This has become a busy thoroughfare from Sonoma to Santa Rosa, so be careful, especially if you are stopping at one of the many wineries along the way. I prefer the Dry Creek Valley or along the Russian River Valley since it is more compact...More
You cannot believe how may acres of vineyards there are in Sonoma. You must drive the 12 slowly and just take in the views. You do not need to drink any wine to become intoxicated with the countryside.
This small, spacious town is worthy of repeat visits. My first-time visit has had a lasting effect. Stayed with friends at a near by Villa. The shops, wine tasting, food, friendly surroundings made for an exceptionally relaxing weekend. Weather was perfect even on heavy foggy...More
The Sonoma Valley has lots to offer including just a beautiful place to drive thru between Santa Rosa and the town of Sonoma.
Plenty of wineries to stop and taste at. Some good retaurants as well, But to me much of the appeal is just...More
We loved coming from Napa Valley and taking the coastal drive along Bodega Bay into the winding roads right along the Russian River to our destination of Healdsburg! Very scenic, peaceful, and relaxing!
Sonoma valley is breathtakingly beautiful and famous for its vineyards.
There are so many vineyards and you can choose which one you wanna go or take a wine tour,
There are some free wine tasting places as well
From Fairfield, when one wants to get to Sonoma "quickly", Highway 12 looks like the way to go. We went on a Friday (5/3), and going West was not that bad at 10 am. It was a beautiful day, and we could see many vineyards,...More
We visited Sonoma last fall in October with another couple and had a wonderful time. We stayed in an Air B&B in Kenwood, which was a central location for our itinerary. We visited a variety of wineries and dined at several local restaurants, eating in...More
Girl and the Fig and Eldorado Kitchen are two of our favorite eating spots on the Square. Many tasting rooms close too including Sbragia, Kamen, Walt, and Westwood Cellars (all on the Square). Ravenswood is a short drive... More
Girl and the Fig and Eldorado Kitchen are two of our favorite eating spots on the Square. Many tasting rooms close too including Sbragia, Kamen, Walt, and Westwood Cellars (all on the Square). Ravenswood is a short drive. Quarry Hill Botanical Gardens are not far out of town either (on the road to Healdsburg). Many great walking paths here as well as lovely plantings. The road to the garden is littered with wineries including Arrowood and St Jean. As you go further north you pass many of the great Zinfandel houses including St Anne's Crossing. Enjoy!
