Sonoma — A picturesque slice of California Wine Country, Sonoma offers more than 350 wineries, spectacular outdoor activities, and numerous towns to explore. The region’s wine and food scene is on par with – if not superior to – the famed Napa Valley, yet Sonoma maintains a sense of laid-back rural charm that distinguishes it from the trendier and more crowded neighbor. 

Why Go

For wine that will excite your senses, whether you’re a connoisseur or a novice, and beautiful scenery.
