The grapes surrounding Villa Carneros are those of Attune Vineyards — eight acres of meticulously planted and sustainably farmed field blends of heritage Burgundy Pinot Noir clones. Producing less than 600 cases of ultra-premium Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Rosé each year, Attune Wines is intent on making balanced wines with both structure and finesse, all under the guided watch of winemaker Kenneth Juhasz. A stay at Villa Carneros invites you into the world of wine, giving you a firsthand glimpse at the winemaking process from start to finish. Contemplate and savor the final Attune product cozied up around the outdoor fireplace or in the villa’s spacious wine cellar, where a simple glass table is perched atop a wine barrel.
More than a place, Sonoma Valley is a state of mind, with a culture that honors its roots as the birthplace of California’s premium wine industry. At its heart is the charming Sonoma town plaza - the largest in California - only 45 minutes from San Francisco and less than 10 minute from Villa Carneros. Ringed by boutiques, galleries, historic sites, and eateries that range from intimate cafes to four-star restaurants, the plaza is a hub for visitors and locals alike. Surrounded by vineyards, farms and groves of olive and fruit trees, there is no better place to put the top down on the car, cruise the open country roads and sample organic delights from the numerous roadside food stands. Of course, a trip to Sonoma wouldn’t be complete without a stop or two at the nearby wineries for a private tour and tasting of the lush reds and crisp whites that this region is so famous for. Some of our favorite spots within just minutes of Villa Carneros include:
