Though Highway 12 can get a little congested, the beauty of the area you are driving through makes up for the annoyance.

On our wine tour of Napa and Sonoma, we stopped at one winery (B.R. Cohn) and the town of Sonoma (for lunch), as well as driving through this lovely area.

The Sonoma Valley is beautiful and offers many vineyards to visit while you are there. A California really should do, if not a most do. Fun in nature accompanied with delicious wine.

The old Sonoma I used to love apparently has gone the way of hyper-commercial Napa. Gone are the days of casually driving around, stopping at random wineries for a quick tasting and perhaps pick up a bottle or two of reasonably priced wine. Just a few short years ago (2019) the standard tasting fee if there was one was maybe 10 bucks per person on the high end. Now it’s $25 per person for what amounts to less than a glass of wine each. It’s the equivalent of the $27 beer at La Guardia airport, a complete ripoff.

Save your money and go to Oregon or Washington state, whose wines are equal in quality and taste (if not better at times), and are considerably less expensive for tastings and bottles.

I have had the great privilege of living part-time for two years in this lovely area, where the grapes grow ripe and delicious, the sun shines most every day, and there’s plenty of open space to see far and breathe deep.

I have been looking forward to driving through Sonoma Wine Country for a long time. While there were not as many grapes as I imagined, there were still quite a few. The area was dry and just a little bit hilly. I don't know what I expected, but it was a nice drive and interesting to look at the countryside.

Our family did visit one winery, but our focus for the day was to drive through the area and experience the beauty everyone raves about. And it did not disappoint. I guess I expected more views of endless manicured fields and onsite "factories", but I was pleasantly surprised at how much natural beauty remains, and how rural it felt. Roads are not super highways, and the wineries share neighborhoods with small businesses, not big factory farms . There are lots of hills and foliage, and of course, rows and rows of grape arbors dotting the landscape. It really is beautiful, and makes for a lovely drive, even if you have no interest in stopping for a tasting.

Our reservation for an accommodation in Napa was cancelled at the last minute (beware using Diane de Filipi for rentals!) and we had to re-route our itinerary which had us ending up in Sonoma (the town) and boy are we glad that happened. It really was fortuitous. Not only does Sonoma have all the wine country things, but the square is lovely, there's a lot of interesting historical stuff, and we found a cool greenway to walk (bike path) that passed lots of interesting things. And the neighborhoods in Sonoma are peaceful, walkable, and gorgeous.
