Use the Official Sonoma County Logo in Your Marketing Materials

The "Sonoma County" brandmark was created as part of a branding campaign from the trio of Sonoma County Tourism, Vintners, and Winegrowers to increase recognition of Sonoma County as a place with premium visitor experiences, world-class wines, and abundant agriculture.

Life Opens Up in Sonoma CountyTourism-, winemaking-, and agriculture-related businesses are encouraged to adopt the brandmark and use it within the licensing guidelines to promote the genuine, authentic, and independent nature of Sonoma County's brand. 

Your company or organization can join other Sonoma County businesses using the brandmark for free to promote their ties to the Sonoma County brand, including: Santa Rosa Convention and Visitors Bureau, Fairfield Inn and Suites Sebastopol, Sonoma Canopy Tours, Osmosis Day Spa Sanctuary, Sonoma County Regional Parks, TWG BBQ Sauce, Costeaux Bakery, Woody's Wine Tours and more. 

To apply to use the brandmark, and for more information about the process, please email Marketing or call 707-522-5815.
