+1 SteveE I live in that area and they are both good but Sonoma is better. More back roads and quieter. And less expensive wine. Also the only connection Napa has with the Pacific Ocean is across the San Pablo Bay mud flats and San Francisco Bay. Sonoma County has many miles of shore with the coast highway along most of it. And hundreds of wineries. The Santa Rosa Cycling club site lists many, many routes in the area (including Napa, Mendocino, and Marin counties. Contact me if you get in the area. If you visit too many wineries all the buses have bike racks to get you back to your lodgings. And take the time to ride across the Golden Gate Bridge.
