Drove Sonoma Highway 12 from it's southern parts up to it's northern parts and into Santa Rosa. Wonderful, scenic drive. Yes, there was smoke from the lightening hits the week before we were there but it did nothing to obscure the beauty. Some wineries closed early due to air quality but there were plenty others that were open. We actually preferred this Covid time to visit - everywhere we went the establishments were super careful and not a lot of cars on the road, no crowds to contend with. We loved the Sonoma area!.

In this whacky time go to Sonoma. Most vineyards offer private social distance tastings. Your outside. Restaurants are open. It gorgeous. Your an hour from redwoods and an hour from the coast. They’re open and these lovely purveyors of grape deserve your attention. OMG I know it’s about the Pinot but the Zin is divine.

After a day touring wineries all over California, we ended inSonoma Valley, and I found myself impressed for the first time all day. Wow! What a beautiful area! Photo opportunities aplenty, beautiful California weather and fantastic area wineries. What a wonderful way to spend a day.

The old Sonoma I used to love apparently has gone the way of hyper-commercial Napa. Gone are the days of casually driving around, stopping at random wineries for a quick tasting and perhaps pick up a bottle or two of reasonably priced wine. Just a few short years ago (2019) the standard tasting fee if there was one was maybe 10 bucks per person on the high end. Now it’s $25 per person for what amounts to less than a glass of wine each. It’s the equivalent of the $27 beer at La Guardia airport, a complete ripoff.

Save your money and go to Oregon or Washington state, whose wines are equal in quality and taste (if not better at times), and are considerably less expensive for tastings and bottles.

We drove through on our own and found a winery that looked good online (St. Francis). Was even more beautiful in person. The wine tasting was great, as was the host, who was so full of information! The landscape of the mountainous wineries was beautiful, but honestly, Napa Valley was even more beautiful. If you’re coming to California wine country, surely visit both Sonoma and Napa. Both are incredible! We will definitely visit again next time when there are grapes growing. Even with no grapes on the vines, it is still beautiful and we had a wonderful trip!

Grew up in Marin, this neighbor to the north was always a nice weekend trip. The wineries proliferated, there is still much of the rural charm because of this. the southern edge meets the SF bay, through the town of Sonoma, past Boyes Hot springs and coming to a tight end at Glen Ellen and Jack London State park. Spent many an underage night with My bestie at The Three Nations playing pool for beers and winning almost all the time. Wines, hot spring spas, history and parks it's all here and nothing but small town atmosphere.

I have been looking forward to driving through Sonoma Wine Country for a long time. While there were not as many grapes as I imagined, there were still quite a few. The area was dry and just a little bit hilly. I don't know what I expected, but it was a nice drive and interesting to look at the countryside.

Our reservation for an accommodation in Napa was cancelled at the last minute (beware using Diane de Filipi for rentals!) and we had to re-route our itinerary which had us ending up in Sonoma (the town) and boy are we glad that happened. It really was fortuitous. Not only does Sonoma have all the wine country things, but the square is lovely, there's a lot of interesting historical stuff, and we found a cool greenway to walk (bike path) that passed lots of interesting things. And the neighborhoods in Sonoma are peaceful, walkable, and gorgeous.

When you visit Sonoma Valley, you'll definitely spend some time on the Plaza and visiting wineries. Plan to hit the Plaza on your first day so you can stop by the Visitors Bureau (beautiful stone building on First Street East side of Plaza) to pick up coupons for the wineries. Most wineries now charge $10 to $20 for tastings. The Visitors Bureau has lots of buy one, get one free coupons as well as some coupons for free tastings. Free maps too! Enjoy!
