If you're looking to explore an
emerging wine region, Anderson
Valley is an excellent option. Thirty
tasting rooms are clustered near Philo in Mendocino's prime wine-growing
region, but Highway 128's snaking curves safeguard the town's tranquility. Sparkling wines are big-Scharffenberger Cellars and Roederer Estate
produce bubblies that consistently rank among America's best-but you'll
find fruity Pinot Noirs at Goldeneye, Balo, and Baxter, and Gewürztraminers at Navarro and Toulouse. Stay at The Madrones, a Tuscany-inspired
compound featuring guest quarters, tasting rooms, and wood-fired fare at
Stone & Embers. Or sleep in an orchard cottage at Philo Apple Farm, where
you can take part in "stay and cook" weekends. No matter what, plan on at
least one farm-to-table dinner at The Bewildered Pig (don't skip the Dutchoven sourdough bread).

PETALUMA

Petaluma has come a long way
since 1882, when it was made
famous for perfecting the chicken
egg incubator. Today, this Sonoma County city attracts an open-minded
crowd with its third-wave coffee shops (Acre and Taylor Lane), lively food
truck scene (The Block), independent bookstore (Copperfield's), and
spontaneous outdoor drumming circles. Spend the night in the art-deco
Hotel Petaluma on the Petaluma River so you'll have extra time to eat
your way around town: Central Market's multi-course tasting menu,
Della Fattoria's amazing breads and brunch, The Shuckery's oysters, and
Speakeasy's late-night mac and cheese. Thanks to Lagunitas Brewing Co.,
HenHouse Brewing Co., and the middle of delightfully retro Ernie's Tin Bar,
Petaluma is a craft beer lover's paradise.

TRUCKEE
If you're seeking a no-pressure
mountain town, head to Truckee.
Whether you're trying Trokay's
prix fixe menu, blasting off to
Squaw Valley to ski KT-22's
formidable cornice, or browsing poetry at Word After Word
bookshop, it's easy to make this
place your own. The 1870s railroad town flaunts its Tahoe-chic
style in pioneer storefronts that
house breweries, brunch joints,
and eco-friendly lodges. (Top
picks: Truckee Public House,
Squeeze In, and Cedar House
Sport Hotel.) There's plenty of
culture to be found, too. Take a
weaving workshop at Atelier or
fire a clay pot at Truckee Roundhouse, listen to jazz at Moody's
Bistro, or visit the arts collective
at Gallery 5830. And, of course,
there's nonstop outdoor recreation on bike paths, hiking trails,
and golf courses.
