SONOMA COAST FOOD & WINE TOUR
This is an opportunity for guests enjoy the agricultural variety of the San Francisco Bay.
You will be picked from your residence, and will cross the Golden Gate Bridge.
Just 20 minutes beyond, you will first journey west along the Marin Cheese Trail, tasting delicious French and Swiss style cheeses harboring from the unique climate zone, as well as mead honey products from Petaluma (pending availability).
Next, you will visit Cowgirl Creamery and cheese shop located at Tomales Bay Foods, a former hay barn restored in picturesque Point Reyes Station. The cheesemongers behind the counter will help you find, taste, pair and purchase to-die-for cheeses from America and Europe. Take a gander around the barn and you’ll find The Cowgirl Cantina, a take-away deli offering delightful local breads, wines, sandwiches and salads.(closed on Monday-Tuesday).
Our next stop is Heidrun Meadery which produces local honey as well as imports multiple honey types from different parts of the world. You can taste honey as well as 8 types of Mead, wine made from honey. Heidrun Meadery is the only place in the world to produce naturally sparkling varietal meads using the traditional French Méthode Champenoise. Their Champagne-style of mead is light, dry, delicate and refreshing, with subtle exotic aromas and flavors found only in the essence of honey.
Then venture to the foggy coast of Highway 1 to enjoy fresh out of water oysters from the famous Marshall Oyster Store, served with delicious clam chowder, smoked salmon and white wine. It’s one of the 30 best seafood restaurants in the country (not included in the price; expect $25-30).
Your next stop will be Wild Flour Bakery for sourdough bread and pies from the wood-fired brick oven (open Friday-Monday).
We will spend the remainder of the day visiting a couple of wineries in the Russian River Valley (tasting fees not included).
