Ukiah is a small town of 15,000, two hours north of San Francisco. With 300 sunny days a year, and a Mediterranean-like climate, this area is known for delicious wines and a freethinking mindset. Wineries like Fife, Paducci, Frey, and Bonterra call the valley home and are innovating the organic production of wine. The hot springs that bubble up in the area and the peaceful Redwood groves draw a crowd of people who want to escape the stress of city life.
This is why Ukiah was named California’s “Best Small Town” and the sixth-best small town in the United States. This haven for free spirits, outdoor enthusiasts, and wine lovers has a rich character that invites you in and begs you to stay.
