Midsummer in Sonoma County, California, means long, warm days, and temperate evenings. While the vineyards bask in sunshine, the redwood forest provides shade along the Russian River and, out at the coast, cool breezes offer respite from inland heat.
New things in Sonoma Wine Country include a wine festival in the Petaluma Gap, a distillery that joins the burgeoning ranks of distillers in Sonoma County (home to 20 percent of all California’s craft distilleries), a vintage bank reborn as chic arts and event center in the western county enclave of Guerneville, and a new company dedicated to the perfect wedding along the romantic Sonoma Coast.
Read on for all the new things that shine in the summer sun in Sonoma Wine Country, just 30 miles north of San Francisco.
