Gate 7 and Air New Zealand recently hosted a group of NSW Flight Centre agents to showcase the Northern California Triangle of San Francisco, Sonoma Wine Country and Yosemite Mariposa County.

The trip started out with a great 24 hours in San Francisco exploring the city with City Sightseeing San Francisco, a dinner cruise on the bay with Hornblower Cruises and a biking across the iconic Golden Gate bridge to Sausalito on a guided tour with Blazing Saddles.

Next the group drove just 45 minutes north of the SF to the heart of California wine country – Sonoma County – where they stayed at the gorgeous Fairmont Sonoma Mission Inn and Spa, ate at the Michelin rated Sante, went ziplining through the redwood forest and wine tasting at Kendal Jackson and Buena Vista Winery.
