General’s Daughter

400 W. Spain St.
Sonoma, CA 95476

Whether you are looking for a picturesque outdoor wedding ceremony, rehearsal dinner or private event venue, General’s Daughter is the perfect location for you!

A beautiful, historic building surrounded by lush gardens and fruit trees, we are located at the base of oak-covered hills in downtown Sonoma. The 1864 Victorian was once the home of General Vallejo’s daughter and her husband, the founder of California’s first winery.

Our sprawling East Patio, with fireplace and vine covered arbor, is ideal for your ceremony or cocktail hour.  The wisteria covered West Patio offers a shaded location for larger ceremonies or dinners.  Step inside the interior and you are greeted with a vintage bar restored to its original beauty, adjacent to the intimate dining room.

As the exclusive caterers, the culinary team at our nationally recognized Ramekins Culinary School, Events + Inn will create the perfect menu for your off-site event. Their menus demonstrate their creative style and showcase the best of what Sonoma has to offer, including produce from their own 5th Street Farm where they grow the freshest organic produce.

If you can dream it, we can help bring your event to life!
