Our birthdays kicked off in Sonoma. Stephen and I love Sonoma so much that we try to come out 2-3 times a year for some rest and relaxing. We knew there was no better way to celebrate our birthdays, and the best part was having some of our closest friends come out for amazing food, wine, and a good time!
WHERE WE STAYED:
Grape Leaf Inn – One of our favorites places to stay in Sonoma. They are an excellent bed and breakfast with a chef prepared breakfast as well as a wine and cheese hour. It’s pretty centrally located to all the wineries and dinners.
WERE WE ATE:
Bubble Room – Stephen and I are wine club members at J Winery. We always make it a point to come to the Bubble Room every trip. It is such an elegant experience with the amazing wine and food pairing.
Bravas Bar de Tapas – The best tapas in Sonoma hands down. Make sure to check out the patio out back.
Campo Fina – I think I could eat the salads at Campo Fina every week. So good! It’s the perfect place if you are looking for a casual lunch spot with amazing food.
Valette – Let me just say you need to try the scallop en croute. The presentation and taste is everything. The scallops are served in a pot with a puffy dome pastry!
WHERE WE WINED:
Viszlay Winery – This is a boutique winery where you won’t find it in stores. They only sell direct. The Five Vines wine is so good!
J Winery – You can always fine a Bowtie Vineyard Pinot Noir in our wine fridge from J Winery. It’s one of the best pinots out there. Such an interesting take on this grape.
Soda Rock – If you are a fan of white wines I highly recommend you coming here! The Sauvignon Blanc has been my favorite wine this summer.
Silver Oak Winery – This winery is worth going for the experience alone. They make some amazing Cabs for all you red lovers out there!
