Details on the 2009 edition of the Bay Area and Wine Country Michelin Guide were released today and, once again, the Napa Valley is very well represented.

Not surprisingly, Yountville’s The French Laundry was the only establishment of the 383 included in the guide to achieve a three start rating (meaning “exceptional cuisine, worth a special journey”). Here’s the breakdown of the other local restaurants included this time around (along with notations for our personal favorites):

One Star (meaning “very good restaurant in its category”):

  • Terra (a Cork Board favorite)

Two Star (meaning “excellent cooking, worth a detour”):

The Big Gourmand (indicates Michelin inspectors’ favorites for good value. Restaurant must serve a menu with two dishes and a glass of wine or dessert for $40 or less):
