A friend is visiting the last weekend of OCtober and has never been here before. We're planning on taking him up to Sonoma as part of the wine country tour. Though I've done a search and have gotten many ideas for dining (Mariposa has been on the list but now Tastings in Healdsburg has me interested), I wanted to get some additional must-sees for the wineries.
We're going to be starting out our day with a picnic at KJ b/c I want to tour the culinary garden. We're also planning to hit A.Rafanelli in Dry Creek at the end of the day. We wanted to go to Chalk HIll but they're closed on the weekends and we can't make the 10AM Jordan tour. Are there any "You've got to try this vineyard" type of recommendations I can solicit from the hounds to fill in the rest of the itinerary?
