My husband and I are doing our first trip to San Francisco/Wine Country this November. I have reserved roughly three days/nights in our itinerary (thinking like wed-sat). We are young and newly married and don't know much about the area at all. I don't really have a preference between Napa, Sonoma, etc, but would like to stay somewhere unique in a good location for first time visitors. Price is flexible, but ideally under $300 a night. Our goal is to get a nice first look at the area so when we make future trips we have a better idea of where we want to go/what we like to do. We are interested in both vineyard tastings and enjoying tasting rooms in whichever town/city we stay.
Also looking for vineyard/ tour/driver suggestions - I love red wine of almost any variety, pinor nior is a current favorite but would love to try new grapes.
Any ideas/suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
