Explore Sonoma And The Carneros Valley


El Molino Central

Not your standard taqueria, El Molino Central serves truly artisanal Mexican food that changes seasonally. Any day that starts with a dish of El Molino's chilaquiles is going to be a good one.

di Rosa Preserve

Head over to the Carneros Valley to see one of California's greatest collections of Funk Art—work by artists like Robert Arneson and Bruce Conner. The tours require booking ahead.

The Fremont Diner

Super cute, retro diner that serves amazing food. The fried chicken is incredible! On sunny days, sit outside at the picnic tables.

Scribe Winery

A gorgeous view over the Sonoma Valley and delicious wines served by the young, fun staff.

Jack London Historic Park

Hike off the food and wine with a visit to Jack London State Park. The park includes the house that he lived in as well as the ruins of his dream house, which burned down while he was still building it. Your hike could be as strenuous or casual as you like: going all the way up to the top of Sonoma Mountain is a steep 8 mile loop. But visiting London's cottage and walking up to the lake is an easy stroll.

Outstanding in the Field

It's worth planning your trip around one of the incredible Outstanding in the Field dinners—the location varies from winery to winery, usually outdoors. See the schedule on their website: outstandinginthefield.com.
