The Sonoma Botanical Garden is a woodland experience where East meets West. Celebrating the beauty and importance of Asian and California native plants, this former quarry is home to a 25-acre Asian woodland garden, 22 acres of California native oak savanna, and a small Cabernet vineyard. Whether hiking up to expansive winter vistas, enjoying a leisurely walk through spring blooms, finding the perfect picnic spot in a shady summer oasis, or marveling at the riot of fall colors and textures, the Garden always offers delights for the senses. A different experience – every season, every time, for everyone.

Founded in 1987, the Sonoma Botanical Garden is deeply rooted in a love for biodiversity and commitment to nature conservation with meandering gravel trails throughout the Asian garden that welcome guests to immerse themselves among the trees.

Magnolia Magic

Winter brings magnolia magic as some of the rare and endangered species bloom at the Garden. These wild-collected magnolias are a bit different than the magnolias you’ll see elsewhere.
