Introducing Sonoma Valley Wineries
Rolling grass-covered hills rise from 17-mile-long Sonoma Valley. Its 40-some wineries get less attention than Napa’s, but many are equally good. If you love zinfandel and Syrah, you’re in for a treat.
Picnicking is allowed at Sonoma wineries. Get maps and discount coupons in the town of Sonoma or, if you’re approaching from the south, the Sonoma Valley Visitors Bureau at Cornerstone Gardens.
Plan at least five hours to visit the valley from bottom to top.
