Oh, not since Trillium's lamented departure from Petaluma Boulevard's restaurant row had I swooned upon entry point in a florists shop. Not until I stumbled upon an introduction to Tesoro, tucked away in a stunning barn-like structure of a super-stylish-meets-rustic retail spot inside the nine-acre Cornerstone wonderland that sits at the gateway to wine country, on Arnold Drive, just outside of Sonoma.
I couldn't hold on any longer to these gorgeous shots, taken in a flash, on-the-go, during my first look-in at Tesoro, since its relocation from Saint Helena. I'll be writing about an enchanting visit to Cornerstone, in the next couple of days. A rainy day's outing was blessed by the briefest two hours of sunshine amidst the sorts of slate grey cloudy skies that, when contrasted against Spring colors of the vineyards and mountains, beyond, made me catch my breath with the beauty of it all.
The talented designers at Tesoro make frequent forays over the hill for Petaluma deliveries.
P.S. I heard on good authority that they and lots of other folk of fine taste over at Cornerstone consider their neighboring Petaluma as the hub of all things currently happening in the food, wine, art and and style scene, here in the North Bay. Kudos for the south county which doesn't typically seek the limelight in comparison to more regionally celebrated tourism attractors.
