Paul Stokey has recently moved Tesoro Flowers retail store to Cornerstone Gardens, 23566 Arnold Drive in Sonoma, after more than 15 years serving the Napa Valley from its St. Helena headquarters.
A full-service florist with delivery service in both Sonoma and Napa County, Tesoro has been highlighted in House & Garden, Architectural Digest, Interior Design, Veranda, Gourmet and the San Francisco Chronicle. It counts numerous wineries, hotels, and restaurants among its clientele, including Villagio Inn and Spa, Auberge du Soleil, Meadowood Resort, Beaulieu Gardens, The Culinary Institute of America/ St. Helena, Merryvale Vineyards, Silverado Resort, Tra Vigne, Calistoga Ranch and The Harvest Inn.
Stokey points out that his flowers come from a variety of growers, many based right here in Northern California, but he also makes weekly early-morning trips to the San Francisco Flower Market where flowers come from as far away as Holland, New Zealand and South America.
Tesoro offers an extensive collection of terra cotta, glass, rustic, and ceramic containers, many that come from Mexico, Spain and Italy. In addition to these interesting touches, Stokey utilizes local flowers and produce including hydrangeas, sunflowers, garden roses, grapevine, olive branches, grapes and pomegranates in his designs.
Tesoro Flowers will be open daily from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Phone 939-6931. For more information visit www.tesoroflowers.com.
