On my recent trip to San Francisco, we took a quick day trip to Sonoma Valley. Only about an hour away, unreal. I need to spend a month there, and slowly make my way through every vineyard in Napa and Sonoma. Also stopping at great farms, eating local cheeses, fruits and veggies. I did not spend enough time here! I will be back as soon as I can. We visited Iron Horse Winery and Gary Farrell. Tasted some delicious sparklings and roses from Iron Horse and drank the best Pinot's around at Gary Farrell. It's always great putting a vineyard to the wines you have been selling or drinking your whole life.
Sonoma Valley is totally gorgeous. Set inside the valley are rows of vines, large rolling hills and wineries scattered along the steep terrains. Surrounded by dense forestry of red woods and wild berries growing along the roads. The scent of wildflowers in the breeze. The Russian River following through the heart of it. What's not to love? I will be back people, I will.
