 LOUNGE INFO & MONTHLY EVENTS

WINE LOUNGE (21 & Up ONLY)

Whether you are local to Sonoma, or visiting from afar, we invite you to stop by The Panel, to taste our delicious, diverse wines by the glass.  We offer unique red, white, rosé, sparkling & Champagne daily. 

Our lounge was created for comfort - made to feel as if you are relaxing in a friend's living room. It is a space where we encourage wine lovers of all expertise to come together to experience new, exciting and totally unique wines from around the world. We will try to accomodate whatever small-bite flavor notes you seek, beautifully paired with your glass or bottle!

Like wine, but LOVE unique beer or crave quality espresso?  We also offer distinctive craft brews on tap & in bottle PLUS San Francisco's Wrecking Ball Coffee Roasters espresso, as well as unique and unexpected "small bites" (and "sweet bites") to accompany your libation of choice - beer & coffee snobs welcome.  (Give us a call to find out what's on tap today: 707-938-7152)  FREE WiFi, too.

WINE / CHAMPAGNE SHOP  

The Panel's highly-curated retail wine & champagne shop features distinctive local wine, as well as wine from all over the globe with an abundance of approachable, limited production wine (as well as fabulous [often allocated] grower Champagne) from France, Italy, and other notable wine growing regions from Argentina to New Zealand! 

CELEBRATE ANYTHING... RESERVE Space or Host a Party

At The Panel, we love to celebrate YOU!  Assemble your group of eight (8) or more on our porch or in our main lounge areas: Just call ahead and let us know the size of your party and when you're coming over. We will reserve your space, chill your wines of choice, and make your afternoon or evening a special one!  (NOTE:  We do not accept Friday reservations, unless it is a private booking for the Tasting Loft or Mini Lounge).
