Off The Grill

Summertime grilling is an All American popular pastime and Sonoma Valley with its sunny blue skies and warm breezes provide a perfect Alfresco dining/picnic experience. It is a fact that food simply tastes better outdoors! The Gilded Grape only uses locally farm raised meats, Pacific coast seafood, farmstead cheeses and sustainable Organic produce to insure the most flavorful Wine Country spread just off the grill. Homemade fruited BBQ sauces, citrus marinades, smokey salts and herbed rubs all enhance each dish, creating the explosion of summertime goodness this valley has to offer.
