We got somewhat carried away with downtown Sonoma. Not only did we enjoy wandering all the stores, boutiques, candy stores. The Sonoma Cheese Factory and Tiddle E. Winks were our favorite. We wish the tri-tip sandwich at Sonoma Cheese Factory was not sold out, because it would have been a great addition to our picnic in the late afternoon.
We finally made it to our first winery Gundlach Bundschu and it was by far our favorite for the gorgeous scenery, outdoor space and tasting room. The wines were bottles we plan on drinking.
We tasted 7 wines and the Vintage Reserve and our favorite wines were the Zinfandel, and blueberry notes from the Spanish style Tempranillo and Pinot Noir.
We stopped by B.R. Cohn Winery and Olive Oil Company, enjoyed the vintage car scuptures from local artist, Patrick Amiot and were impressed by the balsamic vinegars and olive oils, even more than the wine.
