Twelve years ago, a determined Farrah started taking the steps to pursue her dream of owning a wine bar. After having worked in all aspects of the hospitality industry from front-of-house service to sales and distribution all across the US, she came home to Houston and was resolute on creating a successful wine bar concept that was also a positive workplace where people love what they do and do it proudly. Today her vision exists as Sonoma -- a wine bar that is as sophisticated as it is comfortable and warm. Farrah fits in the roles of mother and wife in between being a hands-on owner and getting dirty with any and all projects big or small. Farrah travels frequently to different wine growing regions, which inspire her wine list selections and food menu creations.
Matt’s mother will have you know that his calling as a chef came at the early age of 6. Hobbling on a broken leg into the kitchen, he asked if he could make himself breakfast (as he was just plain tired of eating cold cereal) and to her surprise cooked a proper scrambled egg. We’re grateful that Matt continued to pursue his dream of being a chef and went on to get his associate’s degree of applied science in culinary arts from the Art Institute. Matt brings an attention to detail and has high standards for the quality of the food that comes out of the kitchens at both stores.
