When to go
Go between August and October to join in with the harvest festivities, or summer for the balmiest weather. For a quieter break, opt for spring, when the hills are green and the wineries less crowded.
PlanesThe nearest airport is Charles M Schulz–Sonoma County, about an hour’s drive away. Fly there from US cities including Dallas, Los Angeles and Seattle. Sacramento and San Jose airports are both under two hours away by car, as is San Francisco’s international hub.
AutomobilesIt’s a 90-minute drive from San Francisco and around the same from Sacramento. A car will come in handy for exploring the valley’s wineries.
