The words elegant, sophisticated and luxurious all spring to mind when one thinks about The Fairmont Sonoma Mission Inn & Spa. Not only does this property give guests the opportunity to indulge in the divine Willow Stream Spa, it puts them right in the middle of one of the most celebrated wine-growing regions in the world. Wine tastings take place in the lobby every afternoon, and true oenophiles will want to take advantage of the popular California Winemaker Suite Package. In partnership with six local wineries, the inn has crafted a stay that includes a wine-themed suite, private VIP wine tour, signature wine gifts and more. Along with the vintages served with locally inspired cuisine at house restaurant Santé, additional wine experiences include guest speakers and Sonoma labels at the Big 3 Wine Bar and an ongoing Winemaker Dinner Series.
