With over 425 wineries, miles of rugged Pacific coastline to explore, fantastic spas and towering redwood forests, Sonoma County is quite simply breath-taking. Combined with its close proximity to San Francisco at just a 45-minute drive to the north, it’s the perfect place to add onto your Northern Californian adventure.
Renowned for being a wine lovers’ paradise and the birthplace of the Californian wine industry, you’ll find amazing pours all year round, and the temperate climate and glorious rolling vineyards tucked between two mountain ranges make for a multitude of indoor and outdoor attractions for visitors to enjoy.
Sonoma County is about so much more than its vineyards though, and it’s brimming with a wealth of exciting activities. The rocky and rugged coastline is perfect for hikers, with 55 miles of shoreline to discover, 17 miles of which is taken up by the stunning Sonoma Coast State Park, whilst for foodies, there’s an amazing variety of restaurants serving everything from Michelin-starred cuisine to locally-grown wine country favourites. However you choose to spend your time in California’s top food and wine destination, Sonoma County offers something for everyone.
No matter the time of year, stunning Sonoma County is the perfect place for a visit. The moderate Mediterranean climate offers warm and wet winters, whilst the summer months are calm and dry. Perhaps the most popular time of year to visit is May through to October, and especially during the grape harvest in the autumn.
