Cornerstone Sonoma is a MUST VISIT on your drive into or out of Sonoma Valley – enjoy world class garden installations, wine tasting, outdoor dining, fine art, and more, all in one stop. It is also one of the Valley’s most popular Wedding Destinations, which says a lot about the venue and related services.
Park 121 Cafe Grill and Cornerstone Gardens hosted our Association meeting in September, and, wow, we were all very impressed! Great lunch and fascinating garden tour, followed a wine tasting at the collection of boutique winery tasting rooms, all without having to drive an inch. Thank you Teresa Raffo and Bruce Riezenman!!
The winery and grounds have never looked better. Taste your way to the perfect wine, and then picnic in their gorgeous gardens. They even have a Bocce Court for your enjoyment.
Oh, and I did mention that Chateau St Jean offers a complimentary tasting for guests staying at establishments belonging to the Bed & Breakfast Association of Sonoma Valley!
