Sonoma Wine Country & Coast Photos

Sonoma Wine Country is far more varied than people may think. From Healdsburg alone, three different valleys (fostering three very different types of wine grape) can be explored. And along the rugged Sonoma Coast — particularly in Fort Ross/Seaview — hilltop vineyards reveal a wilder side to wine country.

On this tour, we not only focused on Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, but also the rugged scenery — with forays to Point Reyes National Seashore, the Golden Gate Bridge and the Japanese Tea Garden in San Francisco.

  • &#;Photographer Insight Wine grapes always photograph best in backlight, which enhances the textures of the vine and grape skin.
