Video: A Sonoma wine country getaway with a twist (or two)

New Stark Insider travel video 3 Days in Sonoma is now playing!

Here’s hoping your wine country getaway doesn’t exactly go down as it does in this video!

For those who have visited or are fortunate to call it home I think we can all agree: Sonoma is a magical place. If you’re based in the San Francisco Bay Area, we’re so very spoiled to have such a beautiful place — along with Napa — only a short drive away. And the Airbnbs there? Plenty to love and explore, as you may soon find out while watching this video.

Short film ‘3 Days in Sonoma’ features 5 years of footage shot across Sonoma and Napa Valley wine country, located north of San Francisco, California.

For those across the U.S. (and even the world), these are superb choices for those planning special destination travel getaways. Food. Wine. Arts. R&R. You can’t do much better than Sonoma and Napa.

In this special Stark Insider travel video, we go deep into the Redwoods. I spend three days in Sonoma (with a quick side-trip to Napa as well!) visiting various wineries, shops and chatting it up with some of the more interesting people and personalities that call this place home.

Here are just a few of the people and places I encounter during my Sonoma wine country ESCape:

  • Mill Valley Film Festival (just north of San Francisco)
  • Jean-Charles Boisset
  • Stephen and Cheryl (LaVrar) Carrozzi
  • Rick Moshin
  • Chris Donatiello
  • Bradford Brenner
  • Osvaldo Jimenez (Moustache Baked Goods, Healdsburg)
