Dry Creek Valley
Sonoma Wine Country Weekend hosts include Francis Ford Coppola Winery (Sonoma Starlight Supper Club), MacMurray Ranch Winery (Taste of Sonoma), Chateau Ste. Jean (Sonoma Valley Harvest Wine Auction) plus scores of other wineries across Sonoma County.
Tip: Stay in Healdsburg, a quaint and upscale town just a short drive south of the Dry Creek Valley. You'll find art galleries, unique shops, tasting rooms and a charming center square.
Tim Bucher loves tractors. Trust me. I mean loves them; like a collector of exotic Italian supercars, he keeps them polished supreme, and on display. "Serial number one!"
If you are sticking to a traditional turkey — stuffing and mashed potato theme — a white with character such as a dry, oaky Chardonnay, a Riesling or Gewurztraminer with some residual sugar and good acid balance (most Rieslings created here and not in Germany tend not to be ultra dry).
