Sonoma County Wines
A big thanks to Cherie and Scott for hosting a great night! They opened up the field to any wine from Sonoma County. Grapes were planted in Sonoma as early as 1812 and by 1832 the Spanish Franciscan fathers had planted several thousand vines. We had lots of wines to pick from as Sonoma produces Barbera, Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Chenin blanc, Gamay noir, Malbec, Merlot, Muscat, Petite Sirah, Pinot gris, Pinot noir, Zinfandel, and many other grapes. We had a few wines we knew and some we had forgotten and fell in love with again, but everyone came away with at least one new one for their collections.
