Sonoma Valley Wine Country Planning Guide

Sonoma Valley wine region is in Sonoma County in the southeastern portion of the County. The Mayacamus Mountains separate Sonoma Valley from the Napa Valley to the east. Our wine trails will take you to the best and most interesting Sonoma Valley wineries. Sonoma Valley is where it all began for California wine. Visit three wineries in the town of Sonoma, each of which is over 100 years old. Follow their history to learn how wine came to California. Near the city of Sonoma follow the Valley along Highway 12. Excellent wineries and beautiful vineyards are on this route. Sonoma County is extensive. For that reason, we have divided the Sonoma County into Sonoma Valley and the Healdsburg wine region.
