Gourmet Getaway

We recommend and use locally sourced foods and beverages from throughout Sonoma Country, a region of superlatives and recognized worldwide for its wines, foods and organic options. The same concept is possible for you to hire the services of a short list of the region’s up and coming gourmet chefs, hand-selected by WineBerry owner Brent Doyle, who himself is known, as he likes to say, for “Pizza, prime (rib) and Paella” – not to mention his life’s passion, seafood (and the gathering of it!).

Do It Yourself ~ Become a “Hunter-Gatherer”

Let’s have a little fun here…According to Wikipedia:

“A hunter-gatherer or forager society is one in which most or all food is obtained from wild plants and animals, in contrast to agricultural societies which rely mainly on domesticated species. Hunting and gathering was the ancestral subsistence mode of Homo, and all modern humans were hunter-gatherers until around 10,000 years ago. Following the invention of agriculture hunter-gatherers have been displaced by farming or pastoralist groups in most parts of the world. Only a few contemporary societies are classified as hunter-gatherers, and many supplement, sometimes extensively, their foraging activity with farming and/or keeping animals.”

So, call us contemporary, because we’re all sourcing our fruits, vegetables and protein from farms. But, the concept here is, you have the chance to get back to your ancient ancestral roots and do a bit of foraging, to round up the foods and beverages you’ll be able to cook up for and with your friends and family in WineBerry’s gourmet kitchens. Yes, and you’ll be able to truly forage if you truly want to get wild – wild mushrooms, herbs and much more are to be found in Sonoma County hills, and you can fish in the Pacific, secure live crab, mussels and much more, just 30 minutes from WineBerry. We can point you in the right direction for seafood, organic produce, local wines and virtually any other fare you want – make it a hunting-gathering experience with the whole family – from the sea to the griddle all in the same day.
