My wife and I were looking for a cooking class in the heart of wine country and lucked into a sit-down dinner version with renowned chef John Ash, who was literate, charming and skilled at managing the 12-person class. Ramekins B&B was a convenience--it is in the same building-- but turned out to be a pleasant surprise. For a self-labeled B&B it has a corporate feel in the best sense, which means strong central air-conditioning, spotlessly clean, ultra modern bath and fixtures, and approximately six large, sometimes terraced rooms within a ten minute walk of Sonoma Square. It was professionally managed and satisfactory in every way. Naturally it lacks services and amenities one finds at a genuine hotel; you must carry your bags (elevator to second floor), and eat a breakfast of high-quality, home-made granola, baked goods, fruit and coffee/tea, self serve only. But that is what a B&B is meant to be in these parts, and the room was lovely. We stayed in room number one, which appeared to be the second largest, without terrace. We had a chance to take a gander in other rooms which were being serviced as we checked in and found room number six the nicest, with terrace. Highly recommended, a good jumping off point for wine tasting and culinary adventures in the region.
