Out and about in Sonoma County Wine Country

story by: Inspire Magazine

For a holiday filled with delicious food and wine, make your way to Sonoma County in the San Francisco Bay Area. This regional gem produces some of California's best wines and will see you experience its many delicious grape varietals, breathtaking scenery, gourmet foods and much more.


One of the top things to experience in Sonoma is naturally, the wine! There are over 400 wineries sprinkled throughout the county, so explore them at your leisure or hop on a tour that includes the highlights. Favourites include; Francis Ford Coppola Winery, the Korbel Champagne Cellars, St. Francis Winery and Kendall Jackson Wine Estates. Not only are you likely to happen upon a new silky-smooth drop to fall in love with, you'll adore the surrounds, with green rolling hills and endless shining sun.

There are dozens of regional and state parks in the area, along with charming towns out in the countryside. Stop by either Cazadero or Duncans Mills and peruse their shops and galleries when you need a rest from hiking.

Nature lovers will also want to head to the Sonoma Coast, where you can dip your toes in kilometre after kilometre of Pacific Ocean coastline. Stroll the beaches, gaze at rugged and dramatic cliffs and if you’re lucky, you might even spot a whale or two out in the deep!

Between all these action-packed activities or restful relaxations, you're going to need to eat! Luckily Sonoma County is the perfect place for it. Try one of the amazing wine and food pairings at your favourite vineyard, or take a table at one of the many hotels or inns in the area. The food is always fresh with local produce being the go-to. Feast on organic veggies, creamy cheese, indulgent olive oils and only the best in beverages. Now, who’s ready to wine and dine?
