Hi Chowhounds...This is my first time on here and I have great one for you all!
I am planning on proposing to my girlfriend in a couple weeks (eek!) and am planning on a day trip to either Sonoma or Napa (we live in Oakland) for picnicking, wine tasting, and returning to San Francisco for dinner.
I read some of the previous posts for Napa proposal spots, so I have a few ideas, but none jumped out at me. Most were a bit far for a day trip, or would likely be crowded on the weekend. My girlfriend and I prefer the Sonoma area to Napa, so i hope someone has a suggestion for that area. A winery south of Glen Ellen with a nice view of the region would be ideal. I am also looking for a place that is either by appointment only or has large grounds, so that I could organize some private time without people around. Alternatively, does anyone know of wineries that have accommodated a private occasion such as this before in the Sonoma area?
