Best places to travel in January

Come hungry to Sonoma Valley this January, as it’s staging Sonoma Valley Delicious all month (pandemic protocols permitting), a celebration of food and drink across the low-key, high-quality winemaking region. Try to snag one of the nine rooms, all newly refurbished, at the Cottage Inn & Spa—the whitewashed, vine-covered building has more than a whiff of the Greek Islands about it, especially in the interior courtyard centered around a fire pit and fountain. Expect restaurants to offer special prix fixe menus, wine tastings, and new signature dishes, all intended to spotlight the superb produce of the valley; one exciting new opening is Folktable, from Top Chef alum Casey Thompson.
