To experience all that Sonoma County has to offer without hassle, fly into the Charles M. Schulz–Sonoma County Airport (and when you leave, check a case of wine for free with Alaska Airlines). Then head to your hotel – it’s hard to go wrong with lodging in Sonoma, but some sure-fire wins include the boutique h2hotel in Healdsburg or Inn at Occidental nestled among the majestic Redwoods in Central Sonoma County.
There are over 400 diverse wineries in Sonoma County, each brimming with Sonoma County’s signature friendly, down-to-earth approach to good wine. Some of the best include J Vineyards in Healdsburg, Ledson Winery in Kenwood, Benziger Family Winery in Glen Ellen, and Inman Family Wines in Santa Rosa.
There is, of course, much more to do in Sonoma County than just wine. For nature fans, try zipping through 2,000 year-old redwood trees with Sonoma Canopy Tours. Check out some amazing restaurants featuring delicious farm-to-table cuisine. Shop the swanky, hip boutiques in downtown Healdsburg on the Plaza with several tasting rooms and eateries all within walking distance of your hotel or bed & breakfast.
