Sonoma Visitor's Bureau
Kendall Jackson - I was most impressed with the gardens. While we were wondering through their expansive gardens, the chef had come out to clip out some fresh herbs.
Seghesio - We are big fans of Seghesio. The grounds are pretty unassuming compared to others, however the people are friendly, there's a bocce ball court outside and the wine is fantastic. We especially love the Rock Pile Zinfandel.
Ferrari-Carano - One of the most beautiful grounds of any winery we've ever been to. You feel transported to Italy, and they have roaming chickens! What's not to love?!? Chickens!
St. Francis - St. Francis Cab is one of our favorite wines to keep on hand. We love the grounds, such a pretty spot to stop on a sunny afternoon.
Ravenswood - A bit off the beaten path, however if you are in the city of Sonoma having lunch, this one is a great spot to go, as it is a very short drive from the square. The people at Ravenswood can't be beat. We had a great time when we stopped there.
Chateau St. Jean - So gorgeous. Be sure to try the wines in the reserve room. The Cinq Cepages is our favorite. A bit expensive, but absolutely fabulous. We like to buy a bottle and grab a few sandwiches from their Charcuterie and sit outside at a table in their gardens and enjoy an afternoon with friends and good wine.
Kenwood - Super laid back with awesome wine. This is one of those wineries that you go to for the wine, not the estate as it's a pretty unassuming tasting room. Kenwood's Jack London Zinfandel is one of our favorites to drink on a warm summer day.
