Sonoma is for lovers

Sean and our families recently spent an afternoon in Sonoma to look into some details for our wedding (I promise this will not turn into a wedding blog!) and had the chance to check out a few wineries while we were there. I snapped a few photos and thought I'd share some of them here. Our first stop was Jacuzzi Vineyards, which has the loveliest backyard area. It would be so much fun to have a picnic back there next time! My favorite was the fountain (pictured below) that someone had cleverly "decorated."
 
Next we visited Ram's Gate Winery--what an amazing space! It felt more like a hip boutique hotel in LA than a Sonoma winery. Rather than the rustic d├ęcor that is so pervasive at wineries, the spaces at Ram's Gate were designed with an edgy modern aesthetic in mind, which actually created a rather exclusive ambiance. I loved the views in the outdoor spaces, but can already picture myself enjoying one of the three indoor-outdoor fireplaces on a cold day this Fall.
 
 
 
 
Lastly, we visited the winery where we'll be getting married next Fall -- Viansa Winery. Here are just a few photos from Viansa. You'll have to wait till after the big day to see more details...
 
 
 
 
 
That's it for this little update, there will be another post soon on how my first week of school is going. Thanks as always for reading!
