Spring opens up in Sonoma County

April 1, 2019 Visit California No Comments Email Email

Riotous colors paint the landscape, enviable weather takes hold, hotels offer special rates, and unique events all beckon visitors to visit Sonoma County in the spring.

It’s time to shake off the winter doldrums and enjoy the outdoors: Gardens are in bloom — stop and smell the roses at Russian River Rose Company. Bud break is happening right now in the vineyards, signaling the start of the 2019 vintage; take a Vineyard Adventure, a free self-guided vineyard tour, for an up-close look.

Wildflowers of every color, shape, and fragrance carpet parks and open spaces throughout the county. Several wineries offer tours through their gardens, which means there’s a taste of wine at the end of your stroll.

Take several days to explore this world-renowned wine country without the summer crowds. Wineries offer behind-the-scenes tours, and you may discover your tasting room attendant is the winemaker. The Pacific coastline is also in season: Fishing fleets are active with Dungeness crab season. The whales are migrating and there are several overlooks to see them.

And then there’s Earth Day. The more than 60 parks found here are always in season. Discover a new trail that meanders along the Russian River. Go on a high-octane hike up a mountain trail. Soar through the redwoods on a zip line excursion. Or find a quiet, natural place to just sit and breathe.

Sonoma County celebrates this ode to Mother Earth with hikes, lectures, festivals, volunteering clean-ups, and more. Take a What’s in Bloom Walk through Quarryhill Botanical Gardens. Encounter Blossoms, Bees, and Barnyard Babies during Farm Trail’s spring tour. Search for Earth Day events at

Several inns and B&Bs, GO-Sonoma Wine Country Lodging affiliates, are offering a Wine Country Romance Package. Gaige House + Ryokan, in Glen Ellen, offers travelers a Wine Country Uncorked stay. Stay at the Fairmont Sonoma Mission Inn & Spa and get the third night free. Book the Rejuvenation Inn & Spa Package at Inn at Occidental, which includes a cedar enzyme bath at the acclaimed Osmosis Day Spa Sanctuary. Lounge by the iconic pool at the Flamingo Resort and Spa when you take advantage of the Spring Break Rate Special. Though it’s the beginning of the grape-growing season, you can “harvest” cost-saving deals on lodging, attractions, and wine tasting throughout the spring season. Check out

Sonoma County not only inspires you to uncover new experiences — it will inspire you to uncover something new within yourself. A fresh sense of adventure. A renewed connection to nature. And maybe even a rejuvenated approach to living life, which in turn, will inspire others to come and seek out the same. Sonoma County is where Life Opens Up.
