Hey Steve, me again.
I forgot to mention that Two Amigos is another new tasting room in Sonoma that you might enjoy. This is a secondary effort from Squire Fridell of GlenLyon. The winery hadn't released yet when we were last there, but with Squire's hand involved I'm sure they will be good wine. I think that the Glen Lyon is available to taste there, too, and if so you should definitely taste "Suzy's Toast"- 100% Rousanne and delish.
If you really don't want to leave downtown Sonoma once you arrive, you could walk to Sebastiani's winery- its not that far...maybe 5-6 rural blocks...

Hi Steve.
I think that Sonoma is a good choice for you...heart of Pinot country and good whites, too.
I highly recommend Roessler Cellars for tasting Pinots. They have about 20 different Pinots to offer and we like nearly all that we tried. I haven't been to Sojourn, but their winemaker is the same as at Audelssa which we like very much, and they are wll liked by others are on this board.
Haywood Winery has recently opened a tasting room in Sonoma and they make a delicious Sauv. Blanc. I'm not sure the location of the tasting room, but it shouldn't be too hard to find.
Sonoma Valley has a myriad of great wineries to visit, so plan on taking part of the day there...Ledson has a huge variety of wines and an interesting facility to visit, Chateau St. Jean isn't my favorite for wine, but its a nice winery and I was told that they offer good tours. St Francis is great and offers quite a few food pairing options which might be fun to do.
That's a few suggestions to get you started. I hope someone else will chime in.

My wife and I are visiting our kids in San Fran and plan to drive up to Sonoma for a day. (We visited Napa for several days two years back and loved the area.)
We have dinner reservations in Sonoma - were recommended to the Depot Hotel - and since my wife wants to walk around Sonoma before dinner I would prefer to stay in that general area.
Need some recommendations for wineries. My wife loves Pinot Noir (I generally prefer whites).
Thanks, Steve
