Roche Winery was our winery of the day and a very pleasant surprise. The wines are good but the service is outstanding. We really had a fun time here and the people working were very friendly and helpful and keen to answer all of our questions and tell a few stories. The tasting room is large enough for a crowd, and what is very surprising is that this is the very first winery you hit when driving into Sonoma from San Francisco - you would expect it to be a tourist trap which it very much isn't. Definitely recommended. Feb 2010 - Looks like Roche has moved location. The tasting room is now at the Sonoma Plaza. We went to an open house and were not at all impressed with the wines. The food though was very good!!
