Who says dessert has to be eaten? At Sonoma Valley Portworks, you can drink it: the tasting room at this Petaluma winery exclusively features dessert wines and ports, the only one in Sonoma to specialize in these after-dinner drinks. Sitting just outside the heavily trafficked downtown area, it’s a major player in the port industry, offering unique varietals like its renowned Deco port with rich notes of dark chocolate, cherry, blueberry, and espresso. The team here sources organic and sustainable grapes from the Heringer Estates in Clarksburg before crafting its handmade (or, should I say, foot-made) wines through pressing the grapes by foot. You'll learn how to create perfect food-and-wine pairings for your next dinner party as you nosh on various cheeses, chocolates, and desserts alongside your glass.
