Saturday wine country brunch with view

I must be behind the times because I still can only think of Auberge Du Soleil when I think of a weekend brunch place with a view of vineyards. How about some more suggestions, from Carneros to Dry Creek Valley and all points in between. I definitely know about and love Fremont Diner, but want a more upscale place this time.

    Confused slightly, do you need Sonoma brunch recs or Napa?

      >do you need Sonoma brunch recs or Napa?<

      As I said, Carneros to Dry Creek Valley and all points in between which, to me, includes Napa Valley.

      I'm not sure you're behind the times, restaurants with vineyard views are pretty rare around here.

      Anybody ever eaten at River Rock Casino?

        Not yet, saving it for when I need a bowl of pho at midnight. :)

        I have been up there though and the view from the top of the garage is stunning.

        The patio at Brix is pretty picturesque and looks over their vineyards and gardens . . .

            Haven't tried it, but Corks at Russian River Vineyards serves brunch. I've been hearing good things from friends.

              Thanks for the Corks rec! However, plans changed and it will be Le Garage in Sausalito instead.
