Sonoma County’s Russian River winds it way across a large area, with lots of quality wineries. It’s always best to check tasting room opening times before you go. Here are my picks for great wineries within easy reach of Guerneville:
J Rochioli – “Best Pinot Noir in America” - Wine Spectator
Gary Farrell – Chardonnay “Wine of the Year” – Wine Enthusiast
Williams Selyem Winery – 90+ point Pinot Noir – Wine & Spirits
Moshin Vineyards – Great Burgundian style Pinot Noir
As mentioned already, Guerneville has, in recent years, become something of a ‘Foodie’ destination and there are more than a few good places to chow-down, such as:
Seaside Metal Oyster Bar – Fresh seafood and award winning wines
Big Bottom Market - Good for breakfast and sandwiches pick up a picnic lunch and a bottle of something delish for your kayak ride up river!
Boon eat + drink (owned by the Boon Hotel & Spa) – Seasonal, modern California bistro
There is so much more about Sonoma County to share. Dry Creek wineries and the iconic California Zinfandel made there are some of the best. Heading toward the sea, Timber Cove in Jenner is a fabulously romantic beach hotel. Then there is the backdrop for the Hitchcock movie The Birds in Bodega Bay, sweet and stunningly beautiful, but I’ll let you discover the rest for yourselves. Have a great time!
