Safari West was born in the late 1980’s when a man by the name of Peter Lang purchased 400 rolling acres in the foothills of the Mayacamas Mountains. Relocating his small but growing collection of exotic wildlife, Peter quickly converted the former cattle ranch into a world class conservation breeding facility. As Peter set to work establishing captive breeding programs for the varied and often critically endangered species in his collection he worked closely with local zoological facilities, including, of course, the San Francisco Zoo. It was there that he met lead curator, raptor-specialist, and his future wife, Nancy Lang. Combining their unique skill-sets, the pair set about turning this vast swath of oak woodland into the world class wildlife preserve it is today.
We're no strangers to Sonoma County. We've combed its front country and its tucked-back corners since we were kids, most often on two wheels.. We came to love our home and the community that filled it in ways we never thought possible. But, outside of the bike saddle, we could never find a hook on which to hang that affection. No more. Now that camaraderie/filial piety/romance/whatever that we found on two wheels has a place to live, grow, and be shared. And while there isn’t always time for another loop in Annadel, there’s usually a few minutes for friends to share a beer. Or two. Or three.We wanted those minutes to have a home, so we built Santa Rosa’s most bike-friendly ale house and cafe at the foot of Northern California’s preeminent singletrack treasure horde.Whether you come on two wheels or two feet, the feeling’s the same: sit back, put up those tired dogs, and skip the coasters.

Since our first batch in 1992, our goal has been to make the best tasting beer we can. We believe that traditional processes have a place in the modern brewery. While much of our protocol extends the time from kettle to glass, we continue to practice these long established techniques because the beer deserves it. Respected beer is tasty beer. Our 20 barrel brewhouse has no computers, requiring kinship between raw ingredients, equipment, and brewer in order to produce our beer. We use sight, smell and taste (and some lab gadgetry) to determine when a beer is ready to be released to the world. While most of our beer is made with just malted barley and hops, we use different grains and herbs in some of our seasonal beers. These ingredients and the flavors they produce give us a glimpse into a time when the beer world was not dominated by hops. Although most of our beers are fermented with our house lager and ale yeasts, we usually slip in a few saisons in Summertime. We hope you will find a few new favorites in our offerings. Cheers!

In 2005, a group of Sonoma County mothers began planning a children’s museum to address the lack of a local gathering place where parents, grandparents, and teachers could support a child’s natural craving for curiosity and exploration. Inspired by their visits to children’s museums across the country, these mothers knew firsthand the need for providing children enriched, learning experiences.

We started West Wine Tours because we knew locals in vintage VW buses would be the coolest way for guests to taste wine in California Wine Country. Our drivers were raised right here, so their approach to touring is authentic and laid back yet their knowledge of the area can't be beat. If you are a complete novice or a wine expert you will enjoy the journey.

Scribe Winery in Sonoma, Calif. produces vibrant, terroir-driven wines. The winery–founded in 2007 on a property that pioneered pre-prohibition Sonoma Valley winemaking–is managed by fourth-generation California farmers and brothers, Andrew and Adam Mariani. Andrew and Adam believe that the best wines are a result of a healthy relationship between man and nature, and that a vineyard managed in harmony with the greater ecosystem results in more site-specific wines that represent a sense of time and place. When vinified with non-interventionist methods, the result is a distinct wine that faithfully reflects what the vineyard naturally expresses.
Noah and Kelly are two Missouri natives who ventured to the West Coast, like many before them, chasing dreams. Fortunately, some of those wine-fueled dreams in their story actually came true. Over the past nine years they have built a runaway success story with their business partners in Banshee Wines, winning acclaim and lots of new friends along the way. Now with Reeve Wines they are aiming to create a small creative outlet for some new varieties, with new ideas and grapes from new places. Nothing quite personifies this like their passion for creating a truly great California Sangiovese to rival the best in Italy. In this quest they have taken on Ross Cobb (Cobb Wines, Hirsch, Flowers, Williams Selyem) and Katy Wilson (LaRue, Kamen, Flowers) as partners in crime. The combination of experience, passion, and ideas among this group are palpable. Noah spearheads production and winemaking. Kelly oversees hospitality and experience. Their main commonality lies in the fact that they dream big with high expectations. It is without a doubt that every bottle of Reeve Wines is a piece of that dream worthy of sharing during life's best moments.
Preston Farm and Winery is a family-operated, organic and biodynamic property in Healdsburg’s Dry Creek Valley. Our 125 acres are nestled between a meandering salmon-spawning stream and a sleepy stretch of former wagon trail leading to town. Under 45 years of stewardship by our family, the land has evolved from an emphasis on wine alone to diversified crops including vineyards, vegetables, fruit and olive trees, grain, and pastured livestock. Our estate winery features a tasting room, farm store, and bakery with a wood-fired oven. Estate-pressed olive oil and cured olives, sourdough loaves, pickles, and produce from the farm are available for purchase along with the wines. Visitors are encouraged to picnic in the gardens and to enjoy the farm property.
