This breathtaking region stretches over 400 miles from the Bay Area to the Oregon Border. The southernmost part of the region has a climate that is ideal for grape growing; possibly the finest in the world around the Mendocino, Sonoma, and Napa counties. Continuing up the coast, travelers uncover a land of contrast and mystery; from majestic redwood forests and crashing, storm tossed surf; to sun drenched coastal valleys and sandy beaches. A drive up Highway 1 provides one of the most picturesque journeys in the state.
