Outstanding in the Field

Joan and Walt Flowers pioneered the growing of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay grapes on the rugged hillsides of the Sonoma Coast in the 1990s. And we have been given the rare opportunity to set the table at their seminal vineyard, Camp Meeting Ridge. Here, fog drifts in from the Pacific to curl below steep hillsides lined with grapevines, and sunset colors gild the leaves in the late afternoon. These hills are famously steep, but we will be sure to set the table within a reasonable walking distance. Chef Nelson German will be coming up from Oakland to cook for us amongst the vines. He’s known for his time on Top Chef, but now has two award-winning restaurants, Sobre Mesa and alaMar. He won over our guests with a seafood feast on the beach last year, and won over our crew by staying late to serve a special family meal featuring his own grandmother’s recipe.
