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

devonf Oct 24, 2010 12:28 AM

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 lately....organic 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?

          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

            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!
