Wine country is such a wonderful place to be. My favorite time to go is after the hustle and bustle of "crush" and even sneaking in after Thanksgiving when the weather is nice but the crowd is non-existent. The Benziger Family Winery was a really neat experience regarding sustainable winemaking and biodynamics. If you run into a Benziger, such awesome... More

If you are looking for a great wine and ag experience, and you don't want to hassle with the crowds or the plastic people (not everyone....) of the Napa Valley, this is the place for you. The wineries seem sincerely happy that you are there, the restaurants in Sonoma are outstanding, and there is more agriculture than just grapes. Whenever... More

Beautiful road to travel anytime of the year. There are so many wineries to go to right from Highway 12. You do not have to go anywhere else in Sonoma!

Sonoma Valley, Sonoma, CA - in the heart of the California Wine Country offers numerous wineries to visit and have tastings, as well as lots of shopping, hot springs and many other attractions. A great place to spend the day or weekend. Lots of hotels and restaurants as well.

I've been to Sonoma many many times for multiple occasions. If you are ever in the area you MUST visit! Sonoma's welcoming vibes, unparalleled wines, exquisite foods are the most amazing in Northern California. The Chardonnays are to die for and the cheese, oh my! So many great events take place in Sonoma every year, and the harvest parties are... More

My daughter and I stayed at the Fairmont Mission Inn and Spa for my birthday weekend in late 2014. We were very impressed with the accommodations, the food and service, and most especially the entire spa experience. I highly recommend that you book a trip soon and take advantage of as many spa packages as you can afford to; yes,... More

This is one of our favorite areas in Sonoma County. There is a lot to see and do and we enjoy it so much, we are going back again soon! One of the most beautiful and relaxing drives you can take on a lazy Saturday afternoon!

Beautiful and a serious amount of wineries. Wine tasting does not mean "free" wine tasting. Go to the Farmer's Market in downtown Sonoma (the Square). Good times were had.
