I turn to my trusty chowhounds for help in this hardy adventure. Think 8-10 women in their latest 20's (organic farmers, teachers, chefs, aspiring doctors) who like to eat and drink, and can get a bit wild. Out for a day of wine tasting in Sonoma Valley to celebrate with the bride to be.
We'd like to go to 3-4 wineries, preferable if they have some sort of attention to organic or bio-dynamic growing practices, and also have some affordable wines (under $20). I think staying in Sonoma Valley is a good idea, so we are not spending a whole lot of time driving around.
Now, I'm really starting to get into wine, so I'd like to take this as any opportunity to learn more about it. Also any suggestions for a place to grab a bite to eat would be good, a market with goodies for takeout? Thanks for your help and I promise to report back on the debauchery - I mean wine tasting.
