@Wine_Spectator​ Wine Wanderlust Travel Guide on Signature Sonoma Valley: A highlight this year is the Signature Sonoma Valley weekend, which brings together more than 80 wineries of Sonoma Valley with a hyper-local focus. On Friday and Saturday morning, guests can choose from two event options. A handful of small-group wine lunches ($175 per person) take place in private homes or winery rooms that highlight distinctive architecture, interior design or striking landscapes in a historical context. For example, @BuenaVistaWines​, deemed a California Historic Landmark, will host lunch in its Champagne cellar, which was renovated in 2012 to replicate the interior as it first appeared in the 1850s. Or you can opt for one of the vineyard immersions, which dive into topics like the Moon Mountain District’s many volcanic soils and Los Carneros’ varying cool-climate Chardonnays. New this year is the Retrospective event on Saturday afternoon ($250 per person), a vertical tasting from Hanzell Vineyards​ @hanzellfarm in an exclusive tasting moderated by Culinary Institute of America professor Robert Bath. On Sunday, “Bubbles & Brunch” ($65 per person) is the final send-off, offering local sparkling wines at The General’s Daughter. If you want a fuller look at the many wineries here, consider the weekend package, which offers these events plus a few more, including a Legends Dinner with winemakers, ICON, and transportation to everything, for $1,750 per person.
