Sonoma Valley maintains a much more small-town ambiance than Napa Valley. Sonoma County has over 400 wineries that include names such as Kenwood, Ravenswood, Sebastiani, Domaine Carneros, and Chateau St. Jean. The wineries in Sonoma are often small and family-owned, with a laid-back country atmosphere. From the beautiful Town Square shopping region, with Sebastiani Theatre Building constructed in 1933, to the Sonoma State Historic Park, Sonoma is steeped in California history.
