Our Wedding in Windsor

Twenty-one years ago today, Mr. TWS and I were married on this deck in Windsor, California. With a view of grapevines and surrounding hills, we said our vows in front of a small group of family members at my parents’ home in the heart of Sonoma County wine country in a vineyard wedding.

Although we joke that it’s been “…twenty-one long, hard years”, we’ve had many wonderful times and travels. While Sonoma County is special to me for sentimental reasons, it’s one of my favorite recommendations for a travel destination as well as a getaway for San Francisco Bay Area residents.

With hundreds of wineries in the county, there are plenty of tasting rooms to visit from well-known vineyards such as Ferrari-Carano, Sonoma-Cutrer, and Rodney Strong to small family operations. Historic and charming towns like Sonoma and Healdsburg offer shopping, dining and more wine sipping. Take a drive along the Sonoma coast, hike in the hills, take bike tours in the valley, or ride in a hot-air balloon.

You might even think about having a vineyard wedding.
