From the plains and wetlands of its southernmost reaches to its hills and mountains 17 miles north, Sonoma Valley is blessed with an incredible range of conditions that create a multitude of terroir. In fact, the valley encompasses four very distinct AVAs that yield an array of world-class varieties. It seems like every variety has a home somewhere in Sonoma Valley! So expect to find (and love) everything from Albariño and Barbera to White Riesling and Zinfandel. It is also home to the city of Sonoma, where you’ll find both California’s oldest commercial winery and oldest family-run winery.
