It may come as a surprise that a Sonoma County itinerary can be constructed without tasting a single glass of wine. Nature lovers flock to Sonoma County’s countryside for decades on well-deserved respites from the hustle and bustle of the city. An evolving roster of annual festivals and events provide a glimpse into a culture prized by locals. Foodies search high and low for indulgent local markets that specialize in scrumptious desserts and handcrafted charcuterie. Or, if you really must, hire a driver to take you and your friends on a wine tour.
