This week we return to California Wine Country and select 15 newish locales that have been garnering serious buzz. This time around, we've been fortunate enough to consult with Press Democrat writer and Bite Club Eats reviewer Heather Irwin, who shares her picks for the hottest drinking and dining California Wine Country has to offer.
Among the map's offerings this time around is an intensely seasonal and locally sourced restaurant from an Ad Hoc alum (Backyard), some re-invented spaces that are hotter than ever (Three Squares, Cindy Pawlcyn's Wood Grill & Wine Bar) and a late-night bar that's a favorite with industry insiders (Speakeasy).
