Hats off to Amanda for setting up an amazing day in Sonoma. On my many trips to San Francisco over the past 4 years, I’ve
had the opportunity to experience Napa twice – once in 2010 with Aaron and Monica and last August with a bunch of coworkers. Sonoma lacked the ‘pomp and circumstance’ of Napa, but had all of the beauty, taste and charm required to make the day go by smoothly. I had a great time — and figured I might as well ease of up on the diet since I would be having wine all day and managed to fit in a burger when we stopped off for lunch at Barndiva. Of all the places we hit, my heart and tastebuds remained at Chalk Hill – the atmosphere, buttery chardonnay, bold syrah — great way to kick off the day. I have to also give a nod to Williamson; their wines, when paired are second to none. Looking forward to my next trip to Sonoma. For now, enjoy the photos!
