Sonoma seems much for relaxed to us than Napa. We liked the "less glitz". Someone in our tour group said, "Napa is for auto parts, Sonoma is for wine..."

I know everyone talks about Napa when visiting Northern California wine country, but my husband and I equally love Sonoma County. The wines are delicious and the more laid back feel is a pleasant contrast to Napa. Many of our favorite wines now come from wineries in Sonoma County.

Driving through Sonoma Valley is lovely. The wineries on the hills look out over the vineyards and there are plenty of wineries to explore.

If you love gardens and vineyards like I do, you will find that Sonoma is full of beautiful scenic views. If you live in San Francisco, it's a great place to get away from the stress of... More
