You’re no doubt familiar with the trials Sonoma, Napa and Mendocino Counties have faced over the past week, and have seen images of the impact recent fires have had on some of the area’s beautiful terrain. You’ve probably also seen the selflessness of the first responders who fight tirelessly to keep Sonoma Valley safe from the flames, and whose perseverance assure that none of the region’s stunning wineries, hotels and restaurants are destroyed or left inoperable.
Many of you have reached out, offering your well wishes, concern and eagerness to help. And while for a short time Sonoma Valley couldn’t properly thank you with the warm wine country welcome it’s known for providing, the welcome mat is out now! The smoke is clearing, and Sonoma Valley is once again accessible to visitors – and even better, the vast majority of the destination is outside of the area that was damaged by the fires.
The Experience Sonoma Valley visitors’ centers reopen on Friday, October 20, as have the tasting rooms at the Valley’s wineries – more than 85 percent of which are family-owned. Sonoma Valley hotels and restaurants are awaiting guests, looking forward to showing their tremendous gratitude for your visit. Why? Because not only will you enjoy a wonderful fall getaway – during one of the loveliest and most popular times of the year – but visiting is the best way you can help Sonoma Valley recover and heal.
Sonoma Valley is open for business – as friendly, delicious and beautiful as ever – and looks forward to welcoming you soon.
