  1. For a brewery, I highly recommned Third Street Aleworks. They have okay food but their beer is excellent. The brewmaster, I think Randy is his name, has been making beers for over 25 years and is one of the most top rated brewers in the country.

    1. Foppiano is well known for their petite sirah.

      Check out their Petite Sirah Library:

      1. Ridge, and not just for their Petite Sirah.

        I'd look up Kokomo while you are out there - they are smaller outfit not a lot of people have heard of, doing some nice things.

          I'll add in Preston, which is a nice experience overall, and David Coffaro which is a very laid-back, taste in a shack kind of place. With couches and a big screen TV. Don't be fooled, David makes some very, very good wines, and some which are just 'interesting'. You won't be bored.

        2. Unti Vineyards. Tasting by appt. 707-433-5590 from 10am to 4pm 7 days-a-week.
