NEW Visual Storytelling

This itinerary is infinitely customizable and will be tailored to suit your personal interests and schedule!

America’s original wine country welcomes you.  Healdsburg, one of the best small towns in America, is a pure charmer with a fine array of dining and eclectic shops.  In this region of bounty, you’ll want a first-class cooking experience.  Savor the goodness.  Follow it up with an intimate winery tour and tasting.  Relax.

Now, head out to the wild California coast. 

Redwood forests are a sanctuary of unparalleled grace.  Consider ziplining through the trees. Pure joy. Follow the Russian River west until it meets the Pacific, and enjoy an adventure with a naturalist. After two days of ocean air, Sonoma’s historic plaza calls.  Taste wine on a mountain top, take in the views, ride horseback through a vineyard estate, and top it off with an exquisite cheese-making class. Life is beautiful.

Let us customize this for you!
