Casual Wine Country Dining and Food Shopping with Kids

BobMack | Jul 13, 2012 07:16 PM

We are taking a two day trip to Sonoma/Napa area and have planned a couple meals for my wife and I and two kids (4 and 2).

We like Sonoma but had to stay in Napa because of a great deal. We eat early dinners around 5:30 - 6:00 and right now we just planned on going to Bistro Sabor and Gott's. Is there anything that is closer to fine dining type food but in a casual environment? I'm talking about a true family restaurant that serves good fresh food.

Also for lunch we'd like to go to Russian River Brewery or Lagunita's since I'm an avid beer drinker/homebrewer. Any opinions on these two for lunch with kids? Bad idea? Also any other great lunch ideas around Napa/Sonoma?

Lastly are there any great local products to keep an eye out for like honey, oil, cheese, etc? I know about the Rancho Gordo but what else should I keep my eyes open for? The more specific the better and also a great market that carries a bunch of them in one place would be perfect.
