Sonoma: Wine Country doesn't get more real than Sonoma Valley, whose rich soils mark the birthplace of California's wine industry. Cradled between the Mayacamas and the Sonoma Mountain ranges, Sonoma Valley encompasses a rolling patchwork of vineyards, quaint farms and 13,000 acres of scenic parkland. In the center of town, the eight-acre Sonoma Plaza is a National Historic Landmark, strewn with sprawling shade trees and bordered by carefully preserved adobe buildings. Up the road in Glen Ellen, author and bohemian adventurer Jack London lived and wrote at his pristine Beauty Ranch, now an 800-acre state historic park. Sonoma is a town of 9,000, home to generations of families as well as a favorite destination of movie stars. Walk two blocks to café La Haye voted one of the top 100 restaurants in the US, then walk next door to La Haye Art Center where local Sonoma artists are featured. Boutique shopping, the Sebastiani theater, home of the Sonoma Film Festival, and the Swiss Hotel Restaurant-one of Sonoma’s oldest family owned restaurants are among the town’s highlights.

We are traveling companions who love Europe, particularly France, Italy, Great Britain and the Netherlands, although we’re open to any European location. We live in the Bay Area and would like to travel during any time in the year. We would like to exchange for up to 1 month and would like the use of a car.
We are both retired from working for the City of Sonoma as head of human resources and as a Nurse Practitioner in San Francisco.
