We know. Santa Rosa is surrounded by some of the most acclaimed vineyards and wineries in the world. And, yes, this is a great place to stay if you want to tour and taste them. But there’s an enophile scene right here in Santa Rosa, too. It’s just a little less traditional. More urban. More cooperative. Usually a little more approachable and accessible. That’s what we’ll be talking about here. Wine for people looking for an alternative to wine country. That’s what’s fermenting in Santa Rosa right now.



The Ultimate Art & Wine Pairing

Over ten years ago, husband and wife team Kent Humphrey and Colleen Teitgen set out on a two-part mission to create premium wine, and to also offer exposure to emerging artists. What resulted is the incomparable smash-up of fine art and fine wine that is Eric Kent Wines.


Hobo Wine Company

Kenny Likitprakong has been making wine under his Hobo Wine Company label since 2002. Driven by wanderlust, Kenny took Hobo from the Monterey Coast, to the mountains of Santa Cruz, to Potter Valley, and everywhere in between. Hence, the name.


Restaurant Week, Reviewed

If you haven’t heard of, or gone out to eat during Restaurant Week, you’re going to want to. Participating eateries offer great values on prix-fixe menu options that highlight their locally sourced offerings.

the collective vision forged at The Farmers Guild and the upcoming Agrarian Lovers Ball is one in which good, honest food is a basic human right, one that is threatened each day by global warming, monopolization and the simple yet dangerous fact that America’s farmers are aging faster than we young clod-hoppers can fill their boots.
