taste marin

food, wine and travel



It is not a secret that Marin has a reputation as a place for the rich and the richer.

It is a known hideout for the hip celebrity class who have, or have had, homes hidden in the valleys, on the mountain tops and amongst the tall trees.

Can you keep a secret?

The food scene in Marin has quietly gained popularity among food and wine aficionados in recent years.

Food artisans have honed their craft to perfection and have gained many loyal followers.

Wineries? Dairies? Farms? Celebrity chefs? Marin?

Only one-third of Marin is urban. We like it that way.

Taste Marin travels the streets and backroads of Marin, Sonoma and Napa in search of great food, great wine and great craft beer.
