If you’re a wine lover who’s ready to sample world-class wines & plant-based foods, then join me in sunny California for 5 days of amazing food, wine & relaxation, where you will up-level your wine knowledge and form lifelong memories and friendships!
Sipping wine beside the pool as the setting sun slowly sinks behind gently swaying trees, a gentle breeze delights your senses with the scent of the redwood trees…
…it’s the end of an incredible day spent experiencing renowned California wines, indulging in a delectable gourmet dinner, and spending time visiting farm animals at a sanctuary.
You laugh with new friends, sharing your excitement about ALL the tasty plant-based cheeses you sampled.
You take a deep breath, exhale, and tell yourself how proud you are for having made this investment in your self-care.
Looking out the expansive canopy of redwood trees, you feel complete, blissful, and grateful for this experience.
You can hardly believe that, at last, you’re here, surrounded by the breathtaking and iconic California landscapes.
Welcome to California!
On this retreat, through immersive wine tastings, dinners, and winery visits with our very own local wine expert, you’ll deepen your knowledge and learn new skills while having fun with your new like-minded friends!
During your time in Sonoma Valley, through workshops and wine tastings, you will learn how to pair your favorite meal with the perfect wine, so you can go home with newfound confidence to throw a kick-ass dinner party that people will be talking about for days.
You'll drink California's finest wines and discover Sonoma Valley, the wine capital, through the eyes of a local vegan and wine expert, no tourist trap wineries or restaurants for you!
You’re a foodie and have high expectations when it comes to food, and you’re not alone!
On this retreat, you will be wined and dined (literally!), expect nothing less than a 5-star experience with me.
You’ll be dining at a variety of local restaurants, and we will even have a couple of upscale picnics (with delicious wine of course).
The meals included in this retreat will all be 100% plant-based - this is an amazing opportunity to expand your palette and try foods you’ve never tried before.
I promise that plant-based foods are not boring, and yes you will be full after eating the meals!
Have food allergies or intolerances?
We will only be eating at establishments that are allergy-friendly!
I myself have deadly food allergies, and will not eat somewhere unless I feel totally confident in the chef’s abilities to take proper precautions.
I know how scary it can be traveling with food allergies, but you are in good hands with me!
Deepen your California wine knowledge with hands-on, immersive experiences in Sonoma Wine Country.
No need to worry about finding a restaurant/winery that has delicious plant-based options, it will all be taken care of for you.
Discover a new city with a local wine expert.
Make lifelong friendships with fellow foodies and wine travelers.
By the end of this retreat, you will have sampled famous wines, participated in unique and exclusive experiences, learned how to pair wine with plant-based foods, and gained the tools and knowledge to up-level your wine knowledge game.
All while having taken the time for YOURSELF and your self-care while forming incredible lifetime memories with new friends.

I’m Karine Lang and I’ve been living a plant-based lifestyle for over 18 years!
I lived in the San Francisco Bay Area for 7 years and feel so fortunate to have traveled all over California visiting over 100 wineries.
It’s safe to say that I have a passion for wine and all things related to plant-based foods.
I am an avid traveler with an extensive background in event planning, in addition to being a Plant-Based Chef.
I’ve always been the one in charge of planning the social activities and vacations with my friends and family - and I’m so excited to plan a memorable adventure for you.
As someone who has deadly food allergies on top of being plant-based, eating while traveling hasn’t always come easy.
But I have become an expert at it by doing my research, being prepared, and always having a plan B.
Exploring new cities and countries has been transformational for me, and I believe it is an amazing way to hit the reset button on life.
Travel is a great form of self-care, something that should be highly prioritized because let's face it, we can all get to a point where we are not taking enough time to just sit back and relax.
Life is so short, there is only one of you.
It’s time to put yourself first and come on a FUN adventure so you can decompress and come back refreshed.
I thrive on providing memorable and high-quality experiences for my guests and I can’t wait to meet you on this beautiful adventure!
