So much to do besides wine.Really enjoyed the many state parks. The tour of the Jack London park and home was very enlightening and impressive. Enjoyed Glenn Ellen especially.

We enjoyed the Sonoma Valley so much more than the Napa Valkey. It is much more quiet for one thing. There are many wineries for tours and tastings if that is what you want, but there are also lovely places to drive ( go on up the Shoreline Highway) or to hike. We really enjoyed the Jack London State Park... More

This is the only region where one... More

Yes, touristy but also preserved the "western" feeling. Historic buildings, some nice and some touristy shops and plenty of places to taste wine and eat.

One of the most beautiful places on earth, especially in the spring. The thousands of roses in town are awesome,mand the many winery's are very friendly with excellent wine, without the Napa crowds. The Jack London State Park is a must see.

really pretty place to drive through in the Spring. The lush green rolling hills -- be sure to take your time driving through. It is definitely more that just wine.

I returned, after many years, to Buena Vista Vineyard winery, which is the oldest in California, I believe. It's a beautiful, remotely placed property with lovingly restored buildings and a very friendly staff, not to mention some very palatable wines!

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
