Culinary travel in the West

The very best destinations, trips, and dining experiences for foodies

Taste the West: Sonoma County

Visit this laid-back land of vineyard-rich valleys, from Sonoma to Dry Creek to Alexander, for fresh, organic cuisine, a thriving farm community—and a distinctly non-Napa vibe

A shed for locavores

A shed for locavores

Belly up to the Fermentation Bar at the Healdsburg Shed, Sonoma’s locavore answer to Napa’s Dean & DeLuca, and you know you’re in a unique spot. Bright-colored fruit infusions steep in beakers, and bacteria and grains ferment in jars, waiting to be alchemized into nose-tickling kombuchas. Try a glass, then browse Shed for local fruits, charcturerie, and breads made from the store’s freshly milled wheat.
