Just-pried Hog Island oysters, freshly hand-rolled cigars, abundant local wines, intriguing conversation, a hosted El Coyote food truck, cakes nearly too beautiful to slice, a venerable winery venue — now this was a Sonoma party.

More accurately, it was the Sonoma magazine relaunch party at Sonoma Valley’s historic, 1857 Buena Vista Winery.

Hosted by principals of Sonoma Media Investments, the Nov. 7 bash premiered the expansion of the visually striking and lyrically written magazine that for years has reflected and interpreted life in Sonoma Valley. The new Sonoma magazine celebrates all of Sonoma County and its Wine Country environs.

The cookies and the collection of sweet, sweet classic sports cars alone made it a night to write home about.
