WELCOME TO SONOMA COUNTY

SONOMA/MENDOCINO COAST

WEST SONOMA COUNTY

The Sonoma Coast has always attracted the adventurous spirit. Scenic Highway One winds up, down and around as you ride along this spectacular rugged coastline from Tomales Bay to Sea Ranch, Gualala and beyond. State Parks offer numerous opportunities to walk on the beach, climb sand dunes and rocks, and look for tide pools filled with stunning oceanic creatures of all shapes and sizes.

The Russian River Recreation Area is beautiful and packed with adventurous fun. From its mouth at the town of Jenner, the winding Russian River extends eastward through the redwoods and vineyards of Sonoma County. Each year, thousands of “River Rats” enjoy canoeing, kayaking, swimming, and rafting on the river. Navigating the Russian River is not a white water thrill, but a relaxing float through natural beauty.

Windsurfing, kayaking, and riding horseback on the beach are popular activities year-round in the region’s mild climate...or you can picnic and watch the sunset splash color across the sky and reflect off the waves.

Each small town in and around the Russian River welcome visitors for One-of-a-Kind adventures in shopping, dining, sight-seeing, wine tasting or a pleasant relaxing stroll. Sebastopol is booming so you’ll will want to walk the tasting tour at The Barlow’s breweries, wineries, coffee houses and cafes!

Wildlife enthusiasts bring their binoculars to catch migrating whales showing their humps and spouts from December through March and again through the summer. A wide variety of birds travel along the Pacific Flyway of the Sonoma and Mendocino Coast providing the rare opportunity to view Great Blue herons, egrets and hundreds of other species that take advantage of the County’s rich coastal wetlands. There’s always a reason to visit the Sonoma Coast and feed your soul.

NORTH SONOMA COUNTY The Wine Regions of Northern Sonoma County make for a grand vacation any time of year. Indulge your senses with the beauty of endless vineyard vistas, heavenly local flavors, and magical little towns where you always feel welcome. The climate is mild and each season brings its own unique color palate. Over 100 award-winning wineries, from famous names to back road treasures, offer tours and tastings. A springtime drive along wine trail roads will reveal a sea of mustard, wildflowers and budding vineyards in these dramatic valleys. Most wineries have delightful picnic areas where you may enjoy lunch in a classic wine country setting. Autumn is possibly the loveliest time of year for viewing spectacular colors. Harvest and crush typically starts in early September lasting six to eight weeks. The winemaking process begins at harvest, making it a very exciting time to tour your favorite wineries.

Year-round activities include hiking and horseback riding among the giants in Armstrong Redwoods, a preserve with more than 700 acres and thousand-year-old redwood groves. Kayak, canoe and boat rentals are available for cruising the river as well for fishing throughout the year. The Russian River Area is an outdoor paradise with spectacular vistas, expansive beaches and towering redwood forests.

S O N O M A VA L L E Y Visitors have been attracted to the beauty of Sonoma Valley since the Miwok Indians first discovered the healing properties of the natural hot springs which dotted the valley floor. The appearance of the railroad in the late 1800s brought Sonoma Valley within reach of Bay Area families, creating a golden era of hotels, ballrooms and vacation getaways. In the 1960s, this valley truly began to blossom when a now-famous vintner from a neighboring valley successfully challenged French Bordeaux with his California Cabernet Sauvignon. Today, Sonoma Valley attracts over two million visitors per year with its alluring historic charm, world class wineries, excellent restaurants, entertaining festivals and some very special events. There is always something fun to do in “The Valley of the Moon” and on Sonoma’s charming and historic plaza downtown.

beautiful lodgings and take in the magnificent Coastal views the question is “where do we want to eat?” With all this natural beauty, there’s nothing like dining with an ocean view be it inside or out (depending upon the weather) so here is the inside scoop. If it’s a great day, relax and watch the waves, the seabirds flying by, or fishing boats playing in the waters as your backdrop for lunch at The Tides, or The Boathouse, or even a drive up the coast to Rivers End for spectacular views and dining. Dinner time brings out the best in Sonoma Coast chefs as small seasonal restaurants like Terrapin Creek present their Specialties from local produce, seafood and meats. During sunset, or by night, it all makes the food and wine, the ambience and the company even more special.

SONOMA/MENDOCINO COAST DINING & ENTERTAINMENT THE BAY VIEW RESTAURANT AT INN AT THE TIDES in Bodega Bay is

where Wine Country meets the Sonoma Coast in a symphony of bayside scenery and fine flavors. Taste wonderful dishes made from fresh local products and complemented by an extensive wine list. ESTERO CAFÉ VALLEY FORD “As for sit down breakfasts, I can’t think of more than a small handful that can even begin to compete in the same class with the Estero Cafe. This isn’t short order cooking of pre-done packaged items... this stuff is too fresh for that. It’s almost ‘get smacked’ fresh and the fresh baked bread was amazing!”

At FISHETARIAN MARKET Bodega Bay, owner Shane has been in the wholesale fish business for over 20years. He can definitely be called a Seafood Expert and hand selects the “daily catch” each day, so come on out for lunch then pick some up to take home and share with friends and family! At GOURMENT AU BAY try the daily wine tasting flight in red or white with local cheeses with an ocean view. In Jenner, at RIVER’S END —literally at the end of the Russian River—you’ll be treated to breathtaking views of the coast while dining at this romantic restaurant. The chef designs menus to delight, with delicious cuisine that is distinctive and with flavors that are internationally influenced. TERRAPIN CREEK CAFÉ RESTAURANT is a casual neighborhood

spot where friends and neighbors can gather to enjoy great local and international cuisine while expanding the notion of comfort food to include dining that is delicious, affordable, and responsible. THE BOATHOUSE - A great way to get the full Bodega Bay experience is to start with some exciting sports fishing or a party boat tour. Then afterwards, you can chow down on the great fish and chips or BBQ’d oysters offered at their restaurant.

POINT ARENA


THE WINE REGIONS OF NORTH & WEST SONOMA COUNTY

ROCKPILE

Discover the beautiful Alexander Valley with its unique and superior wines. The wineries of this extraordinary viticultural appellation work together to share their special histories, timehonored traditions and smart innovations with visitors who come from all around the world. See Wine Regions page 5

Rockpile is the county’s newest viticultural area and maybe the most exciting as the sun exposure ripens red grapes to peerless perfection. Cooled by coastal breezes, the appellation’s minimum 800-foot growing elevation is above the fog; 95-percent of the vineyards are at more than 1,000 feet high.

CHALK HILL

Zinfandel, Petite Sirah, Syrah, and Cabernet Sauvignon do exceptionally well in this terrain that generates concentrated characteristics in the fruit.

The Chalk Hill appellation takes its name from its hillsides that are composed of 200 million-year-old volcanic ash. These offer excellent drainage and sunny exposures. In fact, its location is the warmest in the Russian River Valley, with hills preventing the intrusion of coastal fog. Chalk Hill was declared a separate, unique viticultural area within the Russian River AVA in 1983. For wine lovers, the appeal of the Chalk Hill region is driven by highly esteemed Sauvignon Blancs, powerful Chardonnays, and defining Cabernet Sauvignons whose grapes thrive on the tawny slopes. Cabernet Francs and Merlots also do well in this appellation.

R U S S I A N R I V E R VA L L E Y The Russian River Valley has a rich tradition of farming and is one of the premier wine growing regions in the world today. Winegrowers include both direct descendents of the Italian-American growers who established farms more than a hundred years ago, as well as many of the more recent innovators responsible for the rebirth of premium winemaking in the 1970s and 1980s. See Wine Regions page 2

SONOMA COAST

D RY C R E E K VA L L E Y The dramatic beauty and allure of the Dry Creek Valley encompasses lush vineyards that extend from the magnificent valley floor into the gently rolling hills, producing grapes of extraordinary quality and character. The natural advantages of an ideal blend of climate, soil, and exposure help produce the truly exceptional wines for which Dry Creek Valley is known, both locally and globally.

This AVA comprises more than half a million acres, stretching from San Pablo Bay on the south to the Sonoma/ Mendocino Pacific Coastline border on the north. A host of micro-climates are contained within this large appellation, parts of which also overlap with other Sonoma County appellations like the Fort Ross-Seaview AVA. Cold-climate, estate-bottled producers scattered across this area have over 7,000 acres planted, mostly above the marine layer and fog line.

See Wine Regions page 2

G R E E N VA L L E Y This appellation is a small designation contained within the southwest Russian River AVA. In the early 1900s, a Sebastopol newspaper editor coined the term “Goldridge” to reflect the booming success of the many fruit growers whose orchards thrived along the hills that run southwest from the Russian River through Graton and Sebastopol. Both soil and climate suit Pinot Noir and Chardonnay grapes, which are vinted into both still and sparkeling wines. Other varietals that do well here are cool-climate Syrah and Zinfandel clones.

K N I G H T S VA L L E Y The warmest of Sonoma County’s viticultural areas, Knights Valley is located on the hilly Mayacamas Mountain Range and derives its heat from its lofty perch on high hills beyond the reach of the Pacific Ocean’s influence. Cabernet Sauvignon and other Bordeaux varietals such as Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Petite Verdot are grown in the 2,000 acres planted to vineyards. Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Viognier and Syrah, also thrive in this climate of warm days and cool nights. It is among the original five Sonoma County AVAs to be designated in 1983.

Soils of the Sonoma Coast are rocky and well-drained, so cool climate, slow ripening varietals thrive here, such as finicky Pinot Noir, Syrah, Chardonnay, Pinot Gris/Pinot Grigio, Sauvignon Blanc and Viognier.

PINE MOUNTAIN-CLOVERDALE PEAK Pine Mountain-Cloverdale Peak is one of the highest elevation grape-growing regions in California, with grapes growing primarily at 1,800 feet and above. Soils are volacanic, gravelly loam. Valley vineyards are chilly at night, while high elevation sites remain relatively warm. Temperatures are also affected by marine inversion, created by heavy, moist, cold marine fog slipping beneath warmer air, trapping it well above the valley to grow distinctive Cabernet Sauvignon followed by Merlot. AVA Est. 2011

F O R T RO S S - S E AV I E W The Fort Ross-Seaview appellation in Western Sonoma County was established as an AVA in 2012 and lies entirely within the Sonoma Coast AVA. This “coastal-cool” region is located on the steep coastal ridges above the Pacific Ocean and the natural fog line, allowing for more sunshine and warmer temperatures than the surrounding, lower-lying areas. Perfect for growing Pinot Noir followed by Chardonnay.

Fortunately for revered grower-winemakers like Rochioli, deposits from the meandering Russian River, geologic plate shifts and volcanic eruptions created three primary soil types in which to grow their grapes—loam sandstone (Goldridge soil), clay-based Sebastopol soil, and alluvial soil along the river’s fertile benchlands.

“ C I T TA S L OW ”

(pronounced chee-TAH sloh) = “Slow

City” in Italian. In 2010, Sebastopol joined the international network of over 200 Slow Cities and wholeheartedly adopted the smart priorities of a Slow City. In doing so, the Sebastopol Citta Slow has become a catalyst for the active participation of the organizations you see on this page (and many more) to realize these priorities in their city as it grows into a conscious and responsible tourism destination. The six priorities of a “Slow City” (Cittaslow): • Support locally made products and agriculture • Celebrate our history and culture • Welcome visitors and embrace neighbors • Integrate technologies for improved well-being • Protect the health of the environment • Develop community-friendly infrastructure (walk ways, bike paths, open space and parks) Check out our website: www.cittaslowsebastopol.org LIKE us on Facebook: www.facebook.com/CittaslowSebastopol Sign up for e-updates: www.CittaslowSebastopol.org/newsletter

WEST COUNTY FINE ARTS, DINING & ENTERTAINMENT

W I N E TA S T I N G T I P S The first rule of wine tasting? Have fun! Wine is a complex and rewarding beverage, and tasting it is a very personal experience. These tips can help you make the most of it.

SIGHT Look at the wine in your glass, preferably against a white background. Check the clarity and note whether the color changes where the wine meets the side of the glass.

SMELL The wine has been in the bottle for months or years and contact with air will release its aromas. Swirl your glass before breathing in the wine’s bouquet. Identify the types of smells you sense— fruits, vegetables, herbs, spices or even flowers.

TA S T E Take a sip and roll the wine around in your mouth. Keep in mind that the sense of smell heavily influences taste. Decide what flavors you tasted and how the wine felt in your mouth. Was it tart or smooth? Did it feel light or big-bodied? Think about what foods would go well with this wine.

A DV I C E Plan for quality rather than quantity. A leisurely, attentive tasting at two or three wineries with a meal planned in between can give you a wonderful experience. Some wineries offer in-depth tastings if you call ahead to book an appointment. Whatever route you take, be sure to take your time enjoying Wine Country.

Welcome to the SONOMA VALLEY WINE REGIONS SONOMA VALLEY is the largest of four appellations in southeastern Sonoma County, with over 15,000 acres of vineyards. Also known as Valley of the Moon, it is open at both the north and south ends, which allows for the flow of cooler evening breezes. Soils are fertile and loamy with good moisture retention. Lead varietals include Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Zinfandel.

BENNETT VALLEY lies at the northwestern tip of Sonoma Valley, below three mountain peaks—Bennett Mountain, Taylor Mountain and Sonoma Mountain. With about 650 acres of vineyards, this is one of the smallest appellations in California. It has well-drained bench land soils, where a number of varietals thrive, such as Merlot, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and Syrah.

is bordered along the south by San Pablo Bay. The vineyards receive the cooling effects of the marine layer. Its climate compares to that of both the Burgundy and Bordeaux regions of France.

LOS

CARNEROS

Two types of soils predominate: the tancolored, marine-derived and calciumrich Haire and the blacker Diablo series formed by marsh sediments. Pinot Noir and Chardonnay represent a majority of 28 varietals grown here. Once a sheepherding area, Los Carneros means “the rams” in Spanish.

SONOMA MOUNTAIN is part of a range that runs along the western edge of the Valley of the Moon. Vineyards can attain elevations of up to 1,400 feet and are steep-sloped, composed largely of well-drained volcanic soil, with eastern exposures to catch the fog-free morning sun.

WELCOME TO NORTH SONOMA COUNTY

HEALDSBURG

The charming and historic town of Healdsburg is tucked between three gorgeous valleys: Alexander, Russian River and Dry Creek. The Russian River itself carves a sinuous border around the south end of town after it passes behind the forested cone of Fitch Mountain. Many of the names in Healdsburg reflect the people who settled here and built the town and its reputation into a thriving and friendly city. Healdsburg is surrounded by world-class wineries and boasts over 20 wine tasting rooms sprinkled within walking distance of the Historic Plaza downtown. The Spanish-style town plaza is rimmed with a fantastic array of shops, cafes, galleries, spas, restaurants and breweries as well. The natural beauty of this area inspires sculptors, artists, photographers and artisans from every genre. They show their work in exciting gallery settings around the plaza and nearby. In season, you can enjoy free weekly public concerts in the park or visit the downtown farmers market on Wednesday evenings and Saturday mornings. Healdsburg’s appeal stems from its friendly nature, proximity to outdoor adventure, rich cultural offerings and wine country flavors.

SANTA ROSA

The largest city in Sonoma County, Santa Rosa is an urban blend of art, culture, shopping, dining and attractions. Tour the home and gardens of famed horticulturist Luther Burbank, who introduced more than 800 varieties of plants, fruits and vegetables to the world. Beloved cartoonist and longtime resident Charles Schulz also left his mark on Sonoma County; you can see his Peanuts legacy at the Charles M. Schultz Museum and Ice Arena. Spend some time in historic Railroad Square with its stone buildings, visitor center, restaurants, coffee houses, art, antique and specialty shops. Santa Rosa also boasts over 500 acres of parks for strolling, hiking or bicycling. You can sail on Lake Ralphine at Howarth Park or camp, paddle and fish at Spring Lake Park, both of which are adjacent to Annadel State Park. Cultural arts venues include the Wells Fargo Center for the Arts, 6th Street Playhouse, Sonoma County Museum, and the Pacific Coast Air Museum.

WINDSOR

North of Santa Rosa you will find Sonoma County’s newest city, Windsor. It actually has roots going back to 1855, but was only incorporated in 1992. Early settler Hiram Lewis gave it the name Windsor because it reminded him of the wideopen English countryside surrounding Windsor Castle. Today, the Town Green Village of Old Downtown Windsor holds court over the expansive outdoor plaza and park. Stroll the retail shops, dine and wine taste to your heart’s desire. A year-round weekly farmers’ market comes alive at the Town Green on Sunday mornings and is joined in the summertime by a Thursday evening market. Also during the summer months, the Town of Windsor hosts Summer Nights on the Green—family film showings on Tuesday nights and outdoor music concerts on Thursday nights.

GEYSERVILLE

Geyserville, formerly known as Clairville Station, is a cool, historic town named after a man tracking a grizzly bear east of town when he discovered steam vents in a canyon. The name stuck and the geysers became a sightseeing attraction - who knew? By 1863, a stage line ran on a route between Healdsburg and a resort at “The Geysers.” Today, Geyserville is a colorful community and its environs are rich with wineries, B & B’s, outstanding restaurants, shops and art galleries. Cyclists love it, canoes can always be seen on the upper reach of the Russian River, boats on nearby Lake Sonoma.

CLOVERDALE

Known as the place “where the vineyards meet the redwoods,” Cloverdale is Sonoma County’s northern-most town and the jumping off spot for beautiful Mendocino County. You’ll find hospitality at the Wine & Visitor Center and throughout the historic downtown plaza. Enjoy a bevy of hometown antique shops, delicious meals, and for heaven sakes go have an espresso and organic pastry at Plank! Check the calendar for one of the many community events held throughout the year like the almost famous Fiddle Contest and Festival in January or the venerable Citrus Fair in February. There’s a genuine small-town feel to Cloverdale that recalls a simpler, friendlier time and place. Prepare to be transported back to a relaxed lifestyle that allows for fun and uncomplicated touring and adventure.

FINE DINING & GOURMET TO GO

F O O D & W I N E PA I R I N G

If the chef’s menu or a sommelier hasn’t already suggested a particular wine, try these guidelines to find a good match. Riesling, Sauvignon Blanc, and sparkling wines: salads, especially fruits and vegetables with vinaigrettes or bright citrus sauces; shellfish, trout, tuna, chicken and white cheeses; fried or spicy foods; “difficult” foods, such as artichokes and asparagus. Chardonnay: the characteristics of this varietal can range from fruit and citrus notes to buttery or oakey finishes, so knowing the style of the chardonnay will help. Good bets are stronger seafood (sea bass, salmon and swordfish); chicken; corn; stone fruits. Rosé and blush wines: especially refreshing on warm days or evenings, try these wines with cured or smoked meats, barbequed foods; Asian flavors; bell peppers, carrots, ripe melon, pears and berries. Pinot Noir: smoked (especially bacon); mushrooms; cherries.

meat flavors duck; wild

Zinfandel: cooked tomato sauces, mild salsas; barbequed foods; bacon, pork, sausages, beef and chicken; dishes with fresh herbs. Cabernet, Merlot and red Bordeaux-style blends: beef, lamb, wild game; rich foods (foie gras, gratins, stews); olives, lentils, eggplant, raddichio and greens like chard. Finally—for all varietals—keep in mind that sauces made with wine are best when accompanied by the same type of wine. Whether it’s a picnic in the park, appetizers at an event, or a special meal at a fine restaurant, raise a glass of Sonoma County’s finest and toast to the bounty of the county!
