What to Bring
Like the Mediterranean, Sonoma Country has wet, mild winters and warm dry summers. Even in the winter, days have a high in the 50ºs F (17º C). A maritime layer of low clouds and fog often moves inland during the night and retreats in mid-morning. Summer evenings are usually quite cool. We recommend packing shorts, short-sleeve shirts, comfortable shoes and light dresses in the summer and more layers in the fall and winter when temperatures, especially in the evenings, tend to be cooler.
We recommend bringing three outfits more durable for activities such as horseback riding, biking and hiking. Don’t forget a hat to help shade you from the warm Sonoma sunshine.
Your hostess will take a variety of candid pictures of the group during your stay. Please view our photo blog for outfit inspirations.
