Sonoma's Best


Sonoma’s Best

There is alot going on at Sonoma’s Best – from wine tasting, eating, shopping, lodging in their cute cottages to festive scheduled events. My husband and I headed out to picnic at Bartholomew Estate Vineyards and Winery for some R&R. We stopped into Sonoma’s Best on the way there to order a hot reuben, dill pickle chips, and fruit salad to share. They have wine available to go, yet we wanted to check out the Bartholomew Estate Wine so we opted out. Yet, if you like Rosé, this is your place! They have many rosés to choose from.

Glen Ellen Village Market 

Head straight back to the deli to order from Glen Ellen Village Market’s Gourmet Panini Sandwich Menu. There are over 20 gourmet paninis to choose from or you can custom order your own. We ordered from the menu – A Maple Ham sandwich with brie cheese, garlic mayonnaise, sun dried tomatoes, and spring mix on focaccia bread, and a Brisket Sandwich loaded with coleslaw, pickles, sauce, cheddar cheese, and brisket. We wished we had ordered two of the brisket sandwiches after tasting them, they were so good! We grabbed olives from their olive bar and some waters for hydration which is a must for endurance wine tasting. Glen Ellen Village Market has everything you need and more for your next picnic in wine country. 

Broadway Market 

Broadway Market Sonoma for Picnic Foods

There’s nothing fancy about Broadway Market which makes it so charming. You cannot go wrong with your order at their deli. Head to the deli to order sandwiches, grab to go sides and main dishes. The rotisserie chicken is long gone if you don’t get there early, and do call your order in for your deli sandwich so your order will be ready to go for your day of picnicking. This place is bustling all day long from 5:30am — 8pm most days. It’s a downright local favorite. They have a great wine selection too. broadwaymarketsonoma.com

Sonoma Market 

Sonoma Market is a staple in Sonoma Valley. They know what they are doing and are always there for you with a friendly face and smile. I love that they have a picnic category on their website where all you have to do is call in and order, or order online. They have everything from a tapas kit, picnic kit, signature box lunches, and artisanal cheese and charcuterie. Of course, you can always run in on the fly to pick up pre-made items or order from their deli. Whatever your picnic craving, Sonoma Market is most likely to satisfy. Their curated wine selection is also a winner.

Sonoma Cheese Factory

Housed in a factory that made cheeses from 1945 to 2001 in this very location, Sonoma Cheese Factory is the go-to in the Historic Sonoma Plaza for gourmet picnic foods. Their arrangement of cheeses are so vast, the only challenge you might have is choosing. Grab sandwiches to go or opt for selecting your own charcuterie, cheese, wine, and olive selection for a customized experience. They even carry a few picnic accessories like picnic blankets, picnic baskets, and cutting boards. Sonoma Cheese Factory is right across the street from the Plaza, making it convenient for a day’s picnic. Bon Appetit!
