The Sonoma region has a rich heritage filled with historic California character that dates back to the early 1800’s. It began when Russian colonists planted grapes along the Sonoma coastline.

This is located right off the world-famous town square in the city of Sonoma. Padre José Altimera claimed that the Sonoma Valley was the best site he had ever found for a new mission because it had everything he was looking for – fertile land, mineral springs, waterways, abundant game, and a mild climate. For the same reasons, today Sonoma is still cherished by many. By the mid-1800’s, several cuttings from the Sonoma Mission vineyards were taken to start new vineyards throughout Northern California. Much of this viticulture activity has been credited to the man considered "The Father of California Wine Industry ", Count Agoston Read more »

Dry Creek Valley, Sonoma Valley, Amador County, and even Napa get their fair share of attention, though just as often we tend to gloss over some terrific wine producing regions. I’m sure that on the whole my coverage of Zinfandel this year will be equally lopsided ... Read More
