THE PLAZA BISTRO AT SONOMA, CA
My son booked us on Viator's Tour of Muir Woods and The Wine Country recently and we thoroughly enjoyed the tour. This took us first to the beautiful Muir Woods National Monument located in Mount Tamalpais in the Marin County in California and later to three wineries in the Sonoma and Napa Valleys in California.
There were just eight of us on the tour and we came from different places. There was a gentleman from the Philippines, a couple from St Louis, Missouri, a couple from Houston, Texas, and a lady from Orange County, California, apart from my husband and me from India.
The lunch started with a complimentary sparkling wine which was served with the appetizer of Cheese Board with Fresh Fruit. On that day, we were served strawberries, pineapple and grapes along with two types of cheese.
With each course, we got to taste a different type of wine. The first course was the Baby Mixed Greens tossed with Fresh Herbs Vinaigrette, Red Grape Tomatoes and Croutons. This was so tasty and refreshing.
From the various options for the main course, we had opted for the Grilled Salmon over Sauteed Vegetables drizzled with Balsamic Reduction. This was simply superb.
Our 11 hour tour, which had started early in the morning ended in the evening with a halt at the iconic Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco, where all of us took many pictures of the beautiful views from there.
