Exploring California’s Wine Country

As you wind past hillsides covered with old-growth vines and approach the mission-style buildings of Fairmont Sonoma Mission Inn & Spa, you'll know you've arrived at a special destination. The historic hotel, built in 1926 on grounds home to ancient healing waters, has been luxuriously restored to reflect the casual elegance of Northern California. If you intend to immerse yourself in California's wine country, this is where you need to start.
