Every year for the past 3 years, we save every extra penny to stay 2 weeks in Sonoma. We usually make Windsor our "base," and drive around the Sonoma Coast, Valley, and of course to SF. Our children, ages 10 and 4 are already asking how many days until we leave. My wife is fighting a battle no one should... More

Vineyards are commonplace in this area but Sonoma has the very first historic vineyard with root stock that came from Hungary. This is the heart of the wine country because your heart will be filled with love of true beauty.

Sonoma Valley is absolutely loaded, north to south, with incredibly unique wineries and restaurants. Unlike Napa, they are not big corporate places. We went into one recently and actually met several family members that own the winery right there in the tasting room. Add in fabulous food, great hotels and BandB's, beautiful parks and a kicked back vibe and you... More

Sonoma Valley is a beautiful destination any time of the year except when there are races going on at the Raceway. The races bring way to much traffic. I believe the races are July/August. There is so much to see and so many quaint towns/cities so close by including: Calistoga, St. Helena, Sonoma, Yountville, Napa etc. If you don't mind... More

Driving thru Sonoma Valley is always a treat. Right now with all the rain it is starting to get green and is a totally different experience from the usual golden. Lots of wineries and places to stop and eat.

The Valley is a nice drive, being narrower and windier, worth to stop in Glen Ellen. Actually very worth to drive the side roads on each sides if one has time, even more authentic countryside with hills and views. On the west side ( warm springs rd, bennett valley rd, sonoma mountain rd, grange rd ) on these rolling hills.... More

This valley is lovely! Whether you arrive from the west or east, be sure to meander your way to the Sonoma city Plaza and enjoy a lunch in the park (toys for kids) and then continue on HWY 12 where you will feel as close to northern Italy as possible. The hills are rolling the wine is flowing the ambiance... More

I was unsure about visiting Sonoma valley but I am so glad I did as the place is beautiful. Went to three wineyards and each was unique and charming. Not sure how this place dompares to Napa but it gets my vote for sure.
