What we'll do
Those with their own bikes will meet at Sonoma's Best Wine bar & B & B & deli.
Please park across the rd or along the rd. facing the bushes. Or along the fence & road. I will have bikes to rent. But we may have to pick them up about a mile away. I may be able to get them delivered to SB. for more $. (I have done it before)
**Bring a lunch or have the Sonoma's Best deli make you a delicious one.
ITINERARY: Leave S.B. and tour to the historic Cheese factory. Then take paved winery trail to or past Sebastiani winery & up to first winery stop . tastings optional. (I'll have 2 for 1 passes if needed) & some free tasting passes.
Then on a quiet road to the beautiful back country vineyards & forests. When the hills start we have the option to end & ride back without peddling most of the way.
Our next stop will be at a private foundation winery & beautiful hidden park open only open for limited visits 3 days per week. Here we will have our wine picnic under old oaks overlooking valley vineyards. Wine tasting here is also optional & you may also take a self tour thru the museum. Here is where the infamous Count Haraszthy of Hungary started the wine industry in all of California. (be sure to tour the museum) .
After this we ride a short way thru a secret gate to another historical winery & caves. This is the oldest commercial reserve winery in CA. Then onward to one more winery (time permitting) with a lake overview & deep wine caves.
Our return brings us back to Sonoma's Best.
Note: Always have my phone # handy. Bring a tire patch kit & pump. Bring a jacket & layered clothing & your helmet. (I have xtras) bring a bungee cord if you have one. **Our always fun social dinner option follows. You will meet & make great new friends. * This ride is rated as easy to slightly moderate. About 15 miles with several stops for wineries & photo opportunities.
