Tasting along the Wine Road in Sonoma

We spent the weekend up in Sonoma and participated in the 9th Annual Wine and Food Affair. Of all the visits that we have made so far this year, this one had to be the most scenic. Sonoma offers many different varietals and the land is very hilly, so the contrasts and colors and forms (combined with the beautiful weather) was something to be experienced. Glad we were able to go! On Saturday, we visited:
  1. Arista - The most beautiful place we visited
  2. Hanna
  3. Alexander Valley Vineyards - Bought a 2004 Syrah
  4. White Oak - Picked up two of their 2004 Napa Valley cabs
  5. Simi - Bought a 2003 Landslide Cab, a 2006 Late Harvest Chardonnay and a 2005 Late Harvest Zinfandel
  6. Bella
  7. Zichichi
  8. Gopfrich - Picked up a 2005 Estate Cuvee
