Santa Rosa, 在红酒天堂Sonoma 中心。
On Memorial Day weekend, we headed north across Richmond- San Rafael bridge to Sonoma County. I had visited Sonoma for only a day trip for the first time when I was with a TV Crew two years ago. I was only at the Paradise Ridge Winery to shoot a scene, but I loved their delicate outdoor area and great wine with high-quality cheese and fruit paring. While I didn’t stay long on the first visit, I remembered the laid-back atmosphere, found my favorite pick of wine – Pinot Noir. If you visited North California and love Pinot, you’ll be sure to love to stop by one of the many beautiful vineyards in Sonoma. We settled for a wine tasting and stroll around vineyards in Balletto near Santa Rosa, and couldn’t help but snapped a few pictures.
Santa Rosa的酒庄多如牛毛，能不能选到中意的就要看经验了。比如我们当天选的酒庄Balletto品酒体验就只是站在吧台边，并且不提供芝士或者水果搭配。酒味依然很赞，可是我想下回在选择上就会更偏重有室外可爱的庭院，并且提供芝士和水果配搭。毕竟Sonoma的Pinot Noir都是一流的。
After about half an hour tour around the vineyards with only the two of us, we decided to head to our hotel early, relax and have dinner out in one of the top rated restaurants in Santa Rosa (I had the best dry-aged steak there). Our hotel Hotel La Rose was in the center of Santa Rosa downtown. This was a historic boutique hotel with a 70s feeling lobby, well decorated with a touch of luxury and warm welcoming. This hotel is also famous for its haunted story, but we didn’t have any special guest visit us at night. The restaurant, Stark’s Steak & Seafood, is only 3 minutes walk away.
Hotel La Rose是位于Santa Rosa中心的一个有百年历史的酒店。
酒店旁边就是颇负盛名的干式熟成牛排餐厅，Stark’s Steak & Seafood，是Santa Rosa评价最好的餐厅之一。
