A Wild Hog Blog

Feb 06th 2014

The interesting thing about our vineyards on the wild and woolly Sonoma Coast is that we like them tucked away, our little secret. Not along some busy roads like SOME wineries we know. Our Wild Hog Vineyard is a small family owned and operated winery and vineyard (sadly no tasting room) in the hills between Cazadero and Fort Ross, in the new Fort Ross

Like to Hike?

Don’t let the winter blues keep you from going outside especially with this unusually mild winter we are having. If you have not hiked the Northern Sonoma coast you will be pleasantly surprised at the myriad of flora, fauna, trails and seaview vistas! TAKE A HIKE with our friend, Margaret Lindgren, master hiker, blogger and owner of “Unbeaten Path Hiking

Baby, it’s cold outside.

If you haven’t noticed, we are now officially knee-deep into the holidays with Black Friday and Cyber Monday behind us (phew!). This means we are fully into the festive season of holiday parties, hats & mittens, shopping, decorating, family, celebrating, shopping and even more shopping! A whirlwind of activities surround most of us this time of year and dare we suggest that

By now you know that the Sonoma coast offers some of the most eye-popping scenery in the world. You may have even discovered some favorite hiking trails, hidden tasting rooms and tucked-away eateries along the beaten path.

New Executive Chef William Oliver is busily updating our menu in Alexander's and being his creative culinary self these days.

To those of you who who attended the first Annual Vintage + Vino event held at Timber Cove Inn on Sunday June 30th, lucky you!  Picture perfect weather, vintage cars with a dramatic Pacific Ocean backdrop and wine pourings from wineries in the Fort Ross Seaview AVA including Annapolis, Flowers, Fort Ross, Hirsch and Wild Hog.

Take a hike.

I was treated to an amazing thunder and lightning storm show at Timber Cove Inn during my last visit. An amazing flashing, cracking lightshow over the ocean that was worth a few hours of lost sleep. My biggest concern was a 9:30 appointment that morning for a hike with my new friend Margaret Lindgren, hiker extraordinaire with "Unbeaten Path Hiking Tours".

A sidebar, on The Sidecar

Jun 26th 2013

As most origins of cocktails go, there are a few versions of how the Sidecar came into being. One story, as told by David Embury in The Fine Art of Mixing Drinks (1948), says that it was developed in a Parisian bistro during World War I by a friend who rode to the favorite bar in the sidecar of a motorcycle. Which bar this was

Ah...the 1960's.  Mini-skirts, and bell bottoms. Perry Mason and Peyton Place. Frank Sinatra and the Beatles. Don't we miss those days!
