It is a region with a rich legacy in the history of our country, as well as an ideal travel destination for any season or a stay of any length. Sonoma Valley offers a cornucopia of stories about wine, food, agriculture, and the fascinating and passionate individuals who live here and are producing some of the best wines in the world.
Sonoma Valley is a wine-growing region, a culinary capital, a historic treasure, a natural wonder—and a state of mind. It’s an ideal destination for any season, for a weekend or a week, or as your headquarters for an extended stay in the San Francisco Bay Area.
From stately and historic chateaus to rustic country barns, wineries in Sonoma Valley reflect the spirit of freedom and individual enterprise that exists here. As diverse as the makeup of the soils and the microclimates themselves, each wine grower has found a unique way of coaxing the environment to yield the finest in flavors and styles of wines.
Long a culinary destination, Sonoma Valley today offers numerous dining choices, from casual bakeries and cafés to acclaimed chef-owned restaurants.
