It wouldn't be a wine country Valentine's day without some world-renound wine tasting. K Concierge will create a completely personalized experience for your afternoon of exploring the vineyards, either by bike or private luxury vehicle. Start the day being picked up by an extremely qualified ambassador or wine connoisseur to host your tour.
Once K Concierge has finalized your form of transportation, they will also set up all of your winery appointments for you. Their expertise of the area aides in finding the most unique and exquisite winery experiences in the valley.
A first stop could be the Tuscan style winery Petroni Vineyards. Enjoy stunning views of Brunello grapes as they turn bright yellow or sneak into the wine cave for an indoor taste. From the moment you arrive at Petroni Vineyards, you know that this winery is special.
Next, enjoy the beauty that is Hamel Family Wines for a food & wine pairing for two. This experience features seasonal dishes with their delicious wines.
Finally, a stop into the small, family owned winery, La Rochelle. They are home of the Ultimate Pinot Noir Experience. Enjoy small-lot, single vineyard Pinot Noir & Chardonnay.
After a long day of wine tasting, you'll definitely need a fabulous dinner. Though you really can't go wrong in wine country, K Concierge recommends the newly renovated Salt and Stone which Sonoma-style American fare plus local craft beers & wine in rustic, family-friendly surroundings. They offer a large oyster selection (Valentine’s aphrodisiac?) and have a great happy hour!
Perhaps some of the most exclusive features through K Concierge are the accommodations they have access to. Properties like this beautiful private estate overlooking the vineyards are just a few of the options they offer. This villa is the perfect spot for a romantic Valentine's day overnight for two.
Before leaving beautiful wine country, indulge in a couple’s massage at the Willow Stream Spa at the Fairmont Sonoma Mission Inn, rated among Travel + Leisure’s top 25 spas. Historically revered by Native Americans for its healing power, the elegant Spanish mission–style inn boasts an enviable location atop an ancient thermal mineral spring, flowing from 1,100 feet below the surface. The tranquility and beauty of this environment is echoed throughout the 40,000-square-foot spa, which offers endless opportunities to find your energy or relax. Whether it’s relaxing by the inviting fireplace, soaking in their mineral baths and Watsu® pool, or indulging in one of their signature treatments.
For one final stop, enjoy a lovely breakfast at local favorite Sunflower Caffé. They are located on the historic Sonoma Plaza and their food is simple, locally sourced and delicious. Share a table for two and sip a mocha or mimosa on their outdoor patio or enjoy a waffle in their cozy restaurant.
