Napa Valley & Sonoma Travel Guide

Napa Valley&Sonomais one of my favorite travel locations to date! We went last year as part of aCalifornia road trip.Before the trip we asked a ton of people whose opinions and tastes we trust what all we should do on our trip. Here were our favorite spots and the ones that people recommended to us! If you have something to add leave it in the comments so people can get as many suggestions as possible. It really is so much easier planning trips with friends!

WHERE TO STAY

We stayed at the Fairmont Sonoma & it was dreamy! The grounds are beautiful and it had an incredible common area / bar situation, pool and spa. We only stayed in Sonoma for two nights but I could have spent a week here! A few other great resorts that I researched before we decided on the Fairmont are below!

Auberge Du Soleil
Fairmont Sonoma Misison Inn & Spa
Farmhouse Inn
Kenwood Inn and Spa
The Carneros Inn

WHERE TO EAT

Our two absolute favorites were The Girl and The Fig & Gotts. If you want a nice meal out one night you HAVE to go toThe Girl and The Fig & if you want a great lunch you HAVE to go toGotts. If you want super duper fancy, break the bank then The French Laundry is where it’s at. Also make sure you order food when possible at the wineries because it’s delicious and makes for great photos. 🙂

THE BEST WINERIES

Our absolute favorite wasDomaine Carnerosbecause of the selection of sparkling wine, the apps and the view. We also really lovedDomaine Chandonbecause the grounds are beautiful and there are plenty of spots to lounge with a killer view. Definitely get a driver if you are going to do wine tasting! We used Cinnamon from A Limo Excursion and Wine Tours and she was fabulous!
