We are receiving a special gift of a 'getaway' trip to the wine country sometime after March 1 (but of course I want to start planning right away. We had our choices of places to go ie. Whistler, and other NW places, and we want to go to the wine country, plus maybe San Francisco). If you had to choose, where would you stay, where would you dine? We're not sure whether to concentrate in Napa Valley or Sonoma or another valley, or try to make a combination. This is a retirement gift, and we are from Seattle.
ps..if we fly in, does it make more sense to fly into Oakland rather than San Francisco, and thus (hopefully) avoid fog related delays, cancellations, etc?
