What’s better than a weekend away in wine country?! We recently spent an amazing weekend at The Sandman Hotel, which is an adorable hotel located in Santa Rosa (within Sonoma County). It has a trendy “California-style” aesthetic, friendly staff, and clean rooms. They have all the amenities you need for a good time, including an outdoor pool, hot tub, chic pool bar, and outdoor fire pits – and we took advantage of all of them while we were there.
On top of it all, I highly recommend checking out their “VIP Wine Tasting” package, which offers a “Harvest Card” in addition to a stay at the hotel. Harvest Card holders get complimentary tastings and exclusive discounts at local wineries, distilleries, and restaurants.
Here’s a look at our itinerary from the weekend and some Harvest Card partners that I recommend visiting during your stay:
Wake Up & Enjoy Free Breakfast At The Hotel
For me, there’s nothing better that a *free* breakfast. Grab some fresh fruit, coffee, and waffles!
Hit Up Some Local Wineries (Using Your Harvest Card)
You have plenty of options on the list but I highly recommend Bowman Cellars, Taft Street Winery, and Balletto Winery
Relax By The Pool & Hot Tub
They have an adorable pool bar with drinks and snacks if you’re hungry or thirsty. And to my delight, they have frosé for cooling off on a hot day.
Grab Dinner (Get a discount with your Harvest Card)
There’s a great selection of participating restaurants on the Harvest Card list. For a memorable fine dining experience, I recommend checking out John Ash & Co (their risotto is spectacular).
Unwind By The Fire
The hotel offers a few outdoor fire pits for guests to use at their leisure. We enjoyed recapping our day cozied up by the fire with a glass of wine.
And there you have it, a perfect wine-filled weekend stay. Check out The Sandman Hotel to book your stay!
