Without a geographical suffix, saying “Sonoma” might confuse the historic colonial city in the south, which happens to be part of the long Sonoma Valley, which one of fourteen American Viticultural Areas contained by the larger, 4,579 sq km County of Sonoma.
Not only that, there is Lake Sonoma in the far north of the county, and Lake Sonoma is also the name of a nearby winery.
Ok, designations aside, some incredible wines come from Sonoma County, namely, zinfandel, pinot noir, chardonnay and cabernet sauvignon.
I know. I lived in the Russian River area for 12 years. Since then, I’ve posted numerous stories about my home county and here are a few of my favourites:

- Ferrari-Carano Vineyards and Winery
