The ritual of an afternoon Aperitif or Spritz is a European lifestyle that is taken quite seriously and allows us to relax with friends and family over a drink. The word apéro refers to both a style of drink (aperitif) and a time of day to celebrate the start of the evening.

Beyond the social and relaxing aspect, the Sonoma Spritz is a civilized way to chill and get ready for dinner by stimulating the appetite before dinner. The bitter roots used in an aperitif have been used for centuries to aid digestion.
