From the moment we arrived at Alpicella until the moment we left, we experienced nothing but total serenity. The beauty of the land, the breathtaking views, the soulful wine and the generosity and energy of the owners, Betsy and Dan, all make it impossible not to feel totally relaxed and at home while you are at Alpicella. The guest cottage is beautifully appointed, extremely comfortable and private, offering a serene view of the hillside from the bed (a real treat to wake up and see the deer grazing on the hillside). The kitchen has everything one would need - whether heating up leftovers or preparing a multiple course feast (each of which you can enjoy from the beautiful deck overlooking the Alpicella Vineyard and the valley and hillsides beyond). Despite the indulgence and decadence we felt while staying here, everything feels extremely organic and fits seamlessly into the land - both physically and spiritually. Dan and Betsy have created a hidden paradise in Sonoma county. We highly recommend Betsy's customized vineyard tour and a swim in the mineral fed pool. Be sure to hear Dan and Betsy recount the history of the land and their work in creating this magical place. We highly recommend a stay at Alpicella for anyone (young or old, single or coupled) who wants to reconnect with nature and experience the treasures of this special hideaway in Sonoma County. We will DEFINITELY be back!
