Taub Family Outpost
One part tasting room, one part marketplace, one part restaurant, Taub Family Outpost wears a lot of hats and wears them all well. Stop in for one of their wine flights structured around a theme (such as light floral reds, rare white varietals, or unique sparkling wines and ciders) and pair it with some bar snacks. If you’re hungry, opt for the full-service restaurant upstairs, where the pared-down dinner menu mixes French bistro standards like beef tartare, trout rillettes, and steak frites with California-inspired salads and seafood. On Sundays, they offer a three-course menu for $40 per person, an excellent value in otherwise-expensive Sonoma.
