Begin your journey in Sonoma, where you can stay in a fifth-generation, family-owned farmhouse bed and breakfast with an on-site, Michelin-starred restaurant. Enjoy a private tour of the Armstrong Redwoods, author Jack London’s home, and historic Sonoma Square. Whet your palate with private tastings at area wineries. One of our favorites is a winery dedicated to limited-release, Bordeaux-styled wines, where you can experience a tasting inside of the natural caves where their wine is aged.

You can even take in the beauty of autumn in Northern California, from above, with a morning hot air balloon flight over the Napa Valley.
