The best way to explore Sonoma is biking through the vineyards and farmlands. It lets you slow down and appreciate the rolling hills of the wine country.  Host Kati joined Randy Johnson of Getaway Adventures for a Sip and Cycle excursion with winery stops along the way for tastings.

They started at Martorana Family Winery, picking grapes and learning about optimal harvest times. Each step of the winemaking process becomes a deeper connection to the land, something Kati experienced firsthand with Chris Benziger of Benziger Family Winery. In a similar way, Kyle and Katina Connaughton, the husband and wife team behind the inventive and three-Michelin-starred restaurant SingleThread, transform the freshest seasonal produce from their farm into genius culinary creations.
