Many families visit other local attractions after (or before) they have purchased their tree.

Take the 15-minute drive to Occidental, and you won’t regret it. This quaint town is home to wonderful little shops and two of the best family style restaurants: Negris and the Union Hotel & Pizzeria.

If you are in the mood to do a little wine tasting, we suggest you stop by  Balletto Vineyards. http://ballettovineyards.com They have an excellent selection of award winning wines to taste.

Sonoma County offers a wide variety of wineries to choose from. In fact, some of the best wine in the world is made right here. A trip to Sonoma County wouldn’t be complete without wine tasting and a tour of the winemaking operation! Visit SONOMA COUNTY FARM TRAILS for suggested wineries and other places to visit. www.farmtrails.org
