Sonoma: Tasting rooms
Written by Rod Smith

Sonoma: Tasting rooms

Our rooms are welcoming, typically uncrowded, and have tastings from free to $20 at most. There are big stops, but they’re fun: Kendall-Jackson offers as much for heirloom-tomato geeks as wine snobs; Simi’s pizza cafe is reason enough to drop in. Or go outdoors with a hilltop tasting at Copain, or at rustic-chic Medlock Ames, where the action’s centered around the picnic table. Wish you were sitting in traffic? Didn’t think so.
