Sonoma or Napa? Two rivals slug it out over which wine country has the juice
Written by Rod Smith
If you want to get away, get way, way away in the far Russian River Valley and upper Sonoma Coast. The county’s larger than Rhode Island, which is how it can take more than 7 million annual visitors without running out of elbow room. That said, stay in Healdsburg and you can go practically car-free, visiting tasting rooms in town or biking the sweet little Dry Creek Valley loop, with stops like Preston for tastings and fresh-baked bread.
