If you’re heading to the North Bay or just looking to enjoy a weekend excursion, wine lovers will find a lot to like about Novato. With award winning hotels and a range of dining options, Novato offers access to all the beauty and excitement at a more affordable price, that doesn't compromise on quality.
A scenic Marin city at the gateway to wine country, Novato has a small town ambience and insider wine destinations. When coming from across the Bay, Novato's your local gateway to all that wine country offers.
