This year is a great time to look at both the past and the future of Sonoma County — the past because 2018 marks a number of significant anniversaries, and the future because so many innovative new ventures are happening in Sonoma Wine Country. Gundlach Bundschu, California’s oldest family-owned and -operated winery, celebrates 160 years of business in 2018! On the other hand, fans of Sonoma County wines now have a new wine region to explore — the Petaluma Gap American Viticultural Area which recently became Sonoma County’s 18th official wine appellation. Visitors can also grab a bite at Salt & Stone, the new casual-chic California eatery and oyster bar in Kenwood. If you are vegan, you can savor authentic and fragrant curries, delicately seasoned soups, and other delicious tastes of Nepal, India, and more at the new Himalayan Vegan Organic restaurant in Cotati, in central Sonoma County. Be sure to stop by here for your next trip as there is a bit for everyone!
