Three Days in Sonoma County


We met my brother Tom and his wife Ginger in Windsor for three days of wine-tasting and conversation. This is the overview of our three days in Sonoma County.

We discovered a  really good winery that was new to us: Williamson Wines. We finally got to visit Belden Barns. We first discovered them in 2014. We revisited several old favorites including the Spire Collection (Maggy Hawk, Windracer), Zichichi (reviewed by us in 2011), Balletto (reviewed in 2016), Chateau Montelena (reviewed in 2017), Siduri (reviewed more times than we can count), and Pech Merle (which we’ve been meaning to review, mentioned in our overview of the Family Winemakers Tasting).

And, as an added bonus, we discovered two great restaurants in Healdsburg.  Willi’s Seafood & Raw Bar does seafood (surprise). The Brass Rabbit occupies the space once used by Chez Ralph. Both offer outstanding food and excellent service.
