ABOUT SONDRA BERNSTEIN
Sondra is the founder of the girl & the fig in Sonoma, the fig café & winebar in Glen Ellen, and a unique event space in Sonoma known as Suite D with a full-service catering company. She is the author of the girl & the fig Cookbook and Plats du Jour: the girl & the fig’s Journey through the Seasons in Wine Country and was a co-host of The Bite Goes On podcast talking about all things food. In addition to these businesses, The Sonoma FIG Foundation Fund was established in December of 2016. The Fund offers grants to nonprofit organizations that help startup entrepreneurs with funding in food, farming, food media, wine and spirits, restaurants, artisanal food production or new projects for existing businesses.

Over the past twenty-four years the girl & the fig has made its mark in Wine Country and has been a longtime favorite for both locals and visitors to the area. In 2012, Sondra was celebrated as “Person of the Year”, alongside partner John Toulze by Hospice du Rhône, an international vintners association at their 20th anniversary event for their commitment to promoting Rhône wines. In 2016, she received the Lifetime Achievement award from The Rhône Rangers for the same efforts.

One sure thing that can be said about Sondra Bernstein is that, as an authentic Restaurateur, her restaurants were created as a true expression of her personality. Sondra stepped back from operations last year to revisit her passion for the arts. She is spending her time creating digital art, AI collage, building in the metaverse and curating art exhibits for artists all over the world.
