AFTERNOON Walk to Topel Winery's tasting room for pours of biodynamic vintages, and make friends at the stunning copper-inlaid mahogany bar. Or drive 15 minutes to Arista, famous for producing some of the best pinot noirs in the Russian River Valley. Call ahead and request a tasting in the Japanese garden.
EVENING You're in for an out-of-this-world meal at the Farmhouse Inn & Restaurant—an 1872 farmhouse, barn, and cluster of cottages close to Healdsburg. Ingredients for dishes like spring vegetable–topped ricotta gnocchi come from the on-site garden and its farm just down the road. (P.S.: The hotel itself is total country-chic. Splurge on one of the eight spacious barn rooms, which have vaulted ceilings, indoor/outdoor fireplaces, and steam showers. Rooms from $595.
