Sonoma Stories and Tips


My husband and I traveled with another couple to Sonoma for a week. We rented a two-bedroom cottage from Viansa winery, which was located between Gloria Ferrar and Cline. Every morning we woke up to beautiful sunrises over the golden vineyards and later saw a sunset over the mountains all around us. We would awake early every morning and head out to either wine-tasting, shopping, or touring the countryside and Route 1. They guys spent 1 day driving race cars at the Infinion Race track a few miles from our cottage while us girls shopped in Petaluma and Sonoma. One day we went into San Francisco for breakfast and then stopped in Sausilito for a quick tour. There is SO MUCH to do in the Sonoma area. They days went by so quickly. The weather is beautiful in the fall, getting up to the 70s during the day and down into the 40s or lower at night. Our cottage had a fireplace, so we would light a fire every night and enjoy a bottle of wine. The wineries are endless and so much fun. We would plan on going to seven or eight every day and only make it to four or five because we would have so much fun at each we had to go home and take a nap. The pace in Sonoma is so relaxed. One day we traveled to Healdsburg, which was also a quiet, relaxing town with lots to offer: shopping, wine-tasting, and such beautiful scenery. The drives along the coasts were breathtaking!! It was the most awesome trip EVER!!
