TR’s Itinerary: On the River- Guerneville
Head to Moshin crossing the Wohler Bridge after using River Road as the main access- taste delicious pinot at this gravity-feed winery, and they will show you around- the hummingbird is the symbol of their constant state of motion. Reserve a time for a tour at Gary Farrell and food and wine taste- check out the view of the Russian River Valley from this hillside. Head to Korbel Champagne Cellars, nestled in the Redwoods- historic, scenic with tours of the winery and the gardens. Great tasting room and the Café @ Korbel where you can sit on decks under Redwoods and enjoy your lunch and sparkling wine. Zip on over to Northwood Golf Course for a quick nine on one of the most beautiful golf courses in the US- amazing Redwoods. Next stop is your lodging- Applewood Inn, Restaurant & Spa. Relax in the sumptuous accommodations and around the pool and spa amidst their apple orchards and Redwoods. Dine at the romantic, Michelin starred Applewood Restaurant.
Sleep well and after breakfast with the innkeepers in the morning, head over to Armstrong Woods to take a quick look at some old growth redwood trees. Next stop is Jenner where you can gaze at seals and incredible surf where the Russian River enters the Pacific Ocean at Goat Rock Beach- late lunch at Jenner Inn, Cottages & Restaurant then back to Guerneville for your spa treatment at West Sonoma Inn & Spa. Leave the driving to your innkeeper with their new service, Wine 2 Dine, and head to dinner tonight at boon eat+drink.
Here’s looking at you, kids.
