Each year at this time, the San Francisco Chronicle and its food editor Michael Bauer announce “The Top 100 Restaurants.” These are restaurants that are in San Francisco and the surrounding Bay Area, including the wine country regions of the Napa Valley and Sonoma County. Michael Bauer and his staff dine at a restaurant three times before it is evaluated and reviewed. For the wine country traveler to the Napa Valley and Sonoma wine regions, this Top 100 Restaurant Guide is one excellent method of choosing restaurants with great wine and food. Sixteen wine country restaurants in the Napa Valley and Sonoma are on the 2016 list.
