Northern California is a treat for the senses. You’ll see groundbreaking art, avant-garde fashion, and grand architecture. You’ll hear dance-inducing music and thought-provoking poetry readings. And you’ll taste gourmet food, perfectly paired with the best wine in North America. Eating and drinking are just a small part of most days, but here in California’s wine country, you can build an entire vacation around flavor experiences. From a luxury room by the Point Reyes National Seashore to a Napa Valley getaway, you’ll never run out of wine to savor at Mosaic Hotel Group’s boutique hotels in California. This Napa Valley wineries list features 10 of the best Napa and Sonoma, CA, vineyards and wineries.

Sonoma, CA, Vineyards and Napa Valley Wineries List

There are countless charming vineyards and wineries in Northern California, but no two are the same. Some wineries source their grapes from local vineyards, while others grow their own vines on-site. We’ve selected a mix of wineries and vineyards based on scenery, location, and reputation. These 10 stand out among the crowd.

 

1.  Castello Di Amorosa, one of the most scenic Napa vineyards, is literally a castle full of wine. While the castle may look ancient, its construction began in 1994. It has a moat, drawbridge, and stables to transport visitors back in time.

2. If you’re looking for a rustic, farmhouse winery with cozy vibes, Copain Wines is for you. Wooden lounge chairs line the hilltop overlooking the vineyard, so you can sit back, relax, and say “ahh” while sipping your vino.

3. Domaine Carneros is regal and stately, with perfectly pruned shrubs and gorgeously fluid lines. An ornate staircase leads the way from the grounds to the raised deck and building. Grab a glass before descending into their garden paradise.

 

4. Scribe Winery is a masterpiece of Southwestern architecture. Terracotta accents perfectly complement white stucco walls, and it’s surrounded by desert plants and rows of grapevines. Plus, it’s only a 10-minute drive from El Dorado Hotel, making it one of the most unique and convenient Sonoma wineries.

5. As the oldest continually operating winery in California, Beringer Vineyards is a must-stop spot along the Napa Valley wine trail. It’s a gorgeous display of Victorian architecture, and the wine is to-die-for.


6.
Ivy-covered stone, fairy lights, and a brick courtyard give Buena Vista Winery a country cottage feel. But don’t be fooled; this locale offers the same level of glitz and glamour as all the others on our Napa Valley wineries list.

7. Ram’s Gate Winery puts a rustic twist on modern minimalism. Dark geometric lines and patterns accentuate the high levels of natural light in their barn-inspired tasting room. It’s a bit south of the other Sonoma wineries, so it’s an excellent place to stop if you’re heading toward the coast for the day.

 

8. Just one block away from the historic El Dorado Hotel is Three Sticks Wines. It’s a beautiful and welcoming place to grab refreshments during a walk through the Sonoma Square. Their property, The Adobe, was built during California’s Mexican Period and is one of the oldest residences in Sonoma.

 

9. Inglenook is another historic estate with bubbling fountains, verdant ivy, and immaculate grounds overlooking the neat rows that are typical of Napa vineyards. Our North Block Hotel (pictured) is less than 10 minutes away, so you can spend the night in the famous Napa Valley countryside.


10.
Truchard Vineyards is like a scene from The Hobbit. Lush vegetation saturates the entire property, and a round, stone doorway cuts into the grassy hills. It sits between Sonoma and Napa, so it’s a convenient destination regardless of where you choose to stay.
