1. Napa valley

Autumn leaves time: mid-October to early November

The most beautiful place: winery

As one of the most authentic colors in California, autumn red is a beautiful scenery that you cannot miss when passing by. When the winery began to harvest grapes, the green leaves quietly changed from the background of flowers to the protagonist of the beautiful scenery. When strolling to the winery, stop and taste the precious wine. The mellow red wine is in the mouth, the red leaves dancing in the wind, and the light redness on the cheeks.

In Napa, you can visit Sterling vineyards and take a tram to watch the red leaves of the winery. Take a look at the golden vines, have a meal in French Laundry, or visit nearby well-known wineries such as Smith-Madrone and Silverado. If conditions permit, stay at the winery for one night at night and have a glass of red wine with a beautiful food. A full weekend is planned. At the winery, you can enjoy the red leaves. Of course, the tree type is not as good as the nearby Yosemite or East Sierra. However, the accommodation is comfortable and there are Michelin-star restaurants for you to enjoy.
