Cavedale Ridge is in the heart of Sonoma, one of the world’s top wine-producing regions, and some of the region's best wineries are within 20 minutes drive of the property. Sonoma Valley alone, which the house overlooks, has over 100 wineries to explore. Many other well-known Sonoma appellations are within 45 minutes drive, as is the famed Napa Valley. The area is therefore well set up for wine-tasting tours.


Sonoma is also a well-known gourmet destination – the first farmers markets were held here and the farm-to-table tradition continues strongly. Our best local restaurants are in Sonoma town, Glen Ellen and Kenwood, where you will also find high-end independent food markets, farm stalls, or bakeries for your wine tour picnics. Private chefs can prepare breakfast, brunch, lunch, and dinner at the house and offer wine pairings too.


If you want to spend time in the natural environment, there are hikes through oak woodlands, around lakes or up mountains in the nearby beautiful Jack London State Historic Park, or Sonoma Valley and Sugar Loaf Ridge regional parks. You could also explore Sonoma Valley on hire bikes, or spend a glorious day floating down the Russian River near Healdsburg (1 hour away) in kayaks.


As soon as you book, we send you our list of recommended restaurants and food markets, plus wine tour drivers, private chefs, and yoga and massage practitioners who will come to the house.
