1345 Henry Rd, Napa, CA 94559, USA
Napa, Sonoma, and Yountville mean endless miles of deliciousness! Schramsberg specializes in a vast selection of the sparkling wines fit for the White House. (Seriously. It's served at the White House.) The tasting was amazing, as was the tour of...
151 Petaluma Blvd S, Petaluma, CA 94952, USA
We stayed in Petaluma so we could be close to the Sonoma wineries but not have to spend $300 a night for a hotel. We were thrilled to stumble upon Rosso Pizzeria and Mozzarella Bar. The chef makes his own fresh mozzarella in house, and the burrata...

353 Healdsburg Ave, Healdsburg, CA 95448, USA
The Healdsburg downtown is beautiful, but can feel a little repetitive - gorgeous tasting room, local art gallery, gourmet restaurant ... repeat. The One World Fair Trade store is very different - it's a global department store of jewelry pottery,...
1170 Tubbs Ln, Calistoga, CA 94515, USA
When I go to Napa Valley, I like to experience smaller wineries, from the tasting rooms of Napa to the small roadside wineries of the Silverado Trail. Envy Wines, just north of Calistoga at the very northernmost part of Napa Valley, is a great...

Bennett Lane is one of several small, homey wineries that lie just outside the funky spa town of Calistoga, California. It is the last winery in Napa Valley, meaning that it is the furthest north. It's worth a stop, though, for a couple of...

My friends and I have made it an annual habit to taste our way through the wine regions of Dry Creek and Alexander Valley during "Winter WineLand". The Wine Road has three annual weekend events that connect wineries around Sonoma County for one...

Brouwersgracht 125, 1015 GE Amsterdam, Netherlands
It may not look like much and there's certainly no need to dress up. But despite its humble appearance on the posh Brouwersgracht, Swieti Sranang serves up some of the best—and most affordable—Indonesian and Surinamese food in town. Owned by Henk...

Stop at Scribe Winery and pick up a bottle of their newly released rosé to pair with oysters at Hog Island in Marshall, CA. Picnic tables overlook Tomales Bay and must be reserved in advance. Throw the oysters on the grill or eat them raw and don’...
