Living the Sonoma Wine Country lifestyle embodies many facets of day-to-day life that us locals to the area, can and probably do take for granted. For example, commuting with vineyards on both sides or experiencing a traffic jam behind a tractor during harvest. It’s staring at your curated wine collection from industry friends and wine clubs thinking which would pair best for Taco Tuesday (hint – go for something with high acidity like a rosé). Wine Country lifestyle is having book clubs that are more chatting around chardonnay and charcuterie plates. Or shopping for your friends in a perfectly curated boutique full of local, handmade goods downtown. It’s having discussions about vintages and whether X year was better than X year. Or having a go-to picnic basket that you like best, or heck, having a picnic basket at all!
On this page you’ll find our favorite Wine Country Lifestyle tips from insiders like our vintners, store-owners, chefs and locals. Keep coming back for new content to fill up your cup with all things Wine Country lifestyle.
