There are hundreds of wineries in Napa and Sonoma Counties—so many that planning a trip to wine country can be an intimidating and daunting task, especially to the inexperienced drinker. Where to stay? What to eat? What to drink? To help answer some of these questions, it’s best to turn to a local professional, specifically someone like Alanna Hanson. Hanson is the marketing director at Hanson of Sonoma Organic Vodka, a family-run company that produces small-batch, grape-based vodka with organic ingredients. At just 27, Hanson has helped grow the family distillery exponentially over the past four years. Earlier this summer, the Hansons opened their first tasting room in Sonoma. Although she grew up in Marin and went to college in Southern California, Hanson knowns Sonoma like the back of her hand. We asked her to share her favorite spots in the area. Think of her suggestions as the ultimate millennial’s guide to wine country.
