Wine and Girl Scout Cookie Pairing3.10.18
Ditch the milk and reach for wine. Meadowcroft recommends pairing your Girl Scout cookies with wine for the ultimate cookie experience. Meadowcroft Wines is offering a tasting flight of five wines paired with five Girl Scout Cookies from 12 pm to 3 pm in their Sonoma Tasting Room on Saturday, March 10. Each flight is $20. This event is open to the public and no reservations are required.
“Samoas, Thin Mints, Trefoils – they’re all even tastier when paired with wine,” says Tom Meadowcroft, Owner and Wine Grower at Meadowcroft Wines, “We are pairing the Toffee-tastic cookie with our 2016 Los Carneros Chardonnay for an amazing combination. Try the caramel and toasted coconut Samoas with our All She Wrote Port for a decadent treat.”

Sonoma Valley Museum of Art: Jack London1.20.18 – 4.15.18
Jack London (1876-1916) is revered as the quintessential American novelist and short story writer, and in the Sonoma area he is a renowned native son. His internationally celebrated literary works include The Call of the Wild, The Sea Wolf, White Fang, and Martin Eden. Less well known are London’s concurrent explorations in photography. This exhibition will introduce an array of the writer’s photographs gathered from his adventures as a war correspondent and global sailor. Included are views from the Russo-Japanese War, San Francisco’s 1906 earthquake and fire, and visits to Hawaii and the South Seas islands. They reveal London’s avid curiosity, his perceptive and compassionate eye, and his remarkable comprehension of the then-new art of photography.
*While you’re in the area, be sure to include a visit to the Jack London State Historical Park to hike, bike, photograph, bird watch, and more.
MacArthur Place is an inviting sanctuary to relax and unwind after exploring Sonoma – undoubtably with a glass of local wine. Throughout the month of March, enjoy an additional 20% off rates. Enjoy nightly wine tasting, a treatment at The Garden Spa, and a memorable dinner at Saddles.
