April is Sonoma County Wine Month

Every April Sonoma County Vintners hosts its spring iteration of Sonoma County Wine Month. As vineyards bud and come to life, spring is the perfect time to showcase the world’s most sustainable and diverse wine region, which is home to more than 60 varietals of wine crafted across 19 American Viticultural Areas (AVAs) and more than 425 wineries. For the month of April, Sonoma County wineries will be offering special in-person and virtual experiences as well as shipping promotions. Learn more here.

For easy planning, you can peruse a variety of Sonoma County Tourism itineraries built around your personal preferences. It may be a romantic weekend to discover Sonoma County Wine Country for the first time, a girls getaway to enjoy sparkling wines, or a family trip where kids can enjoy the outdoors and parents can enjoy the tastings. Lodging is as easy as a keyboard click or phone call, with our comprehensive listings and money-saving, amenity-rich deals — and don’t forget your Sonoma County Tasting Pass

If so many wineries seem overwhelming, start with a core group of 13 “wineries you should know.” Then, you can broaden your range with detailed listings, plus sources for top-notch guided wine tours.
Events offered during Sonoma County Wine Month include everything from in-person dinner series and sunset tastings to virtual experiences like private happy hours. The two-day Passport to Dry Creek Valley event is a delicious opportunity to discover some of the county’s best wines. And rest assured, you don’t need to be a wine connoisseur to participate — we welcome everyone to celebrate our unique and diverse wine region.
