  • The ladies at the tourist office are very knowledgeable about the area. Also they can provide you with coupons and the “I ❤️ Sonoma” stickers for discount on wine tasting (often two for the price of one). They have extensive documentation and great maps of the area available and can recommend which wineries are the most suitable to visit. This is useful because there is an overwhelming choice of hundreds of wineries you could go to. You can also visit their website and they will send you nice booklets about Sonoma at home.
  • Very friendly and knowledgeable about the whole area, and many helpful personal tips on where to go and what to eat. Do drop by for a map and a chat if you’re visiting the area.
