Sonoma Wine Country - My Spa Shop


A visit to one of Sonoma’s 250 world-class wineries has turned many a casual wine taster into a “master of the glass.” But Sonoma’s gifts stretch far beyond its sensuous chardonnays and aromatic pinot noirs. This region is also blessed with ideal climate, picturesque rolling hills and 76 miles of thrilling Pacific coastline.

Evocative of Tuscany and Provence, this great escape is a mere 30 miles from San Francisco but a world away from its throbbing city rhythms. Quaint, country-like, and overflowing with rural hospitality, you cannot visit Sonoma without longing to bring some of its magic home with you.

You’re in luck. Because we know Tara Grodjesk, and Tara knows the secrets of Sonoma — from its hidden spas to the valley’s organic bounty, from the charms of its Spanish heritage to rustic retreats on quiet country lanes where bikes outnumber BMWs.

As the founder of Tara Spa Therapy, Tara introduced the ancient healing tradition of Ayurveda to the American spa industry. With 25 years devoted to health and fitness, we can think of no better person to translate Sonoma’s aura of wellness into a Shopping List for luxurious “self-care” that you’re going to love.
