Imagine a drive down a two-lane road through golden hills and river valleys on a retro Vespa, followed by private wine tastings and games of boccie ball. No, we’re not in Tuscany, but rather Napa and Sonoma—and exploring the region’s back roads European-style. Wine Country Vespa tours (two-day tours from $1,000 per person, all-inclusive) take you on scooters to the area’s top artisanal producers, vineyards (don’t worry; drinking is closely monitored), and restaurants, where you’ll enjoy alfresco dinners prepared by renowned chefs, including Charlie Palmer from Dry Creek Kitchen. Come nighttime, unwind at intimate hotels such as Sonoma’s Hotel Healdsburg and MacArthur Place. Start your engines.
