Sonoma County is known for its excellent Chardonnay wines and those produced at Sonoma Cutrer Winery are no exception. Tucked away on a lush hillside in Windsor, Sonoma Cutrer may be one of the few places in Sonoma where you can play croquet and indulge in a picnic on beautifully manicured tree-shaded grounds all in the same day. More about the Croquet:: Home of the world famous North American Open Tournament, Sonoma Cutrer hosts two championship level croquet lawns. One of the best places on site to enjoy a wine tasting might well be a comfy seat on the wide terrace overlooking the croquet lawns while watching almost daily croquet players kitted out in the traditional whites as they practice or play. Sonoma Cutrer Winery is a bit off the beaten path but the tasting room ambience, lawn croquet with a glass of Sauvignon Blanc or Owsley Ranch Chardonnay with warm, sunny views of the vineyards all combine to make the drive well worthwhile.
