A Day in Healdsburg

Healdsburg PlazaWhen we travel, we rely on recommendations of friends and family to send us to those out-of-the-way spots that make the trip more memorable. And when friends visit us, we love to send them to our favorite spots. Sarah Hafner wrote a blog about her favorite things to do in Healdsburg from the best place for a morning pastry to a must-see garden shop to her favorite Healdsburg restaurants.

A Day in Cloverdale

Alexander Valley CloverdalePatrons often ask what they should do when they visit Wine Country, so we like to share some of our favorite insider tips to the area - things that locals like to do. Cloverdale is my hometown - the northern most town in Sonoma County, located in the Alexander Valley wine appellation. With just over 8,800 residents, we have a bounty of activities - many restaurants, tasting rooms, fun shops, a very popular coffeehouse and nice stroll along the Russian River. Here is my itinerary for a day in Cloverdale.

Sonoma County's Sustainable Goals

Hafner Vineyard Alexander ValleyIn 2014, the Sonoma County Winegrowers set a goal of being the first county in the country to have 100% sustainably farmed vineyards. Since Day One at Hafner Vineyard, we have focused on minimizing our impact on the environment and farming our 100 acres with the intention of preserving the soil's health for future generations. We were excited that the Winegrowers had sparked this movement, so we joined them. Annually the Winegrowers publish a Sustainability Report detailing the county's progress. We are honored to be included... twice!

A Weekend in Bordeaux

A Day in Santa Rosa

Santa Rosa Farmers MarketSanta Rosa is the largest city in Sonoma County. For some, that may be a drawback, but for me it’s what I like about living here. I enjoy being close to the conveniences of a larger city. Restaurants, stores, movie theaters, a performing arts center, great county and city parks, and wineries. Of course all of Sonoma County has many things to do both indoors and out, but just in Santa Rosa there is much to keep one busy. Here's my day's itinerary for you...
