Sonoma County named the top wine destination in the U.S.

So now everybody knows; In October Sonoma County was named the top wine destination in the U.S. by TripAdvisor’s Travelers’ Choice Awards.

According to TripAdvisor, award winners were determined based on their popularity as wine destinations, taking into account travelers' reviews and opinions for local wineries, restaurants, attractions and accommodations.

TripAdvisors quote “Sonoma County may not produce as much wine as nearby Napa, but what it lacks in volume, it more than makes up for in variety, You’ll find everything from Chardonnay to Zinfandel here, and TripAdvisor travelers love the laid-back, unpretentious vibe of the wineries. After a strenuous day of wine-tasting, spoil yourself at one of the many local spas.”

Wow, what are we going to do now? [Read more…]
