This was a high point of our trip to the Napa and Sonoma area. Not only is the art work interesting in a garden setting, but there is a group of unique shops and a restaurant option.

This is a must stop for when you're driving up to Sonoma. It's right off the freeway and there's the Sonoma visitor center there along with a handful of cute boutique shops. There's only one eatery/restaurant and a few spots for wine tasting from local wineries. I find that their garden (by Sunset Magazine) is the main attraction. The garden... More

Cornerstone Sonoma has many shops selling a wide variety of items from soap and candle to massive architectural elements. There are also some dining options and then there is the wonderful Cornerstone Gardens - a display garden by Sunset Magazine. We spent a delightful several hours strolling through the shops and then enjoying the numerous gardens in Cornerstone Gardens.

Nice little spot to stop. There are several wine tasting rooms here and we'll as some shops and place to eat! It's cool that you can bring your wine from the tasting rooms around even into the cafe! Very well kept and clean bathrooms!

I visit the gardens whenever I'm in Sonoma. They are so well done, beautiful and peaceful. The sculptures hold the biggest attraction for me. I love the big chair. The restaurant serves good coffee and the menu selections look delicious.

This is one of the spots I make sure to take guests who are visiting California. Beautiful weather, lush gardens, outdoor architecture, good food at the cute little cafe, unique items at the stores, wine tasting - a visit here makes everyone happy. It's also a fun place to take kids - they can run somewhat wild through the outdoor... More

Depending on what exhibits are in the garden this can be a neat place to walk through for a quick minute, it's in a pretty area. The lady at the visitors center was really nice. Wasn't super impressed or interested in any of the businesses, this whole place is kind of weird. Always was curious when going to Gloria Ferrer,... More

The gardens have lost some of it's ambiance and elements of surprise when demolishing for the upcoming Sunset Demonstration Gardens.
