We are traveling to San Francisco in early October and want to take a day trip to wine country. We are wine lovers but are not experts by any means. We would like to taste some good wine that is not astronomically expensive and enjoy a day in gorgeous wine country. We are looking for your thoughts on whether we should do Napa or Sonoma and why. Please include any favorite lunch spots...
Additionally, we would love any recommendations for vineyards we should visit. We are a group of 7 adults but we will have a 13 month with us, so the vineyards will have to be somewhat laid back or family friendly. But we can also keep her occupied with grandma outside if necessary. :)
Thank you in advance fellow chowhounders!
