Below are several California wine country maps we created using Google My Maps. Wine country maps include Napa Valley, Sonoma Valley, Alexander Valley, Lodi, Paso Robles, and Sacramento. These maps help you explore various wines, tasting experiences, and tours in renowned cellars and vineyards.
Google My Maps is available to both consumer Gmail accounts and Google Workspace users.
Google My Maps allows for mass importing winery locations from a spreadsheet. My Maps also allows for manually adding each winery, including details about their wine production, vintners, and appellations.
When locations on a Google My Map are imported from a spreadsheet, there is no link to standard Google Maps available. However, when a winery is manually added, there is a link from the winery location to Google Maps.
This map was created from a spreadsheet downloaded from the Napa Wine Project website.
Any wineries without a physical address or a P.O. box have been excluded. A number of outliers outside of Napa Valley and its immediate vicinity have also been excluded. The map is color-coded by city/town.
Click on a wine glass to see detail about the winery, including a link to the winery’s website. You can also find out whether the winery has a cave and information about their tasting tours.
Because the wineries were imported into this My Map, no Google Maps links exist.
View the map in a separate tab for higher resolution and the relative distances from Oakland, San Francisco, and Sacramento airports.
Sonoma Valley, a.k.a. Valley of the Moon, is regarded as the birthplace of the California wine industry. It is the closest collection of wineries to San Francisco.
Sonoma Valley has five different growing regions or American Viticultural Areas (AVAs). They are Los Carneros, Sonoma Valley, Sonoma Mountain, Moon Mountain, and Bennett Valley.
If you click on a wine glass, a Google Maps panel will slide out. In the Google Maps panel, click the “View in Google Maps” link to read reviews, see pictures and get directions for your wine-tasting and cellar tours.
