Meet Jerry & Tina Wolsborn, Owners

Jerry & Tina Wolsborn, Inn at Occidental OwnersDuring their years of running world-class hotels and other large hospitality businesses, Jerry and Tina Wolsborn dreamed of owning and operating a B&B. Throughout their marriage, the adventurous couple lived in Washington D.C., Denver, San Antonio, Dallas, Houston, Seattle, and even Maui and Oahu, Hawaii, but a bit of their hearts always remained in San Francisco, where they met.

In 1989, the Wolsborns returned to San Francisco, living there for almost eight years. Their love of the Bay area grew, as their daughters, Jen and Erin, developed important friendships. The idea of owning a bed and breakfast took root, and amongst the redwoods of Occidental the dream became reality. In June 2003, Jerry and Tina purchased Inn at Occidental. They invite you to come and visit at your home away from home in Sonoma wine country.

Oh, and during your stay, be sure to ask your hosts about some of the people they have had the honor to meet during their years in the hospitality business. Jerry and Tina have met royalty from several countries, Supreme Court Justices, every president of the United States from Richard Nixon to Bill Clinton, and even the most awe-inspiring, Mother Teresa.

We are proud that Inn at Occidental was recently profiled in these terrific publications:

◾Sactown Magazine, “Soaring Redwoods & Primo Pinot: Steal Away to the Russian River”

Vacation in Beautiful Sonoma County, California

SONOMA WINE COUNTRY – LOVELY AND DIVERSE…

Unspoiled pastoral countryside, dinner beside the California coast, and award-winning Sonoma Valley and Napa Valley wines – all in one county!

Sonoma County is the quintessential wine country — sophistication and class without the attitude and crowds. Here, rolling hills and peaceful country roads weave through family-owned vineyards as well as nationally known wineries. At 1,604 square miles, Sonoma County is much larger than neighboring Napa and offers more diverse activities to enjoy. Relaxed and personal, Sonoma lies closer to the sea and farther from the traffic.

The first home of wine production in Northern California, Sonoma County is also still the nation’s largest producer of quality wine. Distinct wine valleys dot the countryside — Russian River Valley, Alexander Valley, Dry Creek Valley, and the Valley of the Moon — each offering its own flavors and varietals, including many of the world’s best-known labels and appellations.

Most of Sonoma County’s 400+wineries are open to the public for tours and complimentary tastings.

Just an hour north of San Francisco, Sonoma Wine Country is an elegant, but unpretentious, vacation destination. The county’s unspoiled natural beauty — vineyards, towering old-growth redwoods, the Russian River, and the rugged California coastline — are just the beginning. A haven for artists, craftspeople, and chefs, Sonoma County offers so much more than exceptional wine. During your Sonoma Wine Country vacation, visit enjoy shopping in local art galleries, shops, and boutiques, pamper yourself with a massage or spa treatment, and experience some of the best dining in the country.
