There is no place like Sonoma Valley for Easter Sunday. Whether you’re looking for the perfect place to hide those eggs, the best wine to pair with your lamb dinner or that special restaurant to host your family brunch, Sonoma has it all. Start your Easter morning off right with an unforgettable Sunrise Service at Cline Cellars, the original site of the San Francisco de Solano Mission. Then hop on over to one or two of over 30 wineries that are open for the holiday and sip some Sonoma wine. Once you’ve worked up an appetite tasting and soaking up the stunning views make your way to one of 20 restaurants serving up anything from sandwiches to three course special menus. But we’re not quite done yet. Sunrise Service, wine and food, what more do you need you ask? Well, Easter eggs of course! Head up to Imagery Estate Winery and hunt for their expertly hidden treats.
Have the kids along for the ride? Even better! Start a day early with an Easter egg hunt on Saturday, April 19th and choose between the Sonoma Plaza where you can meet up with the Easter Bunny or B.R. Cohn Winery where there will be face painting and crepes. If Sunday fits your schedule better try the Oakmont Golf Club or Sugarloaf Ridge State Park as hunting ground for those pastel prizes. Then taste wine while the kids play at one of our family friendly wineries like Benziger, Kaz, Landmark and Nicholson Ranch. Next fill up those Easter baskets with goodies from the Basque Boulangerie Café or Sonoma Cheese Factory and enjoy a picnic in the Sonoma Plaza park. Finish the day with a jaunt through Cornerstone Sonoma, a unique festival of gardens complete with children’s areas. It’s also home to three tasting rooms, a great café and a bocce ball court. No matter how you choose to spend your Easter weekend in Sonoma it’s bound to be filled with good times and priceless memories.
