Sonoma County Vineyard

Another reason I love Sonoma...

If you haven't figured it out, I love Sonoma. Not just the town of, but Sonoma County and all of its cool little towns as well. (More on that as I travel through Sonoma).

Tonight we went to one of our favorite local restaurants in Sonoma: The Red Grape. There are many options in Sonoma, especially surrounding the plaza, but this is consistently one of the best eateries at a great price.

The Red Grape has great pizzas, pastas and panninis (at lunch). Sometimes we take a bottle of wine, but most of the time we order off their list. Their wine list is almost all local wines at really reasonable prices.

Tonight, I ordered a margherita pizza and paired it with a Pellegrini Merlot from Alexander Valley. The half bottle was just $14....that's awesome!

The wine paired perfectly. It had great acid (a must for food pairing), and flavors of chocolate, black cherry and just a little oak.

We finished the meal with one of their giant ice cream sundaes. Perfect!

Stick around for more wine and culinary adventures. Until then, Cheers!
