West of the west on the delicious margin. Atop the westernmost ridges of the larger Sonoma Coast appellation, this is cool-climate wine growing territory. Over the winter we ventured afield with winemaker Andy Peay to a potential dinner site on vivid green forested slopes a few miles from the Pacific Ocean. It’s stunningly beautiful here. This may be the most scenic view of any table site of the 2017 OITF season. Guest Chef Hiroo Nagahara describes his style as modern kaiseki – scenic, ingredient-driven cuisine in which every dish has a story. He is driven by the challenge of taking an ingredient of the highest quality from Mother Nature and transforming it into something greater without destroying its purity. We will sip and savor the substance and purity of West Sonoma.
