Best Sonoma wineries you've never heard of

Jump to last reply

I'm planning a Harvest Time visit to Sonoma County and looking for some fresh ideas of places for us to visit. It seems like I'm seeing the same names on the travel sites and we are ready to explore something different; spots that one doesn't read about in the books or see (often) on the multitude of forums....the places you never hear about.
Is anyone willing to share their "little known favorites"?
We enjoy most varietals, but aren't big fans of Petite Sirah or Pinot Noir, so if you know somewhere that will change our minds on those 2 we're willing to listen. We really like wines from the Rockpile and had in mind to focus a day or so on tasting those. Also very interested in learning more about the Rhone wines, in particular Grenache and Mouvedre.
Other favored wines are Barbera, Primotivo, Sangiovese, Albarino....we really will try most anything but these 4 seem to be difficult to come across.
