Traveling to Sonoma with Sadie & Daisy: Part Three
We had a lovely visit to Chateau St. Jean Winery with their beautiful gardens and outdoor sitting areas. It’s the perfect place to take pictures or just take in the beauty of the place. If you can visit on a Friday, it will help you to avoid the crowds.
Ledson Winery was also one of our stops because I had to see “The Castle.” I was in it for “The Castle” but I actually really liked their wine. If you end up there at lunchtime or you need a little snack, they have a shop/marketplace inside the castle with a large array of other items. We enjoyed some free samples after our tasting!
Buena Vista Winery was founded in 1857 and has some great stories behind it. Ask about the crocodile. This was a winery we picked for not only it’s look but its history. It has some unique decor that warrants a visit.

Most people visit Sonoma for the wine, but if you enjoy spirits as well then make sure to fit in a visit to Prohibition Spirits. I recommend their HelloCello collection! You can taste and purchase these spirits at Cornerstone Sonoma which is also worth checking out for some food and shopping.
Ferrari-Carano Winery and Vineyard was one of our last stops on our roundabout way to the coast. It is worth the stop to walk through the gardens and look out over the vineyard from the IL Terrazzo Terrace, pictured in part one.
