Day 1 // Arrival
Welcome to Sonoma, California! This historic northern California city is the center of the world-famous winemaking region. After you arrive to your home for the next three nights — The Lodge at Sonoma Renaissance Resort and Spa — we’ll meet for a free wine tasting in the early evening before heading out to a welcome dinner at a popular vegan-friendly restaurant.
Meals included: dinner that includes shared appetizer, main course, one glass of wine
Day 2 // Sunrise Hot Air Balloon Ride, Farm Sanctuary and Tour of Sonoma Vegan Wineries
We’ve got a packed day today! We’ll enjoy a breathtaking sunrise hot air balloon experience over Sonoma and then hop in our private transportation and go on a tour of the Sonoma region with La Belle Vie Tours.
Along the way, we’ll stop at a farm sanctuary and spend some time with the rescued animals and then go to two vegan wineries where we will taste the wine and enjoy a vegan lunch.
We return in the late afternoon to The Lodge and the evening is yours to indulge and take advantage of the amenities at the hotel, visit some of the local wineries in Sonoma Plaza or explore beyond.
Meals and tastings included: hotel breakfast, two vegan wine tastings, lunch
Day 3 // Local Wineries and Pairings
Today we’re staying close to home and exploring the vegan wineries at Sonoma Plaza, a colonial-era square (and the largest in California) famous for its art galleries.
We visit two wineries at Sonoma Plaza, and enjoy two tastings (one with vegan food pairings).
You’ll have time after the tastings to grab lunch on your own and explore the area (there are 30+ wine tastings rooms, nearly 30 restaurants, shops and more) before we meet again to enjoy the weekly farmer’s market and then head to our final dinner together.
Meals and tastings included: hotel breakfast, one tasting, one tasting with food pairing, dinner that includes shared appetizer, main course and one glass of wine
