Description: Gourmet au Bay is Sonoma Coasts' only waterside wine bar. Wine selections are local, small production and award-winning. Try Wine Surfing(R) on the deck and watch sea lions, seals and a variety of birds playing in the harbor. We serve cheese and cracker plates daily. From time to time we have a caterer set up an outdoor kitchen and serve light dinners. On the first Friday of each month, we serve $1 oysters on the half shell starting at 4pm till they are gone. Our wine selection changes regularly. The three criteria we use to select our wines are 1) under 1000 case production 2) 90 points or better and 3) gold award winning. All the wines are from California (with a couple of exceptions). Gourmet au Bay has been in the business of wine tasting and "Surfing" since 1995. We look forward to seeing you on the deck!

Good selection and knowledgable staff. A nice upscale spot to learn a bit about wine and purchase what you need do your stay in Bodega.

Enjoy some wine and taste local cheese here. It's cozy and the view over the bay inspires conversation. Staff is friendly and helpful.

Although they are relocating in May, there is still time to enjoy the view from the deck with your glass or flights of wine. Wonderful, friendly owners. And once they move, they'll be closer to the water.

What a lovely relaxing way to spend a foggy afternoon! Excellent flights of wine, lovely cheese plate, and pleasant ocean views. Watched a couple of sea lions floating by, as well as evening bird murmurations, while sampling local wines and cheeses. Pleasant hostess and lovely gift shop items to peruse as well. Would definitely go back.
