  • Latest Trend In Sonoma - Napa Wine Country

    March 24, 2017

    Wellness and wine country – the initial reaction to those two subjects together is a squishy face mixed with a look of disbelief (don’t pretend like you don’t know what we’re talking about). However, contrary to many beliefs, wine country was built for wellness. Red wine is good for you (in moderation...), there are many healthy (non-wine drinking) outdoor activities to enjoy, and a lot of the food in wine country is organic and grown at nearby farms. Wellness has always been a part of the wine country lifestyle - we just weren't talking about it. We reached out to our friends at Meadowood Napa Valley and begun talking about all the healthy things we do every day. Our brainstorming resulted in our new offering: Wellness in Wine Country.

  • Farmhouse Inn Winemaker Dinners not to be Missed

    March 17, 2017

    It’s 70 degrees out and sunny in wine country today - spring has officially arrived in Sonoma and Napa. After one of the heaviest rainy seasons we’ve had in a long time it is time to celebrate the return of the sun and longer days. Many have asked what the heavy rains will mean for this upcoming grape harvest season, and while it is too early to give exact predictions, you could get an opinion from an expert by attending one of our winemaker dinners with Russian River icon: Kistler. On April 7th the Kistler team joins us. Below are some highlights of the previous dinners with Williams Selyem, Kosta Browne, and Merry Edwards and what you can expect from our April 7th dinner. If you’re interested in booking with us, please email our team at or give them a call at 707.887.3300.

    March in wine country is special for many reasons – we start to see signs of spring, menus start to change with new products coming into season, the rains taper off, the days become warmer and longer, and its Women’s History Month. We encourage you to celebrate this month by gathering your favorite women together for a night out, a hike in your favorite Sonoma County park or you can really go for it and plan a wine country escape – if you go for it be prepared to indulge – you deserve it. Spend a few nights in wine country exploring the dining scene, new wineries, the outdoors and enjoy the peace and quiet that comes with spending time with your friends. And gentlemen, we haven’t forgotten about you. Coming soon – our blog about how to have a gents' weekend in wine country.
