After reading the Sunset Magazine article on the new Cornerstone location in Sonoma, we were expecting a buzzing vibrant marketplace with shops and really amazing gardens. However, none of that was evident the day we visited. It is true is was in the middle of the week after a rain storm, but still the gardens seemed uninspired with tired, if... More

First off, visiting is free and there is ample parking. You can wander through the extensive Sunset test gardens and then check out the shops, tasting rooms and restaurants. We had just come from breakfast so didn't eat or drink anything although the restaurant looked really nice and there was lots of shaded outdoor seating. There were a number of... More

My garden group visited Cornerstone on a lovely Thursday in September. It's a charming set up, with a restaurant, wine tasting room, several interesting shops (gifts, clothing, florist/garden, home accessories, garden arts, a limoncello tasting room), and very inspiring gardens. Would love to see them add an art gallery for local artists. So nice to park the car and just... More

Great place to see some landscape designs and grab some ideal for your own yard design. Couple art and craft stores are at this site which you can even grab some ideal to decorate either your garden or house. They have wedding setting at this site and outdoor taste kitchen. However at some garden area looked like it was unkept.

Sunset has speciality gardens in the back of the property. Most plants are marked. It was pleasant walking around and getting ideas. This property will be easier to get to than menlo park for sunset events. The shopping area has french antiques and a fascinating store of recycled, repurposed items. A few wine tasting rooms and a distillery with excellent... More

We were attracted to Cornerstone Sonoma because the Sonoma Visitor Information Center is located there, but we found a wonderful collection of wineries, shops and a beautiful garden. We also enjoyed lunch at Park 121 while there. I had the empanadas and they were very good. The gardens were a delight and we enjoyed taking time to walk through and... More

What is happening with the older gardens they are getting pretty dismal. All are looking pretty old and unkept. If it wasn't for the Sunset gardens it is very disappointing

Fantastic gardens. Not to be missed if in the area. Great little shops and cafe. Just past Cline Cellars. We had empanadas which were excellent. Nice outdoor seating

The “Sunset Demonstration Gardens” have arrived with five individual areas including the “Backyard Orchard”, “Cocktail Garden”, “Farm Garden”, “Gathering Space” and an “Outdoor Test Kitchen” area. These spaces are colorful, inviting and professionally created. Unfortunately they lack the creativity of an artist’s inspiration & magic that the original garden spaces contain. Comparatively small in size, this installation rivals many of... More

We were looking for a place to eat and were referred to this place. We were surprised with what they offer. Lunch was great that can be shared. The gardens were marvelous and it made for a relaxing two hour layover before heading to other attractions in Sonoma.
