Welcome to
Fork & Bottle
Fork & Bottle focuses on our love of food, especially wine and cheese. We are picky about where our food comes from, how it tastes and how sustainable it is. We are always hunting for great, real food – not the stuff found in big supermarkets and chain restaurants. We care about what we eat.

Fork & Bottle also covers organic gardening, cooking with kids and, our explorations of Napa Valley/Sonoma County wine country. We welcome your feedback.

– Jack & Joanne

• The Restaurant at Meadowood in Saint Helena, CA, was excellent and showed us clearly that they are one of the very best restaurants in the Napa Valley.

 
• Rosso Pizzeria & Wine Bar in Santa Rosa has become our casual restaurant of choice. The food is always good to excellent, and there is a wonderful emphasis on local and sustainable ingredients. Bonus: The wine list features affordable organic and biodynamic wines.
