In 1975, there were only 25 Napa valley wineries; today there are well over 400 wineries in Napa and Sonoma Counties. The region not only boasts incredible wines, but it also has hiking, bicycling, hot air ballooning, historical sites, and extensive culinary choices. Numerous notable chefs and restauranteurs are present in the Wine Country, including Thomas Keller, John Ash, and Sondra Bernstein. Besides the obvious winery attractions, the Wine Country is known for the Sonoma County coastline along the Pacific Ocean, the Russian River valley, redwoods, hot spring baths, petrified forests and other natural areas.
