This is book number 11 in the Amicis Winery Guides series.
Sonoma is a gorgeous, diverse destination, with near perfect weather and hundreds of unique wineries to delight the eyes and thrill every palate, whether they belong to a novice or a collector. This book is like having good friends in Wine Country, because the key to truly enjoying Sonoma's remarkable wineries is having an insider's ideas about where to go. Who better to share that than two winery tour guides, who have consistently wowed their clients with their itineraries, based on their many years of hearing about what clients enjoyed most? But, creating your own best 'wish list' can be tricky and that's where this book shines. It explains how to plan the daytrips and how to travel these country roads safely. This book answers more questions about the Sonoma Wine Country than most people can imagine asking. The first half of the book tells the reader everything they need to know to feel comfortable and confident wine touring, including how to get there, where to stay, how to dress, what to expect in a tasting room, how to taste the wines to best capture their true nature and more. The second half is the directory of 260 wineries that can be easily visited, with the authors personal descriptions and insights. Next, there is a bonus chapter about visiting Wine Country with children for those exceptional times, and two more chapters from the upcoming travel book, 'Wine Country in Shorts', to round out the story. Finally, the book features easy-to-read tour maps, keyed to the directory, to help visitors easily navigate between hotels, wineries and restaurants. This is the ultimate insider's guide from a couple who have been to hundreds of wineries with clients, that will help visitors plan their time in Sonoma for a day or a month, and then guide them while they are there
