Birthday dinner in Sonoma, in a vineyard, farm-to-table, for a foodie?

I have a friend whose birthday is coming up, and she's a real foodie. She loves Sonoma....I just really envisioned some sort of outdoor dinner for her amongst the vines....rain permitting. I have seen so many of these farm-to-table dinners happen ingredients, or at least raised locally.

Anyone have any great experiences? Where can I find out about something like this? Maybe there's a new pop-up restaurant?

    1. Dicey planning an outdoor meal this time of year.

      Vinyards Inn is surrounded by vineyards, though I don't you can see them from the dining room.

        I think this is the best idea. I don't think you'll find any dinners outside in the vineyards in November -- not only is it potentially cold and wet, but it's dark by dinner time in November!

      2. Go to this site and click on the road map on left for area you are interested in
        then click on a winery and go to events on the winery website . There are dozens and dozens of winery dinners all the time.
        Also some listed here
        just check month you are interested in
        Have a great celebration

        1. Not out of doors at this time of year, but what about:

          October 28 & 29
          tendejon de la calle
          428 hudson st. winery, healdsburg
          dinner 6-8 pm, cash or check
          rsvp @ 707.623.5474

          1. thanks, all! yes, i guess the time of year isn't the best for this....but i definitely have heard about the popup in healdsburg. has anyone tried it?
