About Sonoma County Tourism

Sonoma County Tourism (SCT) is the official destination stewardship organization dedicated to promoting overnight stays and creating a sustainable hospitality economy in Sonoma County, California.

SCT is a private, non-profit 501(c)6 organization, staffed by professionals in the fields of sales, marketing, communications, and administration. It is governed by a volunteer board of directors, with input from committees, stakeholders, and the general public.

The core values of SCT are strategic, transparent, collaborative, inclusive, entrepreneurial and trusted. These values drive our strategic planning, and affect decisions for sales, marketing, and operations.

Located 45 minutes from San Francisco, Sonoma County provides a genuine and adventurous wine country experience.

The hospitality and tourism industry in Sonoma County comprises one out of every 10 jobs and provides almost $150 million in revenue for local and state governments. This revenue is used for things like parks, economic development, cultural and historical festivals and events, affordable housing and other uses. (For more information on the tourism industry, see the statistics page.)
