Now, St. Francis invites entrants from around the country to experience their own “St. Francis Dream Date” by winning a romantic trip for two to Sonoma County to experience St. Francis Winery and the surrounding area first hand.

The dream date winner will receive round-trip transport for two to Sonoma County; luxury accommodations at the historic inn and spa, MacArthur Place; a VIP wine and food experience at St. Francis Winery; a romantic dinner for two at Sondra Bernstein’s famous the girl & the fig restaurant; and a picnic basket, prepared by St Francis’ Executive Chef David Bush.

Other prizes include dream dates for two at upscale restaurants near the winner’s hometown.
