Adventure from St Helena to Santa Rosa
As the crow flies it is a very short distance from Wine Country Inn in St Helena to Santa Rosa. The interesting part of this adventure is that there is a little known road that directly connects St Helena to Santa Rosa. Exit St Helena up Spring Mountain road and continue on St Helena road all the way to Santa Rosa. From the outskirts of Santa Rosa take Calistoga Rd into the east side of the city.
Along the way take time to explore the little roads that lead up to the great vineyards like Pride Mountain Vineyards or venture out across the hill top to Smith-Madrone Vineyards & Winery. As you descend into the Santa Rosa valley the canyon narrows down and winds through a deep redwood forest. As you enter into the east side of Santa Rosa you have the choice of turning right and going downtown or turning left on to highway 12 and visiting the Sonoma Valley vineyards.
