A Weekend in Wine Country

Where to Stay

Just a few blocks from Sonoma’s historic square, MacArthur Place underwent a $20 million renovation in 2019 with SFA Design and RDC Architecture at the helm. The property’s sixty-four guest rooms, both suites and cottages, are dotted along well-groomed walkways. Rooms feature custom furniture, indoors and out, and spa-like bathrooms outfitted in Duravit. (Tip: Request a room with a tub!) MACARTHURPLACE.COM

What to Do

Inspired by author Heather Hebert’s new book, The New Architecture of Wine, and exclusive to MacArthur Place guests, this tour is the easiest way to make the most of your day in wine country. You’ll be picked up at the hotel’s front doors and whisked away to the region’s most elite, design-forward wineries, like Stewart Cellars, Three Sticks, and Davis Estates (from top, clockwise). Add a chef-prepared lunch and signed copy of the book, and you’ve got a perfect day. MACARTHURPLACE.COM/OFFER/WINE!DESIGN

Where to Eat

This Mediterranean-inspired kitchen at MacArthur Place is the spot to see and be seen on a Friday night in Sonoma. The dining experience features healthy, organic options, along with a few indulgent treats—the Cacio e Pepe is not to be missed! Fresh and locally sourced ingredients are the building blocks of the menu. Pop by for breakfast to fuel up for a day of tastings, or swing by for a craft cocktail when you’re all wined out.
