1 Week California Itinerary

My husband and I are in CA from Sept 5 - 13. I have a rough itinerary and I wanted some insight and suggestions on if this would work. (we will be renting a car)

We arrive to SFO on Sunday, Sept 5. We are heading to Sonoma where we have 2 nights reserved. We have a contact that is hooking us up with a few wine tours in Napa and Sonoma. (Restaurant suggestions, please!!)

On Tuesday morning, we are heading to San Francisco. We will be staying with family in Daly City. We will have Tuesday, Wed and Thurs in San Francisco. Is this enough time to see the sights? We want to see Alcatraz, the Golden Gate Bridge, the wharf, Chinatown, etc etc (typical touristy stuff)

My thought was that on Friday am, we take the Pacific Coast Highway to Monterey, with a stop at Henry Cowell State Park on the way. One night in Monterey (Hotel, B&B, AirBNB recommendations appreciated)

On Saturday, we are going to a college football game at Stanford. Depending on the time of the game, we'd head back to Daly City for the night before our flight on Sunday morning.

To Summarrize

2 days in Napa/Sonoma

3 days in San Francisco

1 Day and Night in Monterey

1 Day at Stanford (night in San Francisco)

What do you guys think? Is 3 days enough for San Francisco or do we need 4? Is there somewhere you'd suggest other than Monterey? We are open to suggestions, but we love food, wine, new things.
