Our wine selection is curated by Certified Sommelier, Todd Jolly.
Todd has worked in wine distribution, wine production and supply and now as an independent retailer.
His selection is driven by hyper-local, small-production wines and remarkable options from around the globe.
In creating Sonoma’s Best online website it was not my intention to include every wine under the sun but rather to showcase the wines I have selected that, in my opinion, have great merit, though there is a strong focus on wines from Sonoma. The online website is an extension of the physical store in Sonoma, reflecting wines that I have assembled for Sonoma’s residents and visitors.
The honor of being voted “The Best Place To Buy Wine in Sonoma” can be attributed to the careful selection of wines along with pricing that very often is well below what a consumer would pay at a winery or its tasting room. Many of Sonoma Bests’ offerings are small producers with limited production and very little distribution, which means most are not available outside Sonoma County and, in some cases, outside Sonoma’s Best.
While I emphasize Sonoma wines, I also have a similar affection for Old World wines, especially the wines of France and Italy. I believe Old World Wines continue to impress local customers, including many local winemakers who are open to tasting and purchasing wines made in different styles than are found locally.
