Where is the wine?

Can you believe that I made a trip to Sonoma yesterday without having a glass of wine? 

I am in love with my Burberry scarf and coat

First time visiting Benziger Family Winery, but I missed the tram tour due to the late arrival. I walked around a little bit in the winery, and really love the ambient of it. There wasn’t many visitors at the time I was there because it’s almost 5pm on a Sunday. I am sure I will be back for the tour.


My main purpose of visiting Sonoma is for this place The girl and the fig.

There were a few empty tables at the patio 🤔


I arrived at 5:45pm, which I thought it’s still considered early for normal dining hours, and didn’t expect to be packed at the restaurant. I was told by the host that there wasn’t any table available for party of two, and the waiting is an hour.

Without wanting to wait for an hour, I took the communal table seating. I ordered a drink, a cheese plate, and side of fries.

After taking my orders, the server further asked if I wanted to have my entree ordered because it would take an hour to get the entered prepared and served. I wasn’t very happy to hear that, and decided to take a pass on the entree. 

Very refreshing non alcoholic drink, with pomegranate juice, soda, ginger and mint

The fig compote and the fig cake were tasty, the cheeses were kinda disappointed

This is a nothing special fries


Despite of the over 2500 reviews in Yelp, the whole dining experience I had in the restaurant really turned me off. Maybe it’s me, maybe will be more pleasant if I made a reservation ahead? Maybe…
