Wine Country Trip Planning

I’m heading to Northern California next week for a long weekend in wine country with my boyfriend. We’ve been once before in the spring, but I’m excited to be there during the harvest season! I'm looking forward to discovering new things this time around and sharing travel tips and recommendations with you all. Here's what we have planned so far:

We both absolutely love oysters and visiting an oyster farm would be a dream. Hog Island Oyster Co is located in Marshall, CA on Tomales Bay, and it would be a stop along the drive from San Francisco to Wine Country. One of my favorite parts of visiting Northern California is this drive up the state. It's so incredibly beautiful. On our last trip we went a little off our route to explore Point Reyes. The rolling hills, ocean vistas and lush greenery make this part of the country so gorgeous. Visiting an oyster farm would be the perfect little detour for this trip. Hog Island offers a retail kiosk, picnic area, restaurant, and farm tours.

Another stop along the drive up from San Francisco is Muir Woods. Muir Woods is an old-growth redwood forest. It was declared a national monument by Teddy Roosevelt in 1908. It's been on my bucket list for a while to visit the woods and walk among the huge trees. 

Of course, winery tours and wine sampling are must-dos. There are so many great wineries in this area and selecting which ones to visit is a bit daunting. Some great options: sampling sparking wines at Domaine Chandon and taking in the history of the ivy-covered Inglenook Winery.
