Sonoma County Tourism

Sonoma County has long been a leader in the way of eco-consciousness, environmental protection, and sustainability, and was home to many innovators – author Jack London pioneered many of the principles that form the foundation of organic farming today, and famed horticulturist Luther Burbank had a goal to increase the world’s food supply by manipulating the characteristics of plants. In 1875, Burbank wrote, “I firmly believe, from what I have seen, that this is the chosen spot of all this earth as far as Nature is concerned.” The words still ring true today.

Today, Sonoma County continues to be rooted in the land that grows organic wine grapes, produce, and livestock. It’s anchored to the bountiful Pacific Ocean that offers up sustainably caught seafood. Every bite gives you a taste of this rich destination that has depth and complexity.

And, as wine is clearly central to any Sonoma County travel experience, the region is recognized as the world’s most sustainable wine region. Sonoma County Winegrowers’ sustainability program helps preserve agriculture and multi-generational family farms.

Sonoma County businesses do more than just provide visitors with welcoming hospitality, farm-fresh dining, luxurious accommodations, and one-of-a-kind attractions. These businesses support local communities and nonprofits by donating time, in-kind gifts, and cash donations, totaling around $45 million annually. Visiting a local restaurant, brewery or attraction supports much more in the community.

Sonoma County not only inspires you to uncover new experiences, but it will inspire you to uncover something new within yourself. A fresh sense of adventure. A renewed connection to nature. And maybe even a rejuvenated approach to living life, which in turn, will inspire others to come and seek out the same. Sonoma County is meant to be savored and enjoyed over time.
