My wife and I (and 7 month old) are planning to visit wine country. We've been before, but when we went last time, we only stayed in the town of Sonoma and visited a few wineries in the area.
This time, we're planning to be in wine country for 3 full days, leaving on the 4th. We plan on making it a very relaxing time in California, especially since we'll have our six month old.
We'd like to stay in a town/area that we've never been too, but we really liked the feel of Sonoma (and we stayed at the Inn at Sonoma and LOVED IT!).
We'd like to visit other areas in the Sonoma Valley or Russian River Valley or if you would suggest a different area, please do. We'd like to choose a hotel in ONE town and then be able to drive to the other areas and wineries (without having to drive a 1.5 hours away.
I've read good things about Healdsburg, but not sure about it yet...
Is there a hands-down best town to stay in? Or if not, what are your favorites and why?
And if you recommend a specific hotel, please do.
Thanks a lot for your help! I'm kind of on information overload at this point, so any suggestions are appreciated!
