Going to Sonoma

Original post by Gregory Dal Piaz, Jun 23, 2009.

I'll be in Sonoma for a few days in August of this month and while much of my schedule has been set I was hoping, at the suggestion dmcker, to accumulate valuable information such as we've done for Napa.

So who has the goods on Sonoma?

Just to begin I'll be staying at the Best Western right in Sonoma, good rates, a nice property and walking distance to central Sonoma.



Let's hear it all!

As I said, the engineers liked the Madrona. The executive suite, Vintner's Inn. Me? I'd rather be out on the coast most of the time...

The Fig Cafe in Glen Ellen is very tasty and doesn't charge corkage for brought bottles.  Within walking distance of the Jack London Lodge and Saloon (where they filmed the bar scenes for 'Bottle Shock') if you feel like a palate cleansing beer.  I haven't hit many Sonoma wineries, but Benziger is nice.  I enjoyed my tasting there.

I hear Chateau St Jean is good.  Kunde perhaps?  Gundlach-Bundschu is also a good choice if you venture down toward Carneros.  Enjoy and be sure to keep us posted on your doings and tastings!

As a long time Sonoma wine County resident, I thought 97mjr had a very thoughtful, comprehensive list for you.

For wines by the glass, I like the boutique (8) winery co-op in Santa Rosa's Railroad Square, Cellars of Sonoma.
