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.

We have been here other years but it seems to have gotten a new life - I have been told that Sunset Magazine is now headquartered here - not sure but something is different. There are lovely shops, a beautiful garden, a nice cafe with good food and is certainly a destination - buses were leaving as we entered! We're... More

This was a fun little spot that we had no idea about. There were quite a few little shops and tasting areas right within Cornerstone. The outdoor areas are beautiful. The wines were great.

Cornerstone Sonoma is the perfect way to spend a few hours. There are 4 tasting rooms, 1 restaurant, 1 hotdog and ice cream stand, various boutiques having clothing, leather goods, home decor, architectural artifacts, & gardening goods. Sunday brought live music and perfect weather. A great place to relax and enjoy the surroundings or shop around. I'm glad we ran... More

What a fantastic part of the world!!! Walt our fabulous Platypus tours tour guide took us there as our 3rd stop of our Sonoma trip. I could have stayed all afternoon. Great little shops, beautiful gardens and friendly tasting rooms!! Wish I'd stayed in Sonoma, not Napa so I could visits often!!

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. Someone is a genius in putting this together. And when we were there they were setting up for a wedding in one of... More

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!
