My wife and I enjoy living in the wine country of Northern Calif. It's a great place to live and an even better place to vacation. Sonoma County is way more laid back than Napa, there aren't any crowds at the wineries and usually, the tasting fee is about 1/3 of what you'd pay in Napa. On top of all that, we have better wine on our side of the hills. If you must go to Napa, it'll only take you about half an hour.
We have two dogs that we are happy to "loan out to you" while you are here if you need your dog fix. If you find yourself in a market grab a handful of carrots for the horses across the street, they are as gentle as can be.
We enjoy traveling both domestic and international. A favorite place during the summer is the Eastern Sierra lakes with their wily Trout. We are definitely foodies and that's easy to do up here in Sonoma. During the summer we usually have a simple organic garden growing and you shouldn't be surprised if you find some fresh vegetables on your patio table when you get back from your day.
I own my own company and work from home, so as a host, you will get as much or as little of me as you chose. We are easy going, non-smokers and have been known to spend some wonderful warm summer evenings with our guests on their patio with several bottles of Sonoma grown wine with some local cheese and just picked apples, pears, plums and apricots from our trees.
