Why Choose Our Destination?

Sommeliers know: when you let wine breathe or “open up,” you get a fuller experience and can taste all the intended notes. Life opens up in Sonoma County, California. Find a first-class meetings destination just 30 miles north of San Francisco at the heart of Northern California wine country. Inspire creativity and collaboration at spectacular venues with towering redwoods and rugged Pacific coastline as a backdrop. And when the meeting adjourns, acclaimed food and wine, relaxing spas, and championship golf courses keep teams energized and entertained. While Sonoma County is world-famous as a wine country, it also offers places for meetings along the Pacific Ocean coastline (more than 50 miles of beaches) and in secluded spots in the redwoods.
