A Tribute To Sonoma
Growing up in Sonoma, we spent a lot of time exploring the local countryside: finding our way through neighboring vineyards owned by old friends and family. I remember the excitement of discovery and freedom while I thoroughly studied our small town and its outskirts. I remember old dusty roads that led to forgotten vineyards and properties… Gehricke is a tribute to one such road.
