DOWNTOWN SONOMA

This is the site of the bear flag revolt I talk about in the start of the episode. The quaint little shops and tasting rooms in Sonoma downtown make a great jumping off point for your trip! If you're driving from SF, it's the first major town in Sonoma County you'll hit, and you can grab lunch before heading off to taste!

DOWNTOWN HEALDSBURG

This is where I meet with Karissa and chat. One of the best restaurant hubs in Sonoma County, this would be a good place to put your hotel so you can go exploring and end your day somewhere with a lot of food and shop options.

BUCHER WINES

The Bucher's have been selling fruit to some of the best producers in Sonoma County for years. It's a treat to drink this same fruit in the Bucher's own personal label. Their tasting room is actually Windsor, which is separate from the farm itself.

BELTANE RANCH

If you want to stay somewhere with some character, charm, and the nicest people imaginable, I'd highly recommend staying at Beltane Ranch!
