Sonoma and Napa counties have hundreds of wineries that have tasting rooms set among the golden hills of the area. It's rare to find a winery where you can enjoy this scenery as much as the wine served in the tasting room. At Chateau St. Jean, they have a large picnic area on their grounds that overlook expansive vineyards. My friends and I bought food and wine at the large tasting room/store and settled in for hours while the sun turned the hills and our faces golden.

Wine Tasting in Sonoma
Taking a day to do wine tasting in Sonoma is an excellent way to break up a city vacation to San Francisco for some peace and quiet, enjoying the beautiful scenery and having some delicious wine.
One of my favorite spots in Sonoma is Chateau St. Jean Winery because of their beautiful outdoor patio overlooking their garden and wine ranks.
