Private Flight to Sonoma Valley Wine Country
Locals call it Slo-noma. The Gallup Poll calls it California’s happiest county. And there’s no denying it’s the birthplace of California wine-making. It’s Sonoma, CA and it’s waiting to envelop you in relaxation. When you take a private flight to Sonoma, the trip there is just the beginning of a delightful, kick-back vacation.
Located in Santa Rosa, CA only 45 miles north of San Francisco, Sonoma Valley is a wine-making region to drink in and enjoy. Although Sonoma hasn’t received quite as much attention as Napa in the past, it’s catching up and remains the center of the state’s modern wine industry. Sonoma County was even recognized as the top wine destination in the U.S. by TripAdvisor’s Travelers’ Choice Awards 2012.
Boasting approximately 200 wineries throughout the region, Sonoma is home to some of the oldest, most respected wineries in California. Established by Count Agoston Haraszthy in 1857, Buena Vista Winery is the oldest winery in Sonoma. It produces 100,000 cases of wine including pinot noir, merlot, cabernet sauvignon, chardonnay, syrah, sauvignon blanc, and zinfandel wines, as well as numerous distinct varietals offered under the “Vinicultural Society” label.
Upon taking a private flight to Sonoma, you can also visit the first vineyard of Sonoma Valley, San Francisco Solano Mission Vineyard, which was first planted by the Franciscan Fathers of San Francisco in 1825. Due to the vineyard’s success, Samuele Sebastiani, an Italian immigrant, purchased the vineyard in the early 1900s. The Sebastiani family has made wine there ever since, and the vineyard is open to the public for tastings and tours every day.
Throughout Sonoma Valley, you’ll also find a wide collection of small, family-owned tasting rooms where you can take your glass of wine directly from the winemakers hand.
And what better treat to go with your Sonoma wine-tasting adventures than a little cheese! Formerly known as Sonoma Brewing Co., the Vella Cheese Company makes a variety of world-class cheeses, including Sonoma Jack Cheese (the city’s namesake). It’s the ideal stop for any wine /cheese enthusiast taking a private flight to Sonoma Valley wine country.
Sonoma also offers travelers relaxing entertainment outside the wine industry. Sonoma Plaza, home of the Vella Cheese Company, is a must-see spot. The Plaza is canopied by enormous shade trees, and features a pristinely preserved mission near other historic adobe buildings. Visitors can also enjoy fun shops, fine restaurants, and the Robert Hunter Winery, Sonoma’s #1 destination for vineyard tours.
Other popular destinations in the region include the Infineon Raceway, where spectators can watch NASCAR, IndyCar, AMA, and NHRA races, and Sebastiani Theatre. Sebastiani Theatre, built by the same Samuele Sebastiani in 1933, has been a part of the Sonoma community for more than 75 years. As a county landmark, the theatre is maintained by the Sebastiani Theater Foundation, which is dedicated to preserving the historical charm of Sonoma Plaza. Of course, Sebastiani Theatre also provides a unique venue for the performing arts and other local talent.
So take a private flight to Sonoma Valley for an unforgettably rejuvenating experience. With wine, entertainment, Spanish history, and the region’s magnificent, rustic surroundings, Sonoma is the ultimate getaway destination.
