During my stay in California, I took some time to explore the Northern California Bay Area with friends. Needless to say, I'm in love with the whole state, but these are a few new gems I really enjoyed and recommend.

The Slanted Door We just told the waiter to bring us a little bit of everything! Might have been one of the best decisions we made on this trip.
Nopa Cool vibes, Great food, amazing service. I'd recommend asking the staff about their favorites.

/We got happy at these Wineries
Iron Horse We started our mornings outside with a little bubbly and the perfect view.
Red Car This place was awesome, reminded me of El Cosmico in a way. I want my house to look like this!
Inman Family Wines The women including the owner were so warm and welcoming. I loved learning that everything was built with recycled materials.
Harvest Moon The owner and people who work here are super fun and made our visit memorable.
Hook & Ladder And we fell down the rabbit hole
Martin Ray Continued falling. It was a beautiful blur.
/We used this Service
Valet of the Moon wine Tours Grace researched and found Colleen and Sharon, who take groups on wine tours. The thing about them that stood out was that they drive your car or your rental. This makes wine tours way more fun, you just sit back and have a blast without the worry of trying to find the next winery or getting pulled over after drinking wine all day. I highly recommend calling them!
