Just 45 miles north of San Francisco is the quaint town of Sonoma. Its colonial-era plaza –– the largest in the Golden State, –– encompasses a variety of shops, more than 25 bars and restaurants, as well as an historic California Mission.
The Valley of The Moon’s rolling hills are enchanting and inviting. Its warm to hot summer days and cool nights are perfect for growing grapes across more than 100 wineries, tasting wine, quaffing beer at local breweries, and eating Sonoma Jack Cheese.
Its friendly rivalry with a neighboring well-known county launched a T-shirt that reads “Sonoma makes wine. Napa makes auto parts.” If a laid-back country lifestyle with a highly sought Sonoma address appeals to you, let me show you one of the towns I know best.
