Wine tasting on Labor Day weekend:

It will be busy! This is a good weekend to plan for some of those out-of-the-way stops as the popular tourist destinations like Viansa, Krobel and Chateau St. Jean will be crowded on Saturday and Sunday afternoon. Finding parking in the towns of Sonoma and Healdsburg on those afternoons won't be easy either.Head for Alexander Valley, Westside Road in Dry Creek, and some of the more isolated stops in the Russian River Valley.

If you really want to get away from the crowds Fort Ross Winery has just opened their tasting room. It's somewhere up here...

Enjoy your last weekend of the summer! The good news is summer weather will still be hanging around Sonoma County for many more weeks.
