And he was so right....the Valley rolls out in front of you with everything really taking place on Broadway/Highway 12 (they are the same) towards Santa Rosa. A beautiful drive, you can turn around at Ledson Winery and head back towards Sonoma, and stop at all the places you saw as you zoomed by! The journey is the adventure here.... More

If you like Cabs: Go to the Napa Valley. But if you like Pinot Noir and Chardonnay: the Sonoma Valley is where you want to be. I enjoy the area between Santa Rosa and Healdsburg the best. The Green Valley Appalation Wineries are among the best in California. Take a drive on Westside Road. There are over a dozen top... More

Sonoma is breathtakingly beautiful, especially when it is green. The sense of having stepped into Tuscany is reinforced by the beautiful wineries, all different, but many that would not seem out of place in Europe.

You check into the first winery and recieve your wrist band that gets you into all the participating wineries. You get to taste the *futures* from the barrel that get bottled the the next year. Yummmmm....plus you get... More

Such a pretty area, hilly and green. The only thing is the downtown area closes early. So if you want to go take a peek around check out the hours for the restaurants and stores

We visited a few of the businesses around the square. We bought fudge from one store, chocolate from another one. We ate a delicious meal at the Red Grape. It was a delightful day spent in Sonoma.
