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
The girl of the girl & the fig is whirlwind Sondra Bernstein, who shocked Sonoma more than 10 years ago with her tiny, Cab-free restaurant on the ground floor of the Sonoma Hotel. You won’t even find Chardonnay ― just Rhône wines (many locally grown and made) and a gutsy southern French menu fashioned out of the county's bounty. A new addition to Bernstein’s empire, The Fig Pantry, is a few blocks away, next door to her Les Petites Maisons cottages.
