The Beautiful Sonoma Valley

It's the people, it's the wine, it's the setting. This beautiful, picturesque 17 mile long valley is situated in the southeast corner of Sonoma County. Cradled between two mountain ranges; the Mayacamas to the east and Sonoma Mountain to the west, it is only 45 minutes north of San Francisco. Warm days and cool nights are perfect for growing award winning, world famous wines and setting the stage for the perfect vacation destination. The towns of Sonoma, Glen Ellen, and Kenwood are located in this popular getaway region.

This friendly valley is home to some of the oldest wineries in California where tastings and tours are available every day and where the person behind the tasting counter may be the winemaker.

The beauty of Sonoma Valley has inspired many artists and writers. Jack London who wrote "Valley of the Moon", spent his final year on his 800 acre "Beauty Ranch" near the quaint town of Glen Ellen just north of Sonoma. It is now a state historic park.

The shaded town square of Sonoma was established in 1823 and is the largest of it's kind in California. The square is surrounded by preserved, historic buildings, and landmarks, including former Mexican army barracks, 19th century hotels and the mission San Francisco de Solano as well as many boutiques, shops, and restaurants. This is the perfect place to picnic, stroll, read or just relax in the park like setting.

Best of all, the richness and the charm of the Sonoma Valley are authentic products of a special and rare life-style that Sonomans are proud to share with you.
