“Vine-strewn rolling hills combined with a network of rail-to-trail bike paths and off-the-beaten-track back roads have solidified the region as a destination for cyclists as well as oenophiles.” -- Jessica Merrill, Shape Magaine, September 2007

“Sonoma is about an hour's drive from San Francisco, which, of course, is famous for its fogs - but however foggy San Francisco might be, the sun invariably comes out as you approach Sonoma: it's so close, but it boasts a completely different climate.
