OUR CULINARY JOURNEY

Sonoma is so much greater than the grape. This Northern California valley is quite simply some of the most beautiful places in America. This is a country where you spend a morning strolling in sunny hills that might as well be in Tuscany. But just over the next crest, you’ll find yourself in a quiet redwood grove…or walking the Pacific headlands where the surf is thunderous and views are thrilling. 
From Bodega Bay (where Hitchcock filmed “The Birds”) to 19th century Calistoga and the lively streets of Yountville. You’ll explore historic family owned and operated winery, chat with a cheese maker extraordinaire, and cook with a celebrated chef. And yes, yes, yes – of course you’ll taste a parade of wonderful wines at leading vineyards. You’ll have ample time to explore the centers of local life. Why wouldn’t you want to  while away a week here, strolling a botanical garden or stretching out a dinner to watch the hills turn gold at sunset with your fellow wine lovers?!
