Wero Restaurant opens at Virginia Dare Winery
With its name shortened from Werowocomoco to Wero, the restaurant at Virginia Dare Winery is once again serving unique and delicious Native American foods in Geyserville, in northern Sonoma County.
Inspired by the culinary traditions of the earliest inhabitants of North America, the Wero menu focuses on native ingredients with a zestful accent. Popular menu items include fry bread tacos, bison ribs, and rotisserie chicken. Wero is open Friday to Sunday, 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Named for Virginia Dare, the baby girl born in the "lost" colony in what is now Virginia, the winery honors the genesis of American winemaking. Werowocomoco, meaning “place of leadership,” was the center of the Powhatan Confederacy in the early 17th century. Wero Restaurant and Virginia Dare Winery are part of the Family Coppola, the wineries and other businesses created by film director Francis Ford Coppola.
