Wine Tasting Itinerary: Two Sides of Carneros: Napa & Sonoma

|
American Canyon is the southern-most city in Napa County and is a wonderful spot to stay when visiting Napa or Sonoma Wine Country. Stay at one of the three hotels that boast spacious rooms, top-notch service, meeting space and a luxurious spa.

Then, let your wine tasting experience begin! Get in your car and within a few minutes of driving along Highway 29 you'll start to see the beautiful vineyards of Napa Valley. A hop skip and a jump away is the Carneros Appellation, located at the crossroads of two major wine regions, Napa and Sonoma Valley. This wine appellation is is home  to Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Sparkling wine and where you will spend the day wine tasting in this itinerary!
