not to relax and unwind here. Even if you don't come for the wine and the food, Wine Country has something to offer almost every visitor. If you're an outdoor-type, you'll find beautiful state parks for hiking, biking, and nature watching, or you can take to the water and paddle your way down scenic rivers. If history is more your thing, you'll know that the region played an important role in the history of California, and you'll find several historic sites to visit. And if you just want to relax and indulge in some personal spoiling, Wine Country has spas, luxury hotels, limousine tours, and boutique shopping. More than a dozen counties throughout California produce wine, but the North Coast region is by far the best-known. Four counties make up this region: Napa, Sonoma, Mendocino, and Lake. Of these, Napa - or more accurately, the Napa Valley - is the most famous. Consequently, it's the busiest and most commercialized of the regions, but it shouldn't be missed. It's a relatively compact region, so it's easy to plan a tasting route. You'll find excellent restaurants and a broad range of accommodations, from luxury resorts to homey B&Bs.

North Coast winemaking began in Sonoma County, and this region has managed to maintain much of its country living feel. Aside from wine and food, Sonoma also offers plenty of activities for visitors.
