SUMMER DAYS IN SONOMA- WINE COUNTRY MUSIC VENUES

  
  
  
Lagu-mini Amphitheater-ette

This is the time of year that we all get to play tourist in the wine country.  Summertime in Sonoma just has so much going on.  Art shows, farmer's markets and garden tours, festivals and celebrations of all things Sonoma, and then all the normal, all the time winery stuff going on (Passport to Pinot, anyone?).  Just can't cover it all in one blog post.  So this week's feature- the music venues going on all summer.

Right now one of the biggest (longest) events is the 10-day Healdsburg Jazz Festival going on right now in Healdsburg- check out the schedule - it closes June 10th. 


If you work it right this weekend you can take in the Beerfest in Santa Rosa on Saturday, sneak in to a couple of the artists studios at the West Sonoma County's Art at the Source open studio tours and still fit in some of the Jazz events in Healdsburg.  The Summer Concert Series in the Healdsburg plaza started this last Tuesday.  June 12th- Gator Beat and Zydeco-  listen up - mark it on your calendar!  Always manage to see them at least once sometime during the season.  Everybody dance!!



This acting like a tourist can be exhausting...I don't know how our guests at Farmhouse Inn do it. 

The Krush backyard free concerts started last week and this week features the Comatose Brothers (what a name for a band) .  It's that time of year when you just pull up a piece of grassy lawn and kick back- sometimes a lazy summer afternoon and sometimes under the stars. There is some kind of music event going on every single day of the week and a lot of them free. 

FARMHOUSE INN CONCIERGES IN SONOMA...SEXY CARS AND RAM'S GATE

  
  
  
Ramsgate Winery Sonoma

Those Farmhouse Inn concierges are at it again... 

They continually go out and experience all that Sonoma Wine Country has to offer so they can steer the Farmhouse Inn guests to the very best experiences available (remember Anna and her ziplining adventure at Sonoma Canopy Tours?) .  This last week Anna and Meghan went with our Silver Service Steve to Ramsgate Winery and not only checked out the winery but also the Audi Experience at Infineon Raceway.

FARMHOUSE INN "PEEP" SHOW AND A VERY RARE "CABBIT" SIGHTING

FOLLOW THE "YELLOW DUCK ROAD" TO EASTER FUN in the wine country...you'll have to read to the end to see a picture we managed to capture of the very rare "Cabbit" sighted here at Farmhouse Inn this morning!  Astonishing!  Was very Eggciting!

Romantic Wine Country - Amore at Farmhouse Inn

  
  
  
Valentine's Day Farmhouse Inn

We think we are pretty romantic here at the Farmhouse Inn...
seems to be a common descriptive term from our guests, too.  And of course, Valentine's Day is right around the corner so we have been talking to a lot of guests cooking up their very special romantic getaways to the wine country. 

The guys seem to be more on top of things this year- getting flowers ordered, special champagne on ice, romantic spa treatments (Have you seen the Playful Passion treatment?)  We've got a few proposals in the works and even one of our romantic elopements scheduled for Valentine's Day- shhh... can't tell you who yet. Seriously, we think we have the romance for the whole month of February pretty well covered. Catherine decorated guest services for the month with special treats for the guests to help themselves to.

Sonoma County and Fall's arrival...

  
  
  
Harvest Fair Santa Rosa

Summer is winding down with a crash!  Misty, foggy, almost drizzling morning- had to use my windshield wipers.  Have you ever wondered what we do in the fall here in the wine country?  This weekend is a perfect example of a couple of the wonderful things we have to keep us busy.

Sonoma County...silly, wacky, and wonderful!

  
  
  
Burma Shave Sign

Sonoma County does it again...Have you noticed the red signs strung beside the road following the Russian River from Santa Rosa out towards Guerneville? You can head down the road both directions from the Farmhouse Inn in either direction to run into them.  Remember the old Burma Shave signs...well maybe not if you are a youngun' but I remember hearing about them in a marketing class in college.  You could equate them to life sized "twitter" posts with a sense of humor. The signs were up along our earliest roads from the '20s until 1963 and were an early form of our modern billboards advertising a shaving cream.  Here's an example in case you have no idea what I am talking about:

Sonoma Wine Country...Making Music

The Sonoma Wine Country summer music scene certainly seems to include something for everybody.  I know I've mentioned before there seems to be something going on just about every night...Just to give you a few ideas for the next few weeks.

The Farmhouse Inn Scene This Week.. Wine Country Tiny Weddings

  
  
  
Elopement to Farmhouse Swenson

This last week has been a bit crazy here at the Farmhouse Inn (you might say- situation normal!). We had scheduled a photo shoot for our very first video for this week.  Which sounds crazy- who wants to do something like that in our busy season?  But we wanted to include the Bartolomei family ranch and gardens (where Chef Stevo gets some of the produce for the restaurant) and they don't look like too much until later in the season when everything is growing like mad! 

Farmhouse Celebrations...wine country style!

  
  
  
Elopement at Farmhouse

This week has been focused on celebrations here at Farmhouse Inn...we are all focused on the national celebration of Independence Day but our guests are always celebrating something.  This week we had 3 honeymoon couples in the house...you ought to hear the concierges waxing poetic about each and every one.  

Sonoma County celebrates...Independence Day Getaway!
