January in Sonoma Valley can be quite
beautiful. The sky is often crystal clear, the air is crisp
and the country side green. Most wineries are always open as
well as restaurants and shops.
February brings more color, especially
yellow, to the valley as the mustard flowers cover the
orchards and vineyards, daffodils spring up in a cheerful
greeting and acacia start to burst.
Rain is good in March and what better way
to spend an evening, than in a charming bed & breakfast
with a glass of wine and a caring loved one. Cherry blossoms
are joined by other early spring foliage ...ah the Valley of
the Moon is beautiful any time of year.
This is the perfect place to go to feel the
wind in you hair, the sun on your face and a spring in your
step as you take advantage of all the splendor of the Valley
... a jug of wine, a loaf of bread and thou....
OK, Now is the time to get out of your
office, grab your honey (or your mom) and take a picnic to
Sonoma Valley. Wineries, jazz festivals, restaurants and
ballooning. Or, just go fly a kite ... its all here!
June is busting out all over the
Valley...the sun is warmer and the days are getting longer
and the celebrations and festivals are more plentiful! Take
Dad to the raceway and then show him some great wineries!

Markets. There is so much to do here in the Valley. Golf,

festival are just some of the things visitors talk about in
August. Come see for yourself what summer in the Valley is
all about ....bring your friends!
Harvest time in the Valley is very special.
The grapes dangle heavy on the vines, the sweet aromas of
the fermentation and excitement is everywhere. Wine
auctions, harvest festivals, antique treasures can all be
