California Wine Regions Travel Agent Specialist

Whether you’re a consummate wine lover or a beginning wine enthusiast, I can direct you to some amazing vacations in California. Not only can you sample great wines, you can also enjoy luxury accommodations and some of the world’s most beautiful scenery. Contact me as your travel agent advisor. I will support you with your travel plans from the beginning to the end of your California wine regions holiday.   Looking to explore California's diverse wine regions on your next trip? There’s no shortage of memorable travel attractions to check out in this beautiful state. From the rolling hills of Napa Valley to the sun-soaked vineyards of Sonoma, there's a lot to love about California’s wine country.  So, it does not matter if you’re a seasoned oenophile or just getting started on your wine journey, there's a perfect place open for exploration. Let’s look at some of the regions you’ll want to add to your travel plans. Napa Valley: Although it's only 30 miles long and 5 miles wide, the Napa Valley is one of the most world-renowned wine regions on the planet. With over 400 wineries to choose from, Napa has something for everyone. Just north of San Francisco, Napa Valley also features local gourmet food - food that you can discover easily at the city of Napa’s Oxbow Public Market. You can also take the Napa Valley Wine train - a vintage locomotive with a restaurant.  You’ll also want to visit Yountville, which sits northwest of Napa - a town that is famous for its sparkling wines and high-end eateries. Founded in 1850, Napa County comprises an area of just under 790 square miles. Sonoma: Just north of Napa Valley, Sonoma is a bit more relaxed and laid-back than its southern neighbor.  The historic city of Sonoma features art galleries and the colonial built Sonoma Plaza. Nineteenth-century adobe architecture surrounds the square, including the Sonoma Barracks (used, at one time, by the Mexican military) and Mission San Francisco Solano. The plaza hosts a weekly farmer’s market at certain times of the year. Mendocino: Mendocino is one of California's lesser-known wine regions, but that doesn't mean it's any less special. This beautiful region is known for its cool climate wines, like Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. The California coastal community of Mendocino is known for cliffside trails and its shores in Headlands State Park. The park also features a local history museum and visitor’s center, both of which are located in the Ford House, built in the nineteenth century.  If you’re an art lover, you’ll also want to visit the galleries featured in the Mendocino Art Center. Other attractions of note are the area’s Russian Gulch State Park and the Point Cabrillo Light Station, built in 1909. So, if you’re seeking a breathtaking vacation destination with plenty of wine to enjoy, look no further. As a travel agent specialist for California wine regions, I can help you craft the ideal holiday. For example, if you're a fan of Cabernet Sauvignon, then Napa Valley is definitely the place for you. This world-famous wine region is home to some of the best Cabernets in the world. But Napa Valley represents more than just fine wine. Again, the region is also known for its stunning scenery, with rolling hills, valleys, and vineyards as far as the eye can see.  There are plenty of great restaurants and hotels in Napa Valley as well, so you'll never be short on things to do. The wine region of the Sonoma Valley is known for its Chardonnays and Pinot Noirs, but there are plenty of other great wines to be found here as well. In addition to the vineyards, the Sonoma Valley is also home to some of the best olives in the state. I would say that Mendocino County is a bit of a hidden gem when it comes to California wine regions. If you want to explore this area, you’ll be well-pleased with the wine selections and varieties. Much of the region’s fame is credited to the wines produced in the Anderson Valley.  The cooler-climate Chardonnay and Pinot Noir flourish in this area as do Alsatian white wines like Riesling, Pinot Gris, and Gewurztraminer. You’ll also find some outstanding sparkling wines in this popular wine area. Of course, one of the best things to do in California's wine regions is to visit the vineyards. Many of these vineyards offer tours and tastings, so you can learn about the wine-making process while sampling some of the area's award-winning wine selections. Because the wineries offer tours, tastings, and often have restaurants on-site, you can spend a day or two visiting one facility. In addition to the vineyards and wineries, California's wine regions offer plenty of other attractions. From museums and art galleries to hiking and biking trails, you’ll have plenty to do. Call me today about arranging a trip to one or more of California’s wine regions. I would love to serve as your go-to travel agent professional. Let me plan a trip for you that will satisfy your love of wine and fine cuisine.

Best Birthday Celebration Ever!
I was planning my husband's elaborate 50th birthday party in San Diego and was getting overwhelmed with all of the details. I felt I needed help managing all of the vendors so I reached out to Alisia via Travel Leaders, who was very warm and helpful right off the bat. Alisia was able to plan a beautiful celebration for my husband and our guests, complete with hotel accommodations, dinner reservations, and entertainment. We would not hesitate to use Alisia's planning skills again, thank you for creating a memorable and special experience for us. ~Lisa B.

Fabulous birthday bash!
Alisia helped me plan my 40th birthday party and baby shower in San Diego. She took care of everything for us! Alisia found the perfect hotel, secured the room block, arranged transportation for our out of town guests, reserved a yacht for 35 people and coordinated our baby shower lunch. She was prompt, professional and was very accommodating.
