Plan Your Trip

Have a "Sense" of Adventure

"Driving up the coast with the sun sparkling off the water and cows munching contentedly around every curve, you can't help but thinking that Highway 1 north of San Francisco is America's most beautiful road. But then you turn inland, winding along the Russian River with redwoods towering above you, through charming little towns that time forgot." Ruth Reichl, Gourmet Magazine

Find your way to the charming town of Santa Rosa from the coast or the Redwood Highway. When you find our town, you'll find yourself in the middle of it all, connected to wherever your plans might take you. Santa Rosa.... the ideal launching pad for exploring the wine country and to begin your food and wine adventure. "Foodies," start their stay here.... where it all comes together.
