One Fine Weekend at Sonoma Distilleries

In and Around Sonoma

“Across from Sonoma Plaza, the Prohibition Spirits tasting room boasts some 40 products, but its signature Limoncello di Sonoma helped launch the business 13 years ago. Other standouts include a smoked chocolate brandy liqueur, six varieties of gin, and the Screaming Viking, a Scandinavian-style unsweetened schnapps.

Owned and operated by four siblings and their parents, Hanson of Sonoma Distillery creates organic vodka from grapes and infuses it with ingredients like ginger, habanero, grapefruit, and Meyer lemon. Along with neat pours and craft cocktails, tasting options include a martini and caviar pairing, and a chocolate truffle matchup.

In-between tastes: Explore the gardens at Cornerstone Sonoma, then have a seat at Folktable and prepare to be wowed by dishes highlighting ingredients from the property’s organic farms. 
Created by chef Casey Thompson, a season three Top Chef finalist, the restaurant’s seasonal menu might include fried chicken goujons, crudites with farm goddess dip, and Farmer Landy’s BLT.

Sleep late at MacArthur Place Hotel and Spa, then wake up with locally owned Uppercase Tea, served at the hotel’s restaurant, Layla. If deep relaxation is on the weekend wish list, soak in the mineral hot springs at the Fairmont Sonoma Mission Inn and Spa.” — Dana Rebmann, October 2021
