Join us on a culinary journey to Sonoma, in the heart of California’s Wine Country, with handcrafted wines and delectable meals sourced from small local farms. Nestled in a lush valley with trellised vineyards climbing the surrounding hills, and bound by a central plaza and a historic Spanish mission, Sonoma is arguably one of the most beautiful towns in California.
Step far off the tourist path for an intimate cooking and wine adventure with Sonoma’s finest local chefs and vintners, as you learn to cook with locally-sourced seasonal ingredients. Our Sonoma culinary tour includes cooking classes taught by expert chefs, dinners at the best restaurants in town, wine tasting at one of the oldest family wineries in California, and a hike with spectacular views of the valley. During your free time you’ll relax at Sonoma’s premier boutique inn and spa.
Thanks to an abundance of organic and fresh local produce, our chefs are able create scrumptious menus that change seasonally to reflect the best of what Sonoma has to offer. On our Sonoma culinary tour you’ll learn how to create delicious meals that showcase the best of California cuisine. Our chefs will not only show you how to prepare a meal that compliments the season, but will also give you tips on how to get creative with the recipe at home. Once the cooking classes are over, we’ll all sit down and enjoy the fruits of our labor, along with a delicious glass of local wine.
