starters, there's no need
for a designated driver
when your group
heads out on a wine
country tour in a
chauffeured limousine.
Traveling easily along
Sonoma's winding back
roads from one winery
to the next, limos truly
are the way to go. Or,
join an escorted tour,
where guides design an
itinerary, complete
with special dinners,
inns, hot-air balloon rides or other cus-
tom adventures. Contact Pure Luxury
Transportation Services, (800) 626-
5466, www.pureluxury.com ; or Wine
Destinations, (800) 630-WINE or

Benziger Family Winery: Popular
with novices and wine buffs alike, the
45-minute, tractor-pulled tram tour at
this friendly operation offers a good
introduction to winemaking, from
grapes to glass. Admire the view of
Sonoma Mountain and, afterward,
check out the winery's Peacock Aviary,
Redwood Picnic Grove and, of course,
tasting rooms. Contact (888) 490-
2739 or www.benzigerwinery.com .

Jack London State Historic
Park: Jack London, celebrated author
of "Call of the Wild" and other clas-
sics, was -a restless world adventurer.
He eventually settled down in Sonoma
County near Glen Ellen, in a crescent-
shaped valley he dubbed "the Valley of
the Moon." Today, visitors traipse the
grounds of his Beauty Ranch estate,
inspecting the remains of an experi-
mental vineyard, barn and the Wolf
House, a magnificent, 26-room man- .
sion that burned down mysteriously in
1913 just a few days before London
and his wife were to move in. A
house-turned-museum contains origi-
nal manuscripts, first editions and art-
work. Call (707) 938-5216.

Spa Scene: Behind its pale pink
stucco facade, the venerable Mission
Inn & Spa near the historic town of

Sonoma delivers the
kind of deluxe ameni-
ties and relaxing spa
treatments you'd
expect from a quietly
elegant property with
tvvo natural mineral
hot springs. (707-938-
9000; www.sono-
At nearby
MacArthur Place, a
renovated inn, guests
savor such treatments
as the "Sonoma Olive
Oil Body Polish" and
"Red Wine Grape-
seed Massage" in a
lovely garden setting.
www.macarthurplace.com ). And, for
something completely different,
Osmosis, in Freestone, offers a
Japanese enzyme bath in a redwood
tub, followed by a long, relaxing mas-
sage. Heated by natural fermentation,
the unusual sawdust-like mixture of
cedar fibers, rice bran and more than
600 active plant enzymes draws toxins
from the body, while harmonic music
and a tranquil meditation garden do
wonders for the brain. Contact (707)
823-8231, or www.osmosis.com .

Head for Healdsburg: Back in the
old days, they called it the "buckle of
the prune belt." But nearby fruit
orchards gave way to grapevines and,
today, Healdsburg is the heart of
Sonoma wine country, boasting 50
nearby wineries (many accessible by
bicycle) and enough inventive eateries
to keep even jaded palates coming back
for more. Located near three prestigious
river valleys, it's a lively town of charm-
ingboutiques, bakeries, cafes and inns
set around a tree-shaded square, perfect
for clopping around in a horse-drawn
carriage. Time your visit to coincide
with the twice-weekly Farmer's Market
or a summer concert in the plaza.
Check www.healdsburg.org or call
(707) 433-6935.
Bodega Bay: Forty years after the
filming of Hitchcock's 1963 classic
horror film, "The Birds," visitors flock
to this coastal community where
northern Sonoma County meets the
Pacific sea. The beaches are favorite
