Recent California Wine Country vacation rental reviews

This was the perfect house for our family of 6 to get away and spend quality time together. The main part of the house was large enough for my husband and I to cook, 2 of our kids to watch cartoons and our other 2 kids to play board games, but still all be together interacting. The ping pong table in the garage was a huge hit, as well as the hot tub! The house was very clean and the location couldn’t have been better; close to walking trails and also in a culdesac where our kids could ride their bikes easily. We will definitely be back!

Great home for 3 couples to share. Spectacular views.

Nestled in the serene beauty of Sea Ranch, this vacation rental (called Seas the Day) is all about those jaw-dropping ocean views that woke us up with a smile every morning. And when the stars came out, the hot tub was our go-to for a chill session after a day of exploring. It was super handy being close to both the ocean and hiking trails. Whether we were taking a leisurely stroll along the coastline or hitting the trails nearby, there was always something new to discover. Inside, the beds were comfy and the furnishings made us feel right at home. Oh, and the cherry on top? There's a car charger included, making it even easier for us to hit the road and explore. With everything so close by, from the waves to the trails, this rental had us feeling like we were living the dream in Sea Ranch.

Sonoma County

Peppered along the Russian River Valley, about an hour and a half north of San Francisco, you’ll find the homeland of organic and artisanally-crafted cuisine, a natural landscape that blends forest with valley and vineyard, and of course, a historic legacy of winemaking. Sonoma Wine Country tops the list as a must-stay destination, with over 100 wineries and vineyards to sample the area’s famous Pinot Noir, sightsee California missions, and savor restaurants’ farm-fresh meats and produce.

Napa Valley

If you’re up for spending a little bit more for indulgence on your romantic getaway to wine country, set your sights on Napa Valley. From renowned winery Beringer Vineyards in St. Helena to downtown Napa’s Michelin-starred restaurants, you’ll find spas, golf courses, and art galleries to enliven your time away, including family-friendly events like the annual Hot Air Balloon Festival. Bask in the rolling green hills and stunning sunsets of the area with homes in Santa Rosa and Guerneville.

Mendocino Valley

Add a coastal flair to your wine tour and try something new. Mendocino Valley, which includes the towns of Fort Bragg and Albion, blends the best of Northern California’s breezy coastline and redwood forests with the rich soil that fuels the local winemaking and microbrewery scene. Between afternoons of wine tasting, enjoy a savory crepe at Raven’s Restaurant, kayak through the sea caves, catch the sunset at Mendocino Headlands State Park, and bring back a bottle to enjoy at a vacation rental with a private balcony overlooking the valleys.

What cities are considered wine country in California?

In Sonoma County, the main cities include Santa Rosa, Healdsburg, Sonoma, Guerneville, and Windsor. In Napa County, you'll find Napa, Yountville, Rutherford, St. Helena, and Calistoga. Mendocino Valley is home to Hopland and Ukiah and Temecula Valley’s main city is its namesake, Temecula.

Is there a wine country in Southern California?

The hidden gem of California’s wine country lies at the state’s southern end in Temecula Valley. With nearly 50 unique wineries, Temecula has just as much wine-touring to offer as its northern competitors, plus year-round sunshine and access to popular Southern California beaches.

What is the best month to visit wine country in California?

For warm weather and picturesque views of the vineyard, visit wine country during the harvest season of late summer and early fall (from August to September). If you’re looking to skip crowds, plan your trip for when the crowds are less frequent and everything is in flower during spring (March to May) or the shoulder season (from December to February).
