Out country folks are heading to Sonoma County this weekend and plan to hit wineries in Russian River Valley, Alexander Valley, Dry Creek Valley and Sonoma County - time permitting. Budgeting to hit $30 -$40, reds and whites. So far have Joseph Swan, Hartford, De Loach, Porter Creek, Merry Edwards, Chasseur, Frie Brothers, Kenwood as picks. We need to do some route mapping so would appreciate any assistance to hit some real gems from these wine regions. Ideally boutique / low volume producers that take appointments and wines that typically we cannot get up here in Canada. Also are there any vintages, from this region, say in the last 5 years that flopped? Thinking any year that suffered due to weather / poor soil conditions / disease.
