Fine Dining

SingleThread is a source-focused, farm-driven restaurant and inn concept that offers its diners and guests time-honored preparations of seasonally inspired cuisine and a uniquely curated taste of Sonoma Wine Country. The concept was born out of Kyle and Katina Connaughton's Southern California upbringing as well as their extensive international travels and experiences living and cooking abroad in both the UK and Japan. Our foundation is rooted in the Japanese concept of 'omotenashi', a heightened sense of hospitality and anticipation of a guest’s every need. For us, the relationship between farmer and chef is more than a side story; it is the heart of the experience.
