On holiday in Northern California this February, a friend and I decided to drive up to Sonoma Valley one afternoon with the intention of perhaps spending a day or 2 in the area. We drove from Fremont straight to Ram’s Gate Winery on Arnold Drive Sonoma (got there just in time for the last tasting service) and onwards to the quaint MacAurther’s Place for the night.
Day 2, we drove to Duckhorn Vineyards in St Helena, the Culinary Institute of America at Greystone for lunch, Kendall Jackson Wine Estates for their last tasting service and finally to Gaige House for the night.
The next morning we took the scenic route back to San Francisco stopping at Tomales Bay for lunch (Read: Tomales Bay. California).
