Sonoma Wine Country Holidays - Farmhouse Style

November 25, 2016

The winter holidays are my favorite time of year. Well, among my favorites. I love it when the wine country vineyards are filled with mustard flowers in March and we know that spring is around the corner. Summer get-togethers on my verandah are pretty amazing, as the sun sets over our Russian River Valley vineyards and the Sonoma Wine Country grape harvest is pretty incredible too. The changing seasons are one of the thrills of living in Sonoma County. But, the holidays are what's next and they are all I can think about right now.

Back to all the packages I’ve come up with, that may or may not be driving my team crazy… This winter we are offering a new roster of special winter programs. Some are about a great price on i.e. a quick trip and dinner, and some bring Russian River's most iconic winemakers into a series that will allow you to come, feast and, the next day, spend time with them on their own turf. Not something that many properties could pull together (thanks team!). And whether you are celebrating the holidays all out or just want to chill and get away from the hub-bub take a look at our Holidays Your Way Special Package. Whether you need a little spa getaway or just hang out by the fire pit with our s'mores makings it can truly be a holiday your way. And for the gourmand...We have a dinner series that is going to challenge Chef Steve Litke and Food and Beverage Director Matt Brown, to create a celebration of the Old World every Friday in December, and a Celebration of the New World every Saturday. Challenging, but sure to be delicious – this one has all of us excited – expect to see several Farmhouse team members at these dinners. We are encouraging a weekend stay around those too. And, if a tiny wedding or an elopement is something you are considering, consider how magical a Christmas wedding could be! You just show up ready to be dazzled and we'll take care of the rest. We are promising festive surprises at every turn.
