Villa Carneros - Sonoma County


What we love about Villa Carneros

Poised amidst the vineyards of Attune Winery, Villa Carneros has all of the qualities you are looking for in your Northern California getaway. A short drive through the young vines brings you from the main road to the grand entrance of this single-story, plantation-style villa. Set in the heart of Sonoma County’s Carneros appellation, here you will enjoy seven acres of contemporary country living — spend your days gathered together on the columned porch wicker rocking chairs, lounging around the spa-equipped swimming pool, or sampling local varietals in your private tasting room when the mood strikes. Complete with five en-suite bedrooms, all of which have either direct porch access or views out to the vineyards, Villa Carneros is the perfect retreat for your large group of friends and family members. Only three miles to the charming shops, squares and world-famous restaurants of Sonoma, this centrally located address allows you to wine and dine at a whim or stay in and host your own private dinner party. Whatever the occasion, we are confident Villa Carneros will be just the rustic retreat to lay back, relax and experience the magic of Sonoma Valley.

Good to Know

The grapes surrounding Villa Carneros are those of Attune Vineyards — eight acres of meticulously planted and sustainably farmed field blends of heritage Burgundy Pinot Noir clones. Producing less than 600 cases of ultra-premium Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Rosé each year, Attune Wines is intent on making balanced wines with both structure and finesse, all under the guided watch of winemaker Kenneth Juhasz. A stay at Villa Carneros invites you into the world of wine, giving you a firsthand glimpse at the winemaking process from start to finish. Contemplate and savor the final Attune product in the villa’s spacious wine cellar, where a simple glass table is perched atop a wine barrel. This property is on a working vineyard. Vineyard workers may be seen during certain times of the year.

Eat, Drink & Play

More than a place, Sonoma Valley is a state of mind, with a culture that honors its roots as the birthplace of California’s premium wine industry. At its heart is the charming Sonoma town plaza - the largest in California - only 45 minutes from San Francisco and less than 10 minute from Villa Carneros. Ringed by boutiques, galleries, historic sites, and eateries that range from intimate cafes to four-star restaurants, the plaza is a hub for visitors and locals alike. Surrounded by vineyards, farms and groves of olive and fruit trees, there is no better place to put the top down on the car, cruise the open country roads and sample organic delights from the numerous roadside food stands. Of course, a trip to Sonoma wouldn’t be complete without a stop or two at the nearby wineries for a private tour and tasting of the lush reds and crisp whites that this region is so famous for. Some of our favorite spots within just minutes of Villa Carneros include:

  • Fremont Diner
    A contemporary take on the classic American diner, this food joint is a must-visit while in the area, offering menu items like shrimp and grits, chicken and waffles, and homemade biscuits and gravy
  • Sonoma TrainTown Railroad
    Families know to head to Train Town for a joyous day of nostalgic fun on one of the largest rideable scale model trains in the country.
  • Sonoma Plaza
    Cruise around Sonoma’s central square by foot or bicycle, where every corner surprises you with a romantic cafe, an old adobe storefront, a shaded picnic spot or live music and fine dining

    Dine at the charming, Zagat-rated bistro that is Cafe la Haye for seasonal, chef-selected American dishes

  • Mission San Francisco Solano

  • Napa
    The town of Napa blends an exciting urban view with a wine country lifestyle, a place where you can expect culinary adventures and world-class entertainment
