Welcome to the premier wine country in the United States, Sonoma, California.
Synonymous with not only fabulous viniculture but also pastoral landscapes and dreamy spa experiences, this is a place of relaxation and healing. Foodies and Oenophiles alike flock here to enjoy the feast for the senses and each other as camaraderie abounds and lifelong friendships can be forged over a glass of Merlot.
Sonoma County is home to just under a half-million residents, many of whom work in the vineyards and attendant industries which drive the local economy and provides the main tourism draw. This is a place where city living is left behind, and a refreshing experience is guaranteed. Naturally, seeking out wine tasting tours or just taking yourself to different wineries is a key experience here. Other stops to try and make include farm-to-table dining opportunities, farmers' markets and the California Cheese Trail. Natural wonders also beckon such as Redwoods National Forest, Bodega Bay and South Salmon Creek.
