Two Nights Stay in Private Ocean View Home
Want to get away for the weekend, and do something fun? We have a special event planned for you in stunning Mendocino wine country! We will wine and dine you, and teach you how to prepare a delicious yet simple 5 course Italian meal. See below for more details and other fun activities.
This is the gorgeous ocean view private home we will be staying in, there are rooms available in both the old water tower to the right, and in the main house. The house was recently renovated and has a fabulous new kitchen for our cooking lesson!
Imagine your work week stress melting away as you wind through the beautiful redwoods and spectacular Northern California coast. Once you arrive we will welcome you with a home cooked Italian meal and local wine served in our beautiful glass enclosed sundeck.
Five Course Italian cooking lesson
Our lovely chef Francesca is from the Fruili region of Italy, and will be doing our cooking, as well as our cooking lesson. You can sit back and sip vino while you watch the demonstration, or feel free to get your hands dirty learning how to make home made pasta.
Everyone will get recipes to take home, so don't worry about taking notes, just enjoy!
Winery Picnic on the bluffs and Bocci Ball
Get your game on! We'll be serving aperitvo while we play a game of Bocce Ball and enjoy the ocean breeze at sunset. On Sunday, we'll head into Fort Bragg for a lovely picnic lunch at a beautiful winery on the bluffs to take in the ocean views, we might even get to see some whales in the distance
