Sharon and Janie took a limo to Sonoma to celebrate Janie's birthday. Their first stop was a private tasting at the Etude Winery. They were the only ones at the tasting and enjoyed it immensely; the wine was good and the staff friendly and well informed.
Afterwards, they stopped at Schug. Sharon was disappointed with this stop. They were working on the small tasting room [e.g. drilling in the wall!]. Additionally, the staff did not know anything about the wines.
They had lunch at the girl & the fig in Sonoma. We had tried to get into there for dinner a couple of years ago. Sharon enjoyed the food, but was not impressed with the service either from the hostess or the waiter.
After spending some time shopping in Sonoma, they made one more stop at Chateau St. Jean north of Sonoma before winding their way home.
