Quotations from articles written about Sonoma Valley.

“…the Sonoma Valley, where creative types find their muse and residents work hard to maintain the valley’s quirky, small-town character.” -- Amy Wolf, Sunset Magazine, January 2005

“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

“Head first to Sonoma, just a little more than an hour from the heart of San Francisco, yet worlds away in terms of pace.” -- Kim Westerman, Where Magazine, October 2007

“Whether your ‘thing’ is wining, dining, or spa-ing, this county has it all and it is a true embodiment of the organic lifestyle.” -- Scott Goetz, Organic Spa Magazine, Summer 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. It also has the most wonderful state parks which are simply made for hiking. It's one of the most beautiful places in the world.” -- Jazz Singer Cleo Laine, The Sunday Telegraph, June 17, 2007

“Unpretentious. Low Key. Rich in California history. This is Sonoma.” -- Kathy Chin Leong, Bay Area Parent, October 2005

“It’s no accident that this town in the heart of the wine country has so many great restaurants.” -- Robert Farmer, California Homes, September/October 2005

“The Sonoma Valley’s ideal climate and rich rocky soil also turn out an endless cornucopia of grapes and excellent produce, and award-winning local chefs use the fresh bounty to their advantage.” -- Bonnie Tsui, The New York Times, April 16, 2004

“Jack London chose a serene life in the Valley of the Moon as an escape from his urban roots; though the pace has picked up a bit, tranquility can still be found.” -- Bonnie Tsui, The New York Times, April 16, 2004
