Sonoma County, California

With more than 425 wineries, miles of rugged Pacific coastline, towering redwood forests, and its close proximity to San Francisco’s Golden Gate Bridge, Sonoma County is a traveler’s dream vacation spot in California.

Sonoma County represents the best of Northern California featuring premium wine, farm-to-table dining, unique resorts and spas, and over 50 state and regional parks. Breathtaking Highway-1 delights visitors with crashing waves, sea lions and otters sunning on the beaches, and fantastic sunsets that color the sky in brilliant hues.

A place where country roads are lined with vineyards, and a location that gives access to the very best Cabernet, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Zinfandel vineywards on the continent. Tasting rooms in the world-class Sonoma wine region range from simple and rustic to elaborate wine castles. So relax and indulge as you taste your way through Sonoma.

Defined by mountain ranges and influenced by its proximity to the Pacific Ocean, Sonoma enjoys a dry Mediterranean temperature perfectly suited to the growing of fine wine grapes. The long growing season is marked by sunny, warm and dry days followed by cool evenings, an ideal combination for allowing grapes to ripen slowly and evenly.
