Celebrate the first spring iteration of Sonoma County Wine Month this April. 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 18 American Viticultural Areas (AVAs) and over 425 wineries. Hosted by the Sonoma County Vintners, Sonoma County Wine Month gives wine lovers just another reason to celebrate the arrival of spring in Sonoma County. For the month of April, wineries will be offering special in-person and virtual experiences as well as shipping promotions. Learn more here.

For easy and safe 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 or phone click, too, with our comprehensive listings and money-saving, amenity-rich deals.
