Enotrias AirBnB

Because of the amazing hospitality I have received around the world on various wine trips by staying with AirBnB hosts, I have created a space for those throughout the industry visiting the Bay Area.
Private and tranquil spaces in beautiful and safe historic Oakland neighborhood, 15 minutes from OAK airport, complete with signature breakfast dishes created from the organic home garden, thoughtful details,
and of course, at least a glass of sommelier selected wine.

What to do when you Visit Oakland...

These are some of my favorite places and things to do around home. I might even run into you along the way!

What to Do

Where to Go

  • The Coast Loop: Take 92 to Half Moon Bay, and stop at Sam's or The Ritz Carlton and have a glass of something fantastic while overlooking the ocean or listening to the bagpipes at sunset (do the loop in reverse).  Grab local produce, dry goods, or a pie at Pie Ranch. Tour and taste the fresh goat cheese at Harley Farms. Check out Costanoa. Stop at any of the beaches (bring a blanket, GoVinos, the munchies you've picked up along the way, and a bottle of screwtop wine). Finish the day at the nostalgic Beach Boardwalk or grab a glass of wine and a bite at  Soif. Drive safe on the beautiful, curvy Highway 17 back into the real world. 

  • Tour Marin: Drive out to the Green Gulch Zen Center for morning meditation. Stop for coffee and pastries at Parkside in Stinson Beach, then drive to Hog Island for the best, freshest, hand shucked oysters and bubbly at their iconic farm.  And you can't skip The Marshall Store for barbecued oysters. They are the best. There are great trails and backroads to explore on the way back.
