Working Farm in Sonoma
This is a bonafide working farm and to me, it really just screams "Sonoma!" Our local friends wanted to stop by here to fill up their jug with the special house wine (apparently every Sunday) and to get some fresh bread. The wine is whatever the house has in their big vats and it costs around $35 to load up a big old jug of it.
I see why it's such a hit! You follow a shaded dirt road for a few minutes down to a cute little farmhouse. Picture charming wicker furniture in various states of decay on the front porch and old screen doors to keep the flies out. Even an overall-clad old timer was sitting at what appeared to be the kitchen table enjoying a cup of coffee. It was like stepping into a real life movie scene of farmland Americana.
There's a very tiny little market with fresh fruit, vegetables and eggs direct from the farm. On the day of my visit, a small basket of strawberries cost $4.00, kale and chard was $3.00 per pound, and carrots were $2.00 a bunch. You pick out your goodies, weigh and pay, all on the honor system (bring cash). There's a small market with fresh baked bread and olive oil made on the premises (minus a star for the exorbitant prices -- $40 for a small bottle of olive oil? What's in the bottle, gold?).
A wine bar with all organic wines offers a down home tasting experience.
There are several picnic tables and a few farm cats who seemed to enjoy mingling with the picnic crowds. While not particularly scenic, it's a good place to check out if you want to get a true farm experience. The area reminded me of my grandma's backyard -- very homey and comfortable.
Note that they have a sign that explicitly states that groups of 8 or more are not welcome, so leave your friends at home (or either split up and enter in separate groups).
As you can see, we stopped off at quite a few wineries. This one is on short dirt road that winds around the vineyards until you get to the tasting room. They have a small picnic area that you can use. Some of the wines are great. I bought a couple bottles to bring home.
Opened daily 11am-4:30pm.
