Even if you don't love wine, you'll love Sonoma.
It's a beautiful, laid-back area where people appreciate good company, good food, and of course, good wine. The town center is oriented around The Plaza, which is a park lined with shops, cafes, and restaurants. We spent most of our time at the vineyards.
We first visited Gundlach-Bundschu, a mid-sized winery. The wine tasting was well-done and we learned a bit about the company, their vintages and vineyards. Most important, we learned about Chris Loxton.
