Napa is the next valley over but you may never leave Sonoma. The vineyards and restaurants and spas are second to none.

I am a local (20 minutes away) and don't visit the area all that often since I'm not a huge wine drinker. But was here recently and I forgot how nice and quaint/lovely it is in the Sonoma Square area. Cute little inns, nice stores and restaurants (Girl and The Fig was awesome). There are fewer wineries than in Napa... More

The overall environment is a relaxing experience, visiting the wineries and experience wine tasting is a great break from the fast pacing everyday life..

Endless fields of grape vines, numerous wineries, restaurants and hotels just fill the landscape. Certainly a destination not to miss if in Northern California. A car is the best way to get around but there are many tours from San Francisco and other cities that take you to the best locations to visit.

The Sonoma Valley has some of the most scenic views in Northern California and many superb vineyards. Lovely towns dot the landscape & a visit to town of Sonoma is worth the trip.This is also home to the original Williams Sonoma store which is small & charming.

Sonoma Valley is beautiful!! We visited many wineries in the area as well as shops and restaurants. The weather in the Fall was perfect - sunny most days and in the 60's to 70's. It's also easy to get to San Francisco or Napa from there.

We much prefer going to Sonoma Valley wineries over Napa. While both Napa and Sonoma have great wine, we like that most of the Sonoma wineries have a more personal experience, with lotsa family owned and smaller production. Many of the places are biodynamic/green farming which is an added plus.

If you only have time for one wine region make it Sonoma. It's not as busy or business like as Napa. People have time to talk with you. The wine is great and there are hundreds of choices. The country side is beautiful. The hotels are nice. The restaurants are delicious. Highway 12 between Sonoma and Santa Rosa has some... More

Charming little town. Great shops and food to be found as well as wine. We used Incredible Adventures for our Sonoma experience. Got to spend about 1 hr 45 minutes in Sonoma. Ate at Sonoma Cheese Factory and they had wonderful sandwiches.

This is a "paseo" you will enjoy as you take in the views. Wine tasty in is a must. Stop at the local produce and enjoy the nice variety of fruits and products that you will not see in a regular supermarket.
