Locals please help!! Having to be budget-minded while in the area for a trip this September, we still want the best food experience possible. Sun-Tues will be downtown near the Wharf. Tues-Thu will be in Sonoma and Thu-Sun will be in Napa.
A few Splurges are planned, but we need to keep the costs down where we can. I've read so many posts that my head hurts! I know opinions vary, but I would welcome hearing what you locals think the Dream list is...the "must go/can't miss" places and the best deals /experience places as well.
We are planning on some winery tastings and/or tours and appreciate input on those. Our past favorite winery experience was Deerfield Ranch - tasting at their home/winery. We prefer unique experiences or just simply out of this world wines (Freebies don't hurt either!).
Here's the short list so far:
Long Meadow Ranch - Olive Oil/Wine Tasting
Jarvis Winery (Splurge - the couple travelling with us has already planned this one)
THANKS for your help!
