Vacation in Beautiful Sonoma County, California


Unspoiled pastoral countryside, dinner beside the California coast, and award-winning Sonoma Valley and Napa Valley wines – all in one county!

Sonoma County is the quintessential wine country — sophistication and class without the attitude and crowds. Here, rolling hills and peaceful country roads weave through family-owned vineyards as well as nationally known wineries. At 1,604 square miles, Sonoma County is much larger than neighboring Napa and offers more diverse activities to enjoy. Relaxed and personal, Sonoma lies closer to the sea and farther from the traffic.

The first home of wine production in Northern California, Sonoma County is also still the nation’s largest producer of quality wine. Distinct wine valleys dot the countryside — Russian River Valley, Alexander Valley, Dry Creek Valley, and the Valley of the Moon — each offering its own flavors and varietals, including many of the world’s best-known labels and appellations.

Most of Sonoma County’s 400+wineries are open to the public for tours and complimentary tastings.

Just an hour north of San Francisco, Sonoma Wine Country is an elegant, but unpretentious, vacation destination. The county’s unspoiled natural beauty — vineyards, towering old-growth redwoods, the Russian River, and the rugged California coastline — are just the beginning. A haven for artists, craftspeople, and chefs, Sonoma County offers so much more than exceptional wine. During your Sonoma Wine Country vacation, visit enjoy shopping in local art galleries, shops, and boutiques, pamper yourself with a massage or spa treatment, and experience some of the best dining in the country.
