Wineries in Sonoma County

Its amazing range of terroir and microclimates distinguishes Sonoma County, one of the most diverse and special winegrowing regions in the world. The Pacific coastline, redwood forests, fertile valleys, and mountains produce an array of exceptional wines. Sonoma County stretches from the Pacific Coast in the west to the Mayacamas Mountains in the east, and is home to almost 60,000 acres of vineyards and more than 425 wineries.

Within the borders are 17 American Viticultural Areas (AVAs, or appellations) – each with its own distinctive characteristics. The warmth of Sonoma Valley cradles rich Zinfandels and Cabernet Sauvignons, while the cool, crisp Carneros gives way to juicy Pinot Noirs, Chardonnays, and sparkling wines.

The Russian River has created a vast valley floor in both the Alexander Valley and Russian River Valley AVAs. Maritime breezes and fog are dominant influences for grape growing with cool-requiring varieties such as Pinot Noir to the south and west, and warm-requiring varieties like Cabernet Sauvignon and Zinfandel to the north and east.
