Wine Tasting in Sonoma County

Over 400 wineries, wine tasting rooms, and almost 60,000 acres of vineyards make up Sonoma County, California’s wine producing region, that stretches from the Pacific Coast to the Mayacamas Mountains. Sonoma County is home to 17 American Viticultural Areas (AVAs, or appellations), each having its own distinctive characteristics.

Being just north of Marin County, and bordering the San Francisco Bay in areas, Sonoma County is an easy wine region to explore from the San Francisco Bay Area. Featuring many smaller and family run wineries than it’s cousin, Napa Valley, to the east, Sonoma County is a very approachable region to explore for the just yourself, or with family and friends. Iconic wineries include Ferrari-Carano Vineyards and Winery and Francis Ford Coppola Winery.

Top restaurants include Madrona Manor in HealdsburgFarmhouse Inn & Restaurant in Forestville and Terrapin Creek Café in Bodega Bay. And hotel accommodations include the Sonoma Mission Inn and Spa.



A marvelous thing happens as you travel Highway 101 through the spine of Sonoma County. The scenic journey takes you through a collection of small cities and towns that appear classically rural on the surface. Take an exit off the highway, explore a little, and one discovers restaurants, inns and conversation of cosmopolitan quality, missing only the pretension and the price. One of these fine towns is Geyserville, just an hour or so north of San Francisco. It’s a great California countryside day trip for sightseeing and picnicking, and an even better place for an overnight or weekend stay.
