the #1 most romantic thing to do in sonoma this year: propose


There are simply so many romantic things to do in Sonoma. Millions flock to the bucolic Sonoma Valley to spend precious, intimate moments with their significant others over a gourmet dinner, a glass of fine wine, and a stroll through a vineyard. It’s no wonder our wine country is a preferred destination to “pop the question”. There are a handful of exquisite and celebrated restaurants throughout the Valley that are no short of perfect for getting on one knee and confessing your unwavering love. However, if you’re looking for something more exclusive and unique, know that there are myriad options. Here at Goodness Gracious! Private Chef and Catering we know that first impressions and detail are important to every client. We are the best Sonoma private chef company to cater your proposal dinner.

Planning A Trip to Wine Country?

If you’re ready for the plunge, or just planning an epic vacation to Sonoma Valley for a getaway you won’t forget, consider booking one of the hundreds of luxurious rental homes you can find online rather than a hotel or inn. If you’re traveling with a group, look through our page to explore the many culinary experiences we have to offer. There is something for every occasion.

Our List of Very Romantic Sonoma Proposal Ideas:

  • Hire a Private Chef to come to your AirBnb, VRBO, or other rental property to prepare a gourmet, multi-course dinner complete with candles, roses, and a bottle of champagne. Goodness Gracious! Catering offers a Candlelit Dinner for Two package that is probably the most romantic thing ever.

  • There aren’t any tasting rooms that advertise private after-hours access, but if you ask, you might receive. It isn’t uncommon for one of the smaller, boutique tasting rooms to rent out the space for an hour or two for you to sip on wine, dim the lights, and put on some soft, soothing music. I would check out Lake Sonoma Winery, Chappelet Tasting Room, Rancho Maria Winery, and certainly any wineries you may be a club member of. Book a cheeseboard or dessert plate with Goodness Gracious! Catering to be delivered.

  • Most wineries don’t have signage or paths into the actual vineyards, but that doesn’t mean you can’t go explore! Grab their hand, jump off the main premises, and run to a spot where no one can find you. Hurry though- you could get caught!

  • To locals, the Sonoma Valley is also known for stunning hiking and parks. You can hike to the top of Sugarloaf Mountain in Kenwood where you get a 360 degree view of Sonoma Valley, Napa Valley, and even see the Golden Gate Bridge! Also recommended are the Montini Trail in the town of Sonoma, Mt. Hood near Oakmont, and the Sonoma Valley Regional Park in Glen Ellen.

  • Very romantic (and delicious!) restaurants perfect for popping the question:
