Long known as one of California’s top culinary destinations, Sonoma Valley has been home to some of food cultures most recognizable names. Famed food writer M.F.K. Fisher wrote lovingly about Sonoma Valley and its food, Chuck Williams founded Williams-Sonoma and opened his first shop just off the Sonoma Plaza, and the legacy of Ig Vella, world-class cheese maker, has lived on at Vella Cheese Company since 1931.
