Audi on Demand
Any one of you San Francisco readers will be thrilled to learn about a new service, currently available only in San Francisco, called Audi on Demand. Essentially it’s a luxurious rental car service offered directly through Audi for residents of San Francisco. So, how does it work? Read below for full details.
The beautiful yet sleek, modern and sporty interior design. You really had everything you needed on the steering wheel which made it super as a driver to focus on the road and also adjust music, place a call and have most everything you needed at your steering wheel fingertips or on the consul showing the speed and driving mode.
The interior of the car was just as beautiful as the exterior. The doors are lined in this suede, stunning camel color. The Audi design team really nailed it with this car. The speakers are Bang & Olufsen and is incredible even with the top down on a the windy 101. I was extremely impressed with the quality of the phone system (also with the top down). I was making calls from the highway with no problem hearing and an over all amazing call experience.
The “Virtual cockpit,” as Anders described it during my orientation training. This cockpit is incredible. Your iPhone can also connect via Bluetooth so you can see when you have new messages (which are read to you out loud by the car, not by the driver driving). You are not able to reply back (thank god, what a great safety feature), but you can access your texts, emails, music, and other apps through your IPhone or other blue tooth device. Incredible!!
After my orientation and being left along with the car, I was ready to take it for a cruise. First stop was a little drive around the city. It was super fun driving around in a convertible in 80 degree weather. I felt like a kid at a toy store, I was enjoying this that much! Thanks again Audi for this amazing car and sharing the Audi on Demand experience with me!
I made a quick stop at The Battery SF before heading out of town.
Crossing the Golden Gate Bridge and having so much fun driving. I think I may have been a race car driver in a former life. I just really enjoy driving fast, luxurious cars!
A mandatory stop as I departed San Francisco for wine country at the look-out point. I really scored on this parking spot with the perfect Golden Gate Bridge backdrop.
Cruising around Healdsburg in this sporty car. As someone who really enjoys driving, this car was incredible. It really handled the road well, without slipping or losing traction on some of the curvier turns. I loved how smoothly it drove and the fun convertible aspect of the Audi Roadster TT.
During my weekend in Wine Country, I visited Lambert Bridge Winery and enjoyed a delicious Food & Wine pairing (don’t worry, when you are a wine writer you spit during these experiences so there is no drinking and driving) with Lambert Bridge Wines & Spoonbar eats. It was fabulous. More to come on the blog about this curated culinary and wine tasting experience.
Hats off to a lovely day in Healdsburg and my incredible Audi on Demand experience. In case you can not tell, I LOVE this service and will be using this a lot more in the future! You should too, try it and use code JF20 to save 20% off your rental through the end of 2017.
I spent Saturday exploring Tomales Bay and enjoying stunning views and a bite at Nick’s Cove. If you’re not familiar with this gem, I recommend you visit and check it out. Read more about Nick’s Cove here.
Relaxing with stunning bay views, enjoying an iced team and playing some cards. What a heavenly way to spend a Saturday in California!
Sunday’s itinerary began in Carneros at Viansa Winery followed by Oysters and Wine at B.R. Cohn in Sonoma.
The beautiful lookout point at Viansa I enjoyed with a Food & Wine pairing taking in these incredible views. More to come on the blog soon sharing this Viansa Tasting experience.
Another stop at B.R. Cohn Winery in Sonoma
My last stop on the itinerary was Monday’s visit to Napa. This was taken at the beautiful Donum Estate. This is truly spectacular with stunning art, lovely wines and an amazing team. Stay tuned for my upcoming post on Donum Estate on the blog.
