The birthplace of the California wine industry, there is no place where wine and food pair more beautifully than Sonoma. Over four days and three nights, go beyond merely eating and drinking with unique, hands-on tastings at the best of Sonoma’s boutique wineries as well as culinary delights including a Michelin star farm-to-table dinner.
After arriving, check into Sonoma’s most luxurious property, the Farmhouse Inn. One of the most highly rated hotels in the world, its stylish and sublime barn buildings feature deluxe rooms with large windows overlooking the woods and gardens. This award-winning inn provides unparalleled personalized service, led by owners whose connection to Sonoma dates back five generations.
Start your experience with a wine tasting class before enjoying a four-course Michelin star dinner at the Inn, where each selection is expertly paired with wine by the sommeliers. Retire to your room — complete with a fully-stocked curated wine fridge — for another glass on your private outdoor deck next to the double-sided fireplace before a night of restful sleep on a king-size feather bed.
Over the next two days, tour iconic wineries. Known for more than just its grapes, stand beneath Sonoma’s towering redwoods in Armstrong Woods Park on a private hike with a park docent. Private winery lunches and dinners will expand your palette as you explore pairings of artisanal wine with food ranging from charcuterie and cheeses to popcorn and pizza.
Spend your final day engaging in a cooking class and devouring your culinary creation for lunch. When it’s wheels up back to Denver, board your private plane fully wined and dined.
