Spring ushers in fair weather for outdoor culinary adventures and flea market crawls, and awakens the senses with eye-popping color from farmers markets to art exhibits. Here are our picks for the best things to do in Wine Country this month.
Food, Wine and Design at Ram’s Gate Winery
Located atop a hill overlooking the rolling hills of Carneros, the Howard Backen-designed Ram’s Gate Winery integrates rustic farmstead design with modern sensibility. The intimate courtyard anchors several wine tasting areas that boast panoramic views, 30-foot tall ceilings and breezy, flowing spaces. Inside, the neutral palette, luxe seating and dramatic lighting designed by Orlando Diaz-Azcuy bring elegance to the weathered wood interiors. 28700 Arnold Dr., Sonoma.
Sonoma Valley Reserve Weekend
Food and wine pairing stars at Ram’s Gate, so it’s no surprise they are one of four wineries featured for the all-day Food & Wine Pairing tour, one of ten themed wine adventures that make up Sonoma Valley Reserve weekend, May 19 - 20 from 10 am to 5 pm. $95 per person per daily tour or $150 per person for both days, includes picnic lunch.
