Sunnyvale/San Jose California: Silicon Valley Cities near Wine Country
Located in Northern California, Sunnyvale is one of the major cities that make up the famous Silicon Valley. It’s home to high-tech companies, including Maxim Integrated and Yahoo!, as well as dozens of shops and restaurants that sprung up during the dot-com boom. Just east of here is San Jose, which lies less than 60 miles from San Francisco.
Sunnyvale is neighbored by Mountain View and Palo Alto, where tech giants such as Apple, Google, and Intel have their headquarters on what was once agricultural land. The new influx of money from the tech sector has attracted fine-dining restaurants, shops, and a thriving arts scene to the area.
Microchips haven’t completely taken over the former farmland, though. The jagged Santa Cruz Mountains and rolling valleys have rich soils for growing grapes. Silicon Valley wine country has more than 30 wineries that produce pinot noir, syrah, and zinfandel. There’s also a wide selection of golf courses that you can enjoy year-round thanks to the area’s Mediterranean-like weather.
