Jenn Thornton | January 29, 2019 | Story Now In

1. Buckle Up
Take the wheel of a smooth ride—from an exotic sports car to a restored classic—and hit the road for the Quail Moto Rally Experience. All routes are high-speed, but the Coastal Gourmet Rally is a can’t-miss detour down Highway 1 to beautiful Big Sur for a three-course luncheon at stunning Post Ranch Inn. $380 per person

2. Eat Your Heart Out
At Bernardus Lodge & Spa, Lucia Restaurant & Bar offers a seductive Valentine’s Day dinner. The prix fixe menu includes selections from Alder smoked salmon and Hudson Valley foie 3gras to Oak Grilled prime beef fillet and a few sweet finishes. From $125

3. Go Green
Join the in crowd at the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am (Feb. 4-10). A VIP Experience offers rooms at the Inn at Spanish Bay, tourney tickets, a personal concierge and much more. $15,000, 831.649.1533

4. Pour It On
Indulge the tasting rooms of Hahn Family Wines, Scratch Wines, Albatross Ridge and Caraccioli Cellars. The latter hosts occasional library tastings on Saturday and Sunday with special reserve wines. Salut! $25-$35

5. Write On
Browse Bittner Fine Pens for the sterling Imperium Romanum. Pen of the Year for 2018, the total takes its cues from ancient Rome and brings its exceptional style to Bittner, which trades in a bevy of world-class brands. From $3,600-$5,100
