Was at Lake Sonoma for the start of the Ironman 70.3 Santa Rosa but didn't have the swim due to fog. however swam there the day before and it was delightful. Great biking country too and a great start for the bike section of the...More
Moving to Geyserville in 2015, the family and I were very excited to have such a beautiful lake so close by. Last summer we bit the bullet and purchased a lake boat! It wasn’t hard to convince us cosidering we live a measly 8 minutes...More
Lake Sonoma is a beautiful area surrounded by lush mountains. There are a number of picnic sites that are large enough to accommodate groups such as reunions and sufficient parking close-by. A wonderful place to relax.
First. Fish. Steel head, big bass (small mouth and large mouth) HUGE crappie and bluegill .. have caught 30 pound catfish in there.
Now .. Don't want to fish? Bring the kids and family to the rec area below the dam. Also visit the hatchery....More
If you're in the Healdsburg to Cloverdale area, take the time to drive up to the Lake Sonoma Overlook. It's just a short ride up Dry Creek Road from Sbragia or Ferrari Carano wineries. Just follow the road signs. The pictures hardly do this site...More
What a surprise. I had no idea that there was a lake like this close to Healdsburg. We went there (Healdsburg) for our first time to visit family who had just moved there. They took us on a winery tour and stopped by the lake...More
We did not have a dog. However we did see a small sailing boat with two dogs on it.

Working on an Itinerary for August (2 Replies)
My husband and I will be visiting Napa Valley for the third time during the last week of August. Our previous visits have been at the end of May, so I'm assuming this will be a different experience with a lot more people. I'm trying to get my itinerary in order a bit earlier so I can make reservations earlier than I have in the past. A few places I contacted said they start taking reservation three months out, so I will probably start booking at the end of this month. We like big bold...More

I’m sorry, I can’t help you. I’m a bit of a newbie (been once in April) and returning in Sept with my in laws. I’m SO overwhelmed by all the wineries. However, I wanted to thank you for your post because Kunde looks like something we would enjoy.

We took the Napa Valley Wine Shuttle. It was great, only 6 people on the van including us. They took us to some great wineries, but the two best were Esquisse (1155 Mee Lane in St. Helena) and Frank Family (1091 Larkmead Lane, Calistoga). Frank Family Vineyards had the most buttery Zinfandel I ever tasted and the incredibly delicious champagne mixed with 20 year old cognac. I wouldn’t miss Frank Family! Day Trip We drove from Napa to Healdsburg and wandered the town and shops. Then picked...More

Traveling on a Sat. morning in early Sept. from SF. Planned to eat lunch in Healdsburg and walk to some of the tasting rooms, check into rented house, cocktails at Cyrus, dinner at Willis. Full day of winery visits on Sunday, bring picnic lunch, anniversary dinner booked at Farmhouse Inn. Monday am head back to relative's house near SF. Love big, bold Zin's. Looking for winery suggestions - what are truly "doable" logistically from the following list in our two day visit: Mauritson,...More

From your description, it sounds like you'll be limiting your arrival day's tasting room visits to those in-town (walkable)? I'd agree with that, but it also means you only have one day to visit wineries located elsewhere and your list inc's ones from the extreme northern end of Dry Creek (Bella, Ferrari-Carano) all the way to the Sonoma Valley near the town of Sonoma (Ravenswood)--too much driving for one day. I would really limit this visit to either those in the Sonoma Valley or those in...More
