A Food and Wine Pairing – Summer 2011
By Lindy Baker and Judy Tischler
Situated right off Highway 12 in Sonoma County is Mayo Family’s Reserve room where they showcase their wines with a food and wine pairing. The Highway 12 / Sonoma Valley corridor is an often overlooked part of wine country – it shouldn’t be. Beautiful vineyards, farmlands and trees flank the highway which winds its way to some fine wineries including St. Francis, Kunde, Arrowood and more. Mayo’s reserve room is a tasting room; the winemaking facility and hospitality center is located nearby in Glen Ellen on Arnold Drive. The grounds are pleasant, but not a place to picnic or stroll.
