Final Day in Sonoma Valley
St. Francis Winery & Vineyards
Well known for their award winning restaurant (no reservations for us…Rats!), St. Francis Winery has an organic garden – veggies served in their restaurant, delicious, affordable wines & knowledgeable, fun servers behind the bar pouring wines. DH joined their wine club last year & we have not been disappointed.
The grounds are beautiful, the tasting room – love the ceiling!
We met a woman from Brentwood, TN who was vacationing with her friends from Michigan. We encouraged her to take them to Arrington Vineyards since they were going home with her after their California trip. (Tennessee grapes making excellent dry red wines!)
Kunde Family Estate
Five generations of the Kunde Family have been making wine on this estate for over 100 years. We enjoyed our tasting on the patio with a snack to serve as lunch.
After the cheese & meats they served a Port-style red with a sweet chocolate that smelled like a chocolate Easter bunny. Yum!
I joined this wine club.
Inman Family Wines
Our last stop was Inman, a very small winery & one of our favorites. Kathleen Inman, the wine maker served our tasting – try to get that at any other winery in Napa, Sonoma or middle Tennessee! She’s just a normal person who loves her work, whose work is making excellent wine!
We shipped a few bottles home, but no wine club this time…yet.
