2 days in Sonoma - planning advice sought

florwoman | Mar 23, 2011 01:05 PM

We are planning a two-day getaway to Sonoma and have a few things locked in but are looking for advice on restaurants and "must-visit" wineries.

Day 1 - we will drive up and have a 2:30 appointment at Merry Edwards (the last time I went there the office was in her garage!). Thinking of lunch at either Underwood or Willow Wood beforehand.

We then head to Healdsburg, where we are staying at the H2Hotel. We got their "Path to Pinot package, which includes dinner at Dry Creek Kitchen, a $50 certificate for lunch or dinner at Bovolo, and complimentary "enhanced" tastings at: Davis Family, Longboard, Thumbprint Cellars, and La Crema.

We are waitlisted for a tasting at Rafanelli (they may not have tastings that week), and are also considering Preston, Limerick Lane, Garry Farrell, and Quivira.

I think it's too ambitious and would love advice on which to visit and which to skip (I love free tastings but will trade better for free).

Also, need to decide where to eat on our second night. We are considering Zin or Baci - can't get into Cyrus - and would love to stick close by so we can indulge and walk back to the hotel.

Thanks very much.
