Discover local spirits, experience romance and pose for a professional photo shoot at Sonoma Resort.

The Lodge at Sonoma Renaissance Resort & Spa, in the heart of Sonoma wine country, has announced three new getaway packages for 2013 fall travel. The exclusive experiences will be available Aug. 1, 2013, to Dec. 30, 2014, and will offer guests new ways to discover Sonoma — and themselves.

From a personal photo shoot with one of San Francisco’s top photographers to an in-depth tasting of sommelier-selected local spirits and an under-the-radar distillery tour to a romantic weekend complete with a private balcony with bubbles and caviar, The Lodge at Sonoma brings together unique experiences and the best that Sonoma wine country has to offer.

“Personal Paparazzo”
Whether guests dream about having an E! TV crew follow their every move or simply look back at vacation snaps and wish photos were better, The Lodge at Sonoma has them covered! A renowned photographer is available for a half or full day photo session. The “paparazzi” can catch vacationers relaxing poolside — or The Lodge can suggest some picturesque venues for a wine country photo shoot. After a two-night stay in a Cottage Room, guests return home with a portfolio of professional pictures — without a blurry shot in the bunch.

The “Personal Paparazzo” package is for a two-night stay in a Cottage Room and includes breakfast for two at Carneros Bistro and Wine Bar and a three-hour photo shoot. The photographer’s availability is limited and requires advance booking. “Personal Paparazzo” package starts at $1,478 (July – Oct. 26), $1,438 (Oct. 27-Nov. 9) and $1,278 (Nov. 10 – Dec. 30).

“Sommelier Spirits Selections”
Augmenting wine country knowledge with more than just wine geek speak, one of Bean & Bottle’s beverage experts will lead guests through an in-depth tasting of locally produced spirits selections, including the new Hophead vodka, St. George Spirits Terroir and Botanivore Gins and Charbay’s famed flavored vodkas. After discovering some of the best, visitors will enjoy a rare private tour of Sonoma’s first and only post-Prohibition distillery, Hello Cello, with proprietors and distillers Fred and Amy Groth. Offering the opportunity to experience a range of locally and seasonally produced spirits — from limon-and figcellos and the award-winning Hookers House Bourbon to new Sugar Daddy Rum, touring Hello Cello gives visitors a first-hand lesson in local liquor. After an amazing night’s sleep in a Cottage Room, guests head home to wow family and friends with new discoveries beyond Cabernet and Chardonnay.

The “Sommelier Spirits Selections” package is for a one-night stay in a Cottage Room and includes breakfast for two at Carneros Bistro and Wine Bar, a spirits tasting at Bean & Bottle and a tour of Hello Cello. “Sommelier Spirits Selections” packages start at $309 weekdays, $339 weekends.

“Love at the Lodge”
For those falling in love or rediscovering each other all over again, The Lodge has created their new “Love at the Lodge” package. The package asks guests to enjoy a complimentary upgrade to a private Cottage Room for two nights, breakfast for two at Carneros, a rose petal turndown and a turndown treat from The Lodge’s chefs. Couples get to Experience famed sparkling wine house Domaine Carneros’ new Sparkling Suite, with a private balcony overlooking Carneros’ vineyards. The Sparkling Suite includes a private tasting for two of Domaine Carneros’ sparkling wines and pinot noirs, paired perfectly with caviar, cheese, charcuterie and all the necessary accoutrements. A personal wine educator will discreetly be on hand to oversee every need and ensure glasses never go empty. As a keepsake, guests will be gifted with the most memorable wine of the day that they can save for the cellar or continue the evening’s celebration. This is an ideal weekend for guests looking to celebrate a special occasion in Sonoma.

The “Love at the Lodge” package is for a two-night stay in a Cottage Room and the Domaine Carneros Sparkling Suite Experience, a rose-petal turndown, a special turndown amenity and breakfast for two at Carneros Bistro and Wine Bar. “Love at the Lodge” packages start at $929 weekdays, $959 weekends.
