This past weekend, Rich and I ended up in Sonoma. It's one of our favorite places to go, and at only around a 40 minute drive from SF we also feel like we're being transported to a peaceful sunny place in no time at all.
We're members at Cline, which I think has some of the most delicious wine and everyone that works there is just so laid back and friendly. They don't do stuffy. Their property also has so much to explore... they have donkeys, a Mission museum, all kinds of birds, a pond with fish, beautiful gardens... this train even! It's really the best. We usually get sandwiches at Angelo's, bring them over to Cline and enjoy them with a glass of wine (or two) in the sun. I couldn't ask for much more than that. It's definitely our happy place.
We forgot our camera, but ended up taking these few shots with our iPhones while we were there.
