We stopped by Stonehedge at the end of our day. Lois (aka "Red") was AWESOME. We walked in, asking her if it would be OK if our dog came in. We had a great conversation with her and another couple who brought cheese to pair with the wine, while our dog sniffed around, living it up as each person he approached gave him praised and lots of love.
A must visit winery along the russian river wine road, the quality of wines and ambiance cant be beat. They also have a variety of condiments and sauces that are pretty tasty too.

Best place for a very relaxing, tranquil, and private atmosphere. We arrived during low season so that may be a key reason why it was so relaxing and quiet. MUST TRY: Napa Cellars Pinot Noir. Affordable: REALLY reasonably priced for the budget wino. The Menage a Trois bottles range from $7.50 to $12.00 a bottle if you sign up for wine club membership. They carry the newer vintages/types of wines that you wont find at the grocery stores.
Did a tasting and they were all very good for the prices. The Menage a Trois Cabernet is $10.50 and a very good table wine for everyday meals. I am not a fan of Mascato's generally but theirs was not overly sweet and it was more of a undertone verses dominating.
