SONOMA LIFE - Feast of the Olive
You want to know a secret? The best way to our heart is food, and the best way to do this is to invite us to the Feast of the Olive Dinner at Ramekins Culinary School.
Where else can newcomers, visitors and residents of Sonoma Valley have an opportunity to savor the cooking of 18 of our local chefs and enjoy the product of numerous winemakers?
We ate, we drank, the basked in the glow of candles, tasted olive oils, visited with our tablemates. Welcomed visitors from near and far, and counted our lucky stars for living in Sonoma and being a part of this delectable experience.
