Anniversary Weekend Wrap Up::Sonoma

As most of you are aware, yesterday was our two year wedding anniversary and we chose to spend the weekend in Sonoma.  Wow...let me just tell you...not only was the wine superb, but the food was SPECTACULAR!  By yesterday, we were ready to head back...happily full and rested!

 We got into town Friday night and headed to Della Santina's for dinner...it was truly one of the best Italian dinners I have had in a long time.  We ordered the caprese, panzanella, gnocchi, and pesto linguine.  The gnocchi was my favorite...I might have eaten all of Hubby's dish!  Oops!

 Saturday morning, we had breakfast at Sunflower Caffe...the lattes were amazing!

 And so was the peppered bacon waffle...WOW!

 There were adorable shops in downtown Sonoma...I especially loved this crystal chandelier...

 And this wine bottle chandelier...

 And these adorable vases.

 We were fortunate enough to stay at a cottage on a winery...the Chardonnay Rombauer winery, that is!

 One of my favorite wineries was the Little Vineyard...amazing wine and views!

 I  love the seating there...would love to recreate this look in my own yard!

 The Larson Family Vineyard was also a favorite of ours!

 Dinner that night was none other than the girl + the fig...every flavor was pure perfection and the outdoor seating was divine!

 We got to experience new cheeses...

And delectable desserts...caramel and dark chocolate?  Lavender vanilla creme brulee?  I died and went to Heaven!

 Here are all the wineries we visited plus the amazing bottle of champagne our hosts left for us to enjoy!

Imagery Winery
Little Vineyards
Valley of the Moon Winery
VJB Vineyard & Cellars
Larson Family Winery
Kenwood Vineyards 

For Sunday Brunch...we went to El Dorado Kitchen and I immediately fell in love with this huge farm table!

Of course, no wrap-up post would be complete without our picture!  :)

Hubby thoroughly spoiled me throughout the weekend...I am a lucky girl!  We had the best time and can't wait to go back soon.

Happy Anniversary Babe!
