R2 Wine Company takes its name from its founders, Roger and Richard Roessler, two brothers who combine their years of business and restaurant-industry experience to bottle up the rare and delicious tastes of Sonoma's sunny vineyards. With the aid of expert viticulturist and winemaker Drew Huffine, the two brothers show their love for the noble grape with a wealth of original vintages, such as the complex Rhapsody rhone that epitomizes the cool, bright terroir of the Santa Ynez Valley, or the Red Birds pinot noir, which celebrates the brothers love for their hometown team. Curious guests congregate for vino-sipping soirees at the earthy-hued tasting room off the Sonoma Plaza, or join the wine club for regular deliveries of mouthwatering vintages and invitations to members-only events and tastings.
Though its name suggests a bygone pub of yore, there?s hardly anything old about Olde Sonoma Public House. In fact, the bar?s 32 taps constantly rotate new craft beers, microbrews, and global pours from esteemed breweries such as Stone and Russian River. Olde Sonoma even hosts two rotating cider taps, as well as plenty of bottled brews to take home. Once inside, however, home maybe the farthest thing from your mind. Here, flippers propel pinballs, darts hurtle toward bullseyes, and 8-balls tumble into corner pockets all as the day?s biggest games and tiniest sideline tantrums unfold on large-screen TVs. Besides games aplenty, the pub hosts frequent live music and monthly karaoke.
