Located just 45 minutes north of San Francisco's Golden Gate Bridge and within easy access to four international airports – San Francisco, Oakland, Sacramento and San Jose – Sonoma County provides an authentic, adventurous California Wine Country experience that combines the perfect blend of sophistication and relaxation.
Sonoma County has more than 425 wineries, 25 microbreweries and more than 40 spas, as well as farm-to-table restaurants, a 55-mile Pacific coastline and some of the most fertile soil in California, and prides itself on embodying the organic, natural and deliberate life that typifies Wine Country.
From small, hospitable and family-run wineries to internationally heralded wine houses, Sonoma County barrels a type of wine for every palate. And what's more, visitors can immerse themselves in a complete range of experiences, from wine tastings, vineyard tram tours and vineyard picnics to cave tours, barrel tastings, wine-blending classes, paired meals and wine-and-chocolate tastings.
But there's much more to Sonoma County than its world-famous wine and food scene: the rugged mountains of western Sonoma County, where the Russian River flows past redwood-topped ridges, offers stunning views along California's famed Highway One. There are more than 50 state and regional parks that offer miles of hiking and cycling trails, horseback riding, camping, bird watching, or the opportunity to simply take in the region's magnificent views. So pick your pleasure: from the Mayacamas Mountains on the eastern border to the Pacific Ocean, the amazing redwood trees to family friendly beaches along the Russian or Gualala rivers.
Like the sound of Sonoma County? Good, because you'll probably like the sound of this, too. We're giving one lucky reader the chance to win a choice between a Sonoma County goody bag with three bottles of wine, a case of six bottles of Sonoma County wine, or an Apple Watch. All you need to do for a chance to win is answer the simple question below.
