Sonoma County

A wine lover's Eden


Sonoma County marks the birthplace of California's wine industry and also the closest to San Francisco – just 30 miles away. Located between the Sonoma and Mayacamas mountain ranges you'll find nine square miles of beautiful rolling vineyards, small farms and scenic parkland to explore. Sonoma has plenty of well-preserved historical sites around its Spanish-style plaza and many of the adobe buildings house wine shops, boutiques and excellent restaurants.

There is no shortage of activities on offer, be it kayaking around the gorgeous Bodega Bay, hopping on a bicycle and exploring the great redwoods or some when-in-Rome Californian surfing. If a laid-back approach appeals more, there are over 400 world-leading wineries for you to enjoy, while Michelin-starred restaurants compete for your attention with authentic taco trucks with hand-me-down recipes kept secret in the family for generations. Farm-to-table food is a draw throughout the county, while the vineyard's hospitality is such that no-appointment tours and tastings are the norm, rather than the exception.
