Sonoma California Wineries

Sonoma's soul is wine. It starts with the growing of the grapes, than goes to the harvest, on to the production, and finally, the enjoyment of the wine. Sonoma has created a culture based on an appreciation of nature and the finer things in life, and has produced gold medal-winning, world-class wines. This celebration of nature and the vine permeates all that is Sonoma. Each of Sonoma's best wineries has its own personality and taste. The town has a number of famous wineries and a variety of tours that allow you to enjoy several of them.
