A Renee ReBell Signature Experience

Our Sonoma Plaza Tour is Gourmet Food and Wine Tour’s flagship tour in the north bay from 2014. This experience is a walking, pairing-tour and includes local, boutique wine with 3 restaurant stops & 1 tasting. Gourmet Food & Wine Tours features The girl & the fig on each tour. Our farm-to-table eclectic menu items represent Sonoma, the Wine Country, and each esteemed Chef.

We walk the perimeter of the Sonoma Plaza incorporating history, films, and stories. Each four restaurant stop marries a special, local wine with our culinary dish. Each tour lasts approximately 3 hours and is guided by professional foodies local to the area for over 24 years. Most of the wine we taste can be purchased and shipped to you, provided the state you live in is friendly to wine crossing their border.

The Sonoma Food and Wine Tour is the flagship experience and is the very tour that launched Gourmet Food and Wine Tours into business!
