Sonoma Wine Experiences
Begin at the south end of the region by visiting some of the wineries in the valley, north of the town of Sonoma. At Chateau Ste. Jean you have the option of mixing your own unique blend of Bordeaux varietals in a bottle to take home. B.R. Cohn is next for a taste of its wines, olive oil and vinegars.
Finish at Sebastiani Vineyards for a wine and cheese pairing. Stay at the Kenwood Inn or the Fairmont Sonoma Mission Inn.
Today’s focus will be the Alexander Valley, the largest wine region in Sonoma. Start at Seghesio Family Vineyards in Healdsburg for a taste of old vine zinfandel, then head to Lancaster Estate for a tasting tour of their Bordeaux blends.
Finish at eco-friendly Medlock Ames for a tour of the organic ranch, winery and gardens, followed by a tasting. Stay the night at Hotel Healdsburg or return to Sonoma.
You might enjoy a guided bicycle tour today, visiting three or four wineries and enjoying a picnic lunch. We can arrange for your purchases to be brought back to the hotel. Or venture into the fields to forage for mushrooms or greens, and then enjoy a hands-on cooking class and lunch. Or explore the town of Sonoma with its charming plaza and many shops.
The Carneros region spans across the foot of the mountains into both Sonoma and Napa. Visit Gloria Ferrer, where chardonnay and pinot noir are blended to create sparkling wine. Then enjoy a tasting of red blends in a cave at Gundlach-Bundschu, the oldest family-run winery in California.
