Food and Wine Weekend Getaway in Sonoma County
One of California's premier wine regions, Sonoma County is shining brighter than ever these days. In the past several years, a bumper crop of award-winning restaurants have popped up, further elevating Sonoma's reputation as a culinary epicenter and attracting the attention of in-the-know foodies from California and beyond. Of course, there's the world-class wine, too, with the addition of two new growing regions in 2012, for a total of 15 distinct viticultural areas.
The county is dotted with quaint towns, each with its own unique flavor, but for a wine-centric getaway with a day of exploration via two wheels, we recommend Healdsburg as a home base. After all, there's no better way to really experience the essence of wine country than riding through — and you'll be working off some of that wine along the way. Here, our recommendations to soak up the best that Sonoma has to offer. – By Blane Bachelor
