Without a doubt, Northern California is the most acclaimed wine-growing region in the country, its viticulture on par with the likes of France, Italy, Spain, and Australia. California’s Napa Valley, more specifically, is the pinnacle of American viticulture. This nearly 800-square-mile expanse in Northern California is home to literally hundreds (and hundreds) of vineyards, and Napa Valley is celebrated as one of the best wine-growing regions and destinations in the world.

It’s not just grapes that thrive in this region; Northern California’s soil, temperature, and climate create an ideal place for hops — and, by extension, craft breweries — to grow. But why choose between these two very different, often polarizing, libations? California is, after all, a place of sunshine and positivity. This brings us to Woodbridge Uncorked, a brewery *and* winery in Northern California that’s the perfect marriage of grapes and hops, featuring a tasting room and tap house boasting a robust array of craft brews and local wines, and most importantly, the “all are welcome” good vibes for which the Golden State is known.
