La Bodega Cheese Shop specializes in local cheeses, and Sonoma is known for it's great cheese. The price for a tasting about $15 for ten cheeses but the tasting fee is waived if you buy cheese, and you probably will. They will tailor your cheeses to your taste (strong/mild, hard/soft). The courtyard is very pleasant to sit in but there are only a couple of tables so go before lunch or mid-afternoon. The shop is attached the Sonoma Wine Shop - ask to do a wine tasting with your cheese. The Wine Shop specializes in small, local wineries and serves some excellent wines in the $20-$30/bottle range. The wine tasting fee is also waived if you buy wine.
