Sonoma Valley is a wine-growing region, a culinary capital, a historic treasure, a natural wonder—and a state of mind. It’s an ideal destination for any season, for a weekend or a week, or as your headquarters for an extended stay in the San Francisco Bay Area.

From stately and historic chateaus to rustic country barns, wineries in Sonoma Valley reflect the spirit of freedom and individual enterprise that exists here. As diverse as the makeup of the soils and the microclimates themselves, each wine grower has found a unique way of coaxing the environment to yield the finest in flavors and styles of wines.

Long a culinary destination, Sonoma Valley today offers numerous dining choices, from casual bakeries and cafés to acclaimed chef-owned restaurants. Much of what you’ll find on the table is grown right here. In addition to fine wine, Sonoma Valley is known for its abundant produce and artisan breads, cheeses, and olive oils, available year-round at local shops, roadside stands, and weekly farmers’ markets.

Sonoma Valley offers an infinite variety of lodging, dining, and touring choices that will make your stay truly relaxing and enjoyable.
