If life is all about experiences, then leave it to IfOnly to make them come true.  The online marketplace founded by tech entrepreneur, Trevor Traina, offers incredible experiences in food and wine, sports, music, entertainment, fashion, travel, and more that many of us couldn’t even dream of.

When it comes to California dreaming, no imagination is too big. Wouldn’t it be nice to spend a day in Sonoma taking in the grounds of Sonoma’s newest winery, followed by a private barrel tasting and lunch under the backdrop of the Mayacama Mountains?

Well, it’s real.  Hamel Family Wines and IfOnly have joined forces to offer an IfOnly member and seven friends preferred access to the Hamel Family Winery. The day will include an exclusive tasting tour with a behind-the-scenes peek into the making of world-class wines from this historic estate.  Guests will be able to taste new wines before they’re bottled and take a sip from library selections of past vintages.

After the tour, guests are invited to explore the gorgeous 124-acre property at their leisure before a enjoying a gourmet linen bag lunch prepared by the winery’s executive chef Clinton Huntsman. Just imagine, you can soak up the sun while overlooking a grove of 100-year old olive trees and the beautiful Mayacamas Mountain range. At the end of the day, no one leaves without a piece of Sonoma because each guest will return home with two bottles of wine.

This experience not only provides an exclusive opportunity to learn the art of winemaking and tasting from leaders of the industry, but proceeds from the purchase will also benefit the local chairty F.I.S.H. of Sonoma.
