Mother’s Day Wine Country Weekend — better than brunch

Still wondering what to do for Mother’s Day? If you want to make Mom feel special, there’s still time to plan a Mother’s Day wine country weekend. Get away from the people-packed city and experience the slower pace of Sonoma and Napa where springtime is in full bloom. 

Mother’s Day in wine country

This is the year to surprise the mother in your life with a wine country getaway. Chances are good she’d be thrilled with a couple days at a private vacation home in the countryside among rolling oak-studded hills and vineyards. 

Better than brunch in a restaurant

No question about it. It is nice not to have to prepare food yourself — not to mention the shopping and cleanup. We all appreciate dining in a restaurant. And, of course, brunch is a classic for this May day. But Mother’s Day is one of the busiest restaurant days of the year, so we have another idea.

Instead of getting dressed up to join the throngs of mothers and families, you could plan a quiet brunch at your comfortable vacation home, and we can help. We can arrange for a 5-star chefto come to you. They’ll bring the groceries, prepare a fabulous brunch, and clean up. That standout experience will gift Mom with memories for years to come.

Expand the Mother’s Day wine country experience

Maybe you want to do something other than brunch. Our in-house sommelier can curate a wine and food pairing designed around your special lady’s tastes, or map out a wine tour just for her. 

At The Wine Stay  we are about elevating life. Our list of add-on guest servicesmakes your stay with us extraordinary. We can arrange for a professional massage at your vacation home. Or perhaps you want to plan an adventure that takes you out into the spring beauty. 

Mother’s Day in a wine country vacation home is a deluxe gift for Mom, especially because she can enjoy quality time with those closest to her heart. Bring the whole family!
