Wine is plentiful and the golf is full-bodied making this enclave north of San Francisco where life meets style a personification of what it’s like to be California dreamin’. Authentic aromas seep from the pores of oak trees and grapevines as you wind your way on backcountry roads through sleepy hollows surrounded by toast-coloured hills. Versatility is a virtue when discovering the region. The wine country is known for two distinct valleys, namely Napa and Sonoma, which are connected on the north and south ends to easily explore hundreds of vineyards that have been serving up high-yield production since the mid 1800’s. With the perfect wine pairing, you will be sure to enjoy some of the best food anywhere in America as chefs continue to flock here year-after-year to hone their craft. While the varietals on your palate might be new world the course design is most definitely old world, with a classic collection of parkland layouts meandering through oak-lined fairways.
