The patio and farmhouse are still here, but now the menu at Corks might offer a spectacular pulled-pork sandwich made from a pig raised right on site and fed restaurant scraps, or maybe eggs Benedict made with bright-orange-yolked eggs that are collected daily from the chickens that patrol the vineyards. Don’t miss the crispy fries tossed with truffle oil, or the strawberry shortcake prepared with crisp housemade biscuits and dense Chantilly cream.
Organically-grown wines can be sampled in the Russian River Vineyards tasting room bar that operates now in the entryway. Taste a citrussy Sauvignon Blanc, a rare Old World Charbono, and an uncommon Botrytis Chardonnay dessert wine.
