Our eateries use only the freshest ingredients at their tables – an easy task when so much is available right here in Sonoma County. An abundance of fruits, vegetables, and herbs blanket the countryside. Cattle, sheep, and pigs graze while chickens and turkeys scratch in the pastures.

Goats and cows offer up fresh milk and cheese. Dungeness crab, salmon, and briny oysters are harvested fresh from the sea. Get a taste of local cuisine where Life Opens Up.
