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.

Beautiful countryside drive. Towns are close together. Many vineyards to visit, big and small. This was our first time there so weren't sure what we were doing! The 2 vineyards we visited on the first day only offered us flights- one per person, which can start to be expensive. Be aware that some vineyards you can just try a glass... More

So many wineries, this area had the best Pinots...we are already can't wait to come back, we loved Napa, but Sonoma deserves a few days of its own.

About an hour from San Francisco the lower portion of Sonoma provides do it yourself touring by car that can be done for little cost. Visiting some of the wineries such as Cline Cellars and Jacuzzi Wines and Olive Oils will provide you with FREE tastings. They pour 5 different at each ( you could probably do even more..since they... More

Beautiful to drive around. Worth taking a drive even if you aren't going to taste wines. Very scenic and good for photos. Even in this drought, the wineries are green and lush.

Beautiful even for a day drive. If you're visiting San Francisco and want a quiet, warm escape from the city, Sonoma Valley is an excellent choice.

We took our time and visited only 4 vineyards in 3 days rather than the typical tourist experience of as many as possible. We received a passport to several vineyards as part of our BnB package that we used as well as paying for the deluxe tours as available. Well worth it to learn about the wine industry and vineyards.... More

What can I say? If you love wine and can't make it to Paris yet, Go to Sonoma. One of the places I love most is the secluded " Iron Horse Wineries. Make sure you check when they are open.
