About Sonoma County

Sonoma County is not just a special place to grow world-class grapes and make great wines: It's one of the most beautiful and resource-rich places on earth! 60 miles of pristine Pacific coastline and many other natural wonders are only the beginning of the story.

We are blessed with amazing diversity of foods and produce, along with chefs who take full advantage of Sonoma's bounty. Add to that our relaxed and friendly vibe and it all converges here.

Want to learn more about Sonoma County's rich wine history, Sonoma's 15 appellations, and other wine facts? It's all here waiting for you to discover.
