After wine tastings at BR Cohn and Ledson, we headed into downtown Sonoma for a bite to eat. We hadn't had lunch yet and it was about 4 in the afternoon, so where did we stop? Why, the popular The Girl and The Fig restaurant. I have really become a lover of French food (not all, but I'm broadening my horizons). All in all, this restaurant deserves all the hype it has received...the food was delicious and the staff were all nice and accommodating!
Wow, this restaurant was absolutely delicious! If you are in Sonoma, this is a must stop!! The interiors were cozy and inviting. Oh, and did I mention it was absolutely slammed at 4:00 PM?! We didn't have a reservation, but luckily since it was rainy and cold, the covered and heated patio wasn't full, so we sat there.
Angela's husband, Ben, ordered the Duck Confit. I'm not a huge duck fan, but it was the best duck I've ever tasted!!! Needless to say, Ben finished his. I cannot wait to go back to Sonoma and Napa, and eat here again!
After finishing our lunch/dinner, we walked around Sonoma Square. Even though it was dark and rainy, the little town was just what I pictured it would be, cozy with a small town feel. They had the buildings decorated for Christmas, which I loved!

After walking around the square, we headed to Envolve Winery. They do not have an actual vineyard, but get their grapes from several different vineyards (many smaller wineries do this). So just a tasting room. At Envolve, all of their wines are organic and they even have some that are biodynamic.
