One of my absolute favorite places to relax and getaway for an afternoon is the southern corridor of Sonoma on Highway 121. Along this route are three of my favorite wineries, an amazing European Antiques store, and my favorite high end salvage shop. I always take visitors to Viansa winery, a little piece of Italy in the southern part of Sonoma, built on a hilltop to capture valley views. Guests love to snap photos of the architecture of this winery, with its tiled rooftops and terra cotta colored walls covered with climbing ivy.
Whenever visitors come to town, this is where I like to take them for an incredible afternoon.
