San Francisco | Napa Valley

As one of nine recognized Great Wine Capitals, San Francisco | Napa Valley has awarded its hospitality leaders the 2017 Best Of Wine Tourism regional designations in seven categories.

Fall is a time of color and beauty in the valley and it all starts when the last of the grapes come in and harvest comes to an end. The valley floor is covered with yellow and red foliage and the aroma of fermenting grapes seeping out of their tanks fills the air with the smell of blueberries and yeast. Besides the complete and utter beauty of Napa Valley, there are also a lot of fall happenings to check out.

Here is your fall to-do list:
