Events at Osmosis & in the Community 

Destination Freestone

The village with a rich history has only gotten tastier

Sunday, October 19th, 10:00am - 4:00pm

Bread, wine, cheese, and a healing Japanese therapy—the Cedar Enzyme Bath—make Sonoma County’s Freestone, the California fermentation destination. Come celebrate a renewed artisan food culture in one of wine country’s most distinct small towns on Sunday, October 19.

The village of Freestone is Sonoma Counties first historic district and is emerging as a must-visit destination for anyone in search of the secret treasures of Northern California. The six-acre Osmosis Day Spa Sanctuary, with its authentic Japanese gardens, has been a major destination for in-the-know travelers for 25 years. It’s been joined by a distinct artisanal food and fermentation culture in Freestone that has attracted thousands of weekend visitors in search of organic loaves and cinnamon buns, artisan local cheeses, and a taste of some of the best wine in the region.
