Earlier this year, I had shared with you that my website and writing were going to focus more on sensory experiences, rather than wine reviews. While I am still reviewing wines sent to me, my plan is still to move this website more toward what I love the most. First and foremost, I am a travel lover. I love visiting new places and experiencing local food and libations. My love of wine has only enhanced my love of getting out there, doing, and tasting instead of sitting at home with a bottle and a wine sample.
Therefore, I was very excited to learn of DolceVita Safari’s Sonoma Day Camp on Saturday, April 30, 2016, which includes a comprehensive itinerary of wine and food experiences packed into one fantastic day.
- The day starts at Tin Barn Vineyards at 10:00 am with a private winemaker tasting, including a vertical tasting of single-vineyard syrahs as well as barrel samples. We will learn about the importance of vineyard terroir in creating distinctive wines.
- Next is a private tour of the residence and farm of Stone Edge Farm Estate Vineyards and Winery, then we will move to their exclusive culinary home, Edge, for an amazing farm-to-table, three-course lunch created and led by Chef John McReynolds, paired with Stone Edge wines.
- If we have time, we will explore Sonoma Plaza for 30 minutes before heading to The Donum Estate where we will enjoy an educational walk through the vineyards to learn about where winemaking truly begins, as well as view the art on display throughout the property. The next stop will be their converted barn area for a sit-down tasting, then some free time to explore the property on our own and/or play a game of bocce ball.
There will be two transportation options: included transportation, where we will meet and conclude the day at Tin Barn Vineyards or from a central location in San Francisco.
Sonoma Day Camp is only three weeks away. There is very limited space for this experience so that it remains private and intimate, so I suggest purchasing your tickets ASAP to avoid disappointment. Tickets are available directly from DolceVita Safari. With promo code TWC, you will receive a 10% discount.
See you Saturday, April 30!
