Thanks to its picturesque vineyards, wineries with stunning architecture, and critically-acclaimed wines, it’s not surprising that most visits to Napa Valley are centered around wine tasting.
Have visitors in town and looking for a way to entertain them? Why not send them on a walk-about through downtown Sausalito or Tiburon, or treat yourself? Gourmet Food and Wine Tours founder Renée ReBell spins stories about these Marin locales as she leads guests to restaurants to sip upscale boutique wines paired with farm-to-table dishes.
Gourmet food and wine can be a bit daunting. Where to go? What to do? What goes with what? And then there’s the reservations. It can be a bit overwhelming. Throw in driving, and your options can be quite limited. But what if someone did it all for you?
Marin is a California culinary destination. Just enter an experience-awarding website like Tripadvisor-owned Viator.com or LivingSocial, and Marin County foodie tours are a hot commodity; Tomales Bay. Hog Island Oyster Company. Table Top Farm in Point Reyes. Cowgirl Creamery. All of Marin’s highlights are there, accompanied by images that make the region look utterly irresistible and somewhat other-worldly.
In the past I have driven by and walked by, but I have never graced the threshold until I went on my latest food tour – hosted by Gourmet Food and Wine Tours. You know, recently Thomas Keller executed a killer 10 million dollar renovation on the famed French Laundry.
