Have you ever heard of a small town in Sonoma County called Geyserville? If not, you’re missing out. Home to some of the most interesting wineries and restaurants, Geyserville is for sure a gem of Sonoma County.
Where to drink:
Pech Merle is a precious boutique winery with, as they say, an “up-cycled chic vibe”. Visited them once a couple of years ago, I’m still in love with Pech Merle. Stop in for a tasting or book a private tasting + cheese/charcuterie board to make it a date! PS. Do join their wine club for special perks and discount on delicious wine.
Ramazzotti is a family owned winery brought to you from the heart of Italy. You won’t be able to walk away without a case of Ramzzotti wine!
Mercury, next door to the Ramazzotti is another must visit winery in the area. They specialize in small lot Bordeaux, Rioja and Rhone styles of wine. Make sure to say hello to their pup Freddy!
Where to Stay:
Geyserville Inn is a newly remodeled, family owned inn surrounded by vineyards. It’s a short drive away from the main area and features a pool, lounge area with fire pit, and a brand new on-site wine tasting room and their own restaurant Geyserville Grille.
The rooms are beautifully decorated, spacious and budget friendly.
Where to eat:
Geyserville Grille is located at the Inn and is an amazing choice for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Obviously, the food is delicious with high quality local ingredients.
Diavola is an outstanding option for homemade pastas, pizzas, and house cured salumi and sausages. After a long day of wine tasting, you can’t go wrong here! #italianStateofMind.
Day by the Pool:
If you’re staying in Geyserville for a couple of days, book ahead and spend a day by the pool at the Francis Ford Coppola Winery which is an exprience in itself. Pool day with a side of wine tasting and delicous food… sounds like a dream right now. Make sure to book your pool cabines MONTHS in advance.
I hope this gives you a good idea for a special day or weekend out and about Geyserville with plenty of options for your wino-s enjoyment. Cheers!
