Please The Palate Pick of the Week: Vintners Inn, Santa Rosa

Traveling to Sonoma County, I have found myself staying at the Vintners Inn in Santa Rosa on numerous occasions. A luxury hotel located on a vineyard trail, the Vintners Inn has the feel of a villa in Italy. The rooms are warm and spacious and always inviting. But, on my most recent visit, I stayed in one of the newest rooms at the Vintners Inn and that is why it is the Please The Palate pick of the week.

The Vintners Inn is situated on 98 acres and is owned by Rhonda Carano of Ferrari Carano Winery. In 2016, the property underwent a renovation which added 34 rooms, for a total of 78 guestrooms and suites spread across five two-story villas.

Without a doubt, the bed is one of the most comfortable beds to sleep in. It is possible to want to relax in bed all day and skip wine tasting and other activities.

The new rooms are larger and lighter than the older rooms. They are still warm and inviting but have a more contemporary feel with clean, modern decor.

And the rooms have balconies that overlook the vineyards.

If wine tasting isn’t on the agenda, the new spa should be enough to get you out of the comfortable bed. Vi La Vita Spa is a 3,000 square foot full service spa. There are five treatment rooms, a retail store, an indoor pool and a 2,000 square foot outdoor pool and terrace.

If you are heading to Santa Rosa, Vintners Inn is a must-stay location. In addition to the new rooms, and the old rooms, as well as the new spa, there are two restaurants on site as well as a fitness center and a 1-mile walking loop through the vineyards.

After my recent stay at Vintners Inn in Santa Rosa, it is most definitely the Please The Palate pick of the week.
