Just don't do what we did -- we toured the Dry Creek area near Healdsburg on bikes. Wine tasting and hilly terrain do not mix. (Great Zinfandels, though.)
The narrow West Side Rd, drinking drivers and bikes aren't a good mix. [emoticon]

Many years ago we used to visit Napa Valley frequently. Nice wines, wasn't crowded and was affordable. Not any more. So many are up to $50+ to taste. Couple of our favorites are Sequoia Grove and Plumpjack.

Instead, try Sonoma area wineries. Some are expensive but plenty are $25 or less to taste.

East of San Francisco is Livermore with quite a few good wineries.

I agree with many who love Paso Robles wineries. If anyone needs a list of recommendations I have been to the majority of wineries in Paso. Many excellent ones and few to avoid.

Further south we also love the Buellton/Solvang wineries.

As of 9/19/21, there are large wildfires at the trees. It probably will be shut down for the fall. Sorry.

Are you referring to the Sequoia NF fire? That's not North of SF.

The OP mentioned visiting Sequoia NP in the first post before heading to SF.

I haven't been there in 20 years, lol. But i do remember at the end we went to see the old faithfull Geyser, one of 3 in the world with that designation. It was small but fun to go do, like saying you saw the worlds biggest ball of string. There were fainting goats there also. For wineries, i remember Chandone, and freemark abby? Not sure on spelling or even if they are still there.

Domain Chandon is in Yountville and Freemark Abbey is just north of St. Helena. There's also the Petrified Forest outside of Calistoga.

If you do the Calistoga tours, you can stay at the local fairgrounds. Pretty close to the most recent considerations given by others. We're fond of Frank Family wines just outside Calistoga
