WINE BAR / 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 and diverse wines by the glass.  We offer unique reds, whites, rosés, sparklings & Champagnes 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!

TAP ROOM/ ESPRESSO BAR  / SMALL BITES       

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.  Come try a Nitro Stout Beer Float with local-made ice cream or a local non-alcoholic organic kombucha!  (Give us a call to find out what's on tap today: 707-938-7152)  FREE WiFi, too.

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!
