DAY 2 - VINEYARDS DAY
8:30 am - Optional Group Meditation This is a great way to set your intentions for the next few days and start your day with a clear mind.

This is your time to sit back and chill.
Grab breakfast on your own, or with a new friend and get ready to visit some of the most iconic California vineyards - think rolling hills, fields of grapes, and breathtaking views.
Get ready to sip on some incredible wines.
Today, you will be enjoying a mouth-watering picnic lunch at an elegant winery.
After the wine tasting adventures are over, we will make our way into Sonoma Plaza for a delicious dinner, and more wine if you're up for it!
Boxed lunch, and dinner included.
DAY 3 - FARM SANCTUARY & SONOMA PLAZA
9 am - Charlie Acres Farm Sanctuary Tour- If you're an early riser and you enjoy having a big breakfast, I recommend grabbing breakfast at the resort.

Get ready - you are in for a very special experience today! You will be touring the farm and visiting with the animals on the farm (are you squealing in excitement yet??).
After the tour, you will learn how to put together a beautiful-looking plant-based charcuterie board that is sure to impress your loved ones!
Afterward, you will be eating a yummy picnic snack box with plant-based charcuterie and plant-based cheese while overlooking the picturesque sanctuary.
It’ll be hard to say goodbye to our new animal friends, but off we go to spend the afternoon walking around the Sonoma Plaza (and wine tasting of course!)
Sonoma Plaza has a huge selection of restaurants, wineries, shopping, galleries, and historical sites.
Michelle is going to take us to one of the BEST veg-friendly wineries where we will be treated like royalty!
