Things To Do

In Sonoma Valley, the fun flows as abundantly as the wine! But visiting Sonoma Valley is about so much more than wine. It’s also about diving into our rich history, adventuring in the Great Outdoors, appreciating the arts, dining on delicious local fare, exploring wineries and farms, discovering nature, and relaxing in our world-class spas. And yes, yes! Wine is a huge part of the Sonoma Valley lifestyle. 

Coming here in the spring? Kick off the season with the Sonoma International Film Festival, visit our state and regional parks for incredible wildflower viewing, and watch budbreak in vineyards bursting with yellow mustard flowers.

Summer is for adventuring, from ziplining through the redwoods and golfing at our public golf courses, to hot air ballooning and biking through the vineyards. Families love summer for cooling off in hotel pools, visiting farms, and discovering our historical sites. 

Fall is all about the harvest. Come watch the crush at wineries. Toast to the vintage and sample local ingredients at the Valley of the Moon Vintage Festival. Watch the vines change from green to solid gold, and don’t miss our annual Dia de los Muertos celebration.

Winter is Sonoma Valley’s best-kept secret. With romantic fire pits and hot toddies to keep you warm, you’ll relish the Lighting of the Plaza celebration, spa treatments, and endless opportunities for live music. Heck, you can even learn how to make your own cheese.

So slow down, kick back, and find out why locals call “Slownoma” home. With things to do for all tastes, you can’t go wrong, regardless of the season.
