“Discover Your &” Marketing Campaign Key Messages:

Aligned with Sonoma County Tourism’s (SCT) brand of “Life Opens Up” and the “Discover Your &” consumer marketing campaign, our messaging will connect travelers with invitations to explore the destination beyond the typical expectations of a wine and food destination. We will convey the intrinsic benefits Sonoma County offers visitors. Storytelling, which will lead with offerings and experiences, will enforce Sonoma County as a premier wine country destination while also showcasing how the region boasts a wealth of riches that offer “more than” just wine.

Use of the Official Sonoma County Logo 

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.

Tourism, 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: Visit Santa Rosa, 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.
