A Destination Bachelorette Party in Sonoma or Napa Wine Country

With summer weddings on the calendar, it's the season to celebrate a bride-to-be's last fling before the ring. Why not make it a bachelorette party in California's renowned wine country? With its picturesque vineyards, world-class wineries, and delectable culinary scene, Sonoma and Napa offer the perfect backdrop for a memorable and indulgent celebration. Rent a luxurious AirBnB like Casa Sebastiani and host food-centric events to complement the vino. Whether you're planning a laid-back picnic among the vines or an elegant dinner soirée, here are some ideas to tantalize the taste buds of your bachelorette party attendees:

Wine and Cheese Pairing Extravaganza:

Kick off your wine country adventure with a sophisticated wine and cheese pairing session. Set up a charming spread with an assortment of artisanal cheeses, crackers, and accompaniments such as fig jam, honeycomb, and Marcona almonds. Select a variety of cheeses ranging from Bellwether Farms' creamy Crescenza and tangy Laura Chenel goat cheese to Cowgirl Creamery's cider washed Hopalong and sharp cheddar from Vella Cheese to cater to different palates. Pair each cheese with complementary wines like bubbles from Sigh Champagne Bar in Sonoma, Chardonnay from Patz and Hall, a refreshing Rosé from Pangloss, or Pinot Noir from Three Sticks for a sensory journey through the region's diverse terroir.

Vineyard Picnic Perfection:

Spend a leisurely afternoon soaking in the stunning scenery with a picturesque vineyard picnic. Pack an elegant picnic basket filled with gourmet delights like crusty Della Fattoria baguettes, artisanal Ovello charcuterie, fresh salads, and seasonal fruit. Don't forget to include crowd-pleasers like avocado peach summer rolls, caprese skewers, and decadent chocolate truffles from Wine Country Chocolates for a touch of indulgence. Don't have the time to put together a picnic? Oakville Grocery has you covered and you can even pre-order for pickup. Pair your picnic fare with refreshing sparkling wine or rosé for a quintessential wine country experience.

In-Home Dining:

For a more upscale affair, treat the bride to a private chef dinner in the comfort of your vacation rental. Chefs like Vine Dining bring the 5-star restaurant experience to you, and you don't even have to change out of your pajamas. Our guests love fun experiences like a Family Style Luau or a four-course Wine Country Tasting Menu paired with a professional sommelier to provide wine pairings. You can also do a cooking class and learn how to hand make pasta or roll sushi. The best part is that you don't need a designated driver to take you home at the end of the night.

DIY Pizza and Wine Night:

For a fun and interactive culinary experience, host a DIY pizza and wine night at your VRBO or Airbnb. Set up a pizza station with an array of fresh toppings, including gourmet cheeses, prosciutto, arugula, roasted vegetables, and herbs. Let each guest customize their own pizzas before popping them into the oven and enjoying the fruits of their labor. Pair the homemade pizzas with an assortment of local wines procured from your Wine Tasting outing, from Russian River Zinfandel to Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir.

Mimosa Bar Brunch:

Keep the party going the next morning with a delightful brunch spread. Your gal pals will love bite-sized mini quiches, deviled eggs with caviar, bruleed avocado toast, fruit kebabs with honey lavender yogurt, and delicate tea sandwiches. All topped with a creative mimosa bar -- think peach ginger, pretty in pink strawberry, Tiffany blue curacao, and minted lemonade flavors.
