When friends ask me where they should go in the Wine County, I usually recommend Sonoma over Napa. I like both, but find Sonoma to be a little less crowded and pretentious, and a lot more casual and welcoming. Wellington Vineyards is an example in point.
Our recent Sonoma field trip started with Gayle enjoying a glass of Wellington Chardonnay at the Hot Box Grill. It ended at the "compact with a punch" Wellington tasting room, as we enjoyed both their white and red ports. It was a lot of no-pressure fun and good conversation with the guy who fills in over the Weekend. The tastings were excellent and we really appreciated the opportunity to try some really unique things. Our host also gave us a lot of good ideas for winery and restaurant options the next time we were in the area and told some great local stories. It's a small world among those in the business up here, and we appreciated the peak on how some of the personal relationships actually work.
