Sure, this gorgeous region of Wine Country brims with luxury and well-heeled visitors, but we don’t flaunt it.
Private jets park next to convenient commuter planes at our airport, and it’s almost a guarantee that the scruffy looking guy next to you at the farm-to-table restaurant is one of the industry’s top winemakers, fresh off the vineyards from harvest.
Michelin-starred chefs shop right next to you at our farmers markets, and our cheese makers may have a little mud on their boots from tending their flocks, but their products grace the shelves of the finest gourmet markets in the world.
Hey, in Sonoma, that’s just our style.
