Sonoma, San Francisco and the coastal highway

I'm planning a family road trip with my wife and 3 adult kids in June. We begin in Palo Alto after my niece's wedding on Monday and leave from LAX the following Tuesday (8 nights). We've been to LA before so 1 or 2 days there is enough. Can I get some suggestions as to how to split up wine country/San Francisco/coastal highway into 6 or 7 nights?

I would give San Francisco at least three of those nights.

Here is a day trip from the city which goes up the coast and to a redwood state park, to the wine country. It has suggestions for expanding it to include a night or two. One extension of it takes you up the Sonoma Coast for awhile through a spectacular section which rivals Big Sur.

I would suggest looking into the wine countries of Paso Robles and the Santa Ynez Valley. Means you don't have to go any further north than SF.
