| Greening in Sonoma & Napa |
Sometimes you have to get away, even if for a day. For us this is one of those times—so we’re delighted to feel the rejuvenation mojo workin’ even as we drive toward Sonoma, in Northern California. The skies are a vast blue interrupted only by distant, solitary caravans of white cotton. Cooling breezes ease the warming sun. The vines we admire in their sloping rows pulsate a young, vibrant green. Squinting hard, we can make out their infant grapes tinier than pickled capers. Turn up the car radio, it’s Mumford & Sons and the banjo is twangin’! Our smiles spread, our heads bob, and this day has hardly begun. And the best, we now feel certain, is yet to come: We are invited to spend this perfect late spring day in Green Wine Country, with a stay at the eco-friendly Lodge at Sonoma and its award-winning Raindance Spa. Plus a behind-the-scenes tour and tasting at one of the greenest wineries in Napa, Domaine Carneros.
Bring it on!
