Winery of the Week: Bricoleur Vineyards

Bricoleur Vineyards’ signature varietal is called “Flying by the Seat of Our Pants.” The Brut sparkling wine, a blend of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir with a clear nose of citrus blossom and bubbly effervescence, is aptly named given the Sonoma Valley family-owned winery opened its expansive tasting room in 2020, just in time for the pandemic.

Kenwood Inn & Spa

A luxury resort by all accounts, lauded by the likes of Conde Nast Traveler, Kenwood Inn & Spa is sprawled across two-and-a-half acres of lush gardens with views of nearby vineyards in all directions. Yet, it is small by hotel standards, featuring just 29 guestrooms and suites, each tucked away into its own enclave to make its guests feel like they are the only people on earth.

Sonoma County’s The Farmhouse Inn

Somehow, The Farmhouse Inn manages to be rustic and romantic, grand and intimate, luxe and laid-back all at the same time. Voted both the 2017 “Best Hotel in Northern California by Conde Nast Traveler and 2018 “Best Hotel in California” by Travel & Leisure – not to mention named to the Forbes Travel Guide Verified Luxury List, the Inn actually got its start thanks to hops (a k a the key ingredient in beer), neither grapes nor wine, as one might expect given it is in Sonoma County.
