West Sonoma County, dubbed ‘West County’ by locals is one of the most unique and picturesque areas of Sonoma County. Entailing the area west of Santa Rosa and to the coast, this area encompasses the small, charmingly eclectic city-towns of Sebastopol, Guerneville, and Occidental as well as a handful of other petite hamlets such as Graton, Forestville, and Monte Rio.
Rucked away into this uniquely idyllic corner of Sonoma County wine country, West Sonoma County has a completely different identity and feel. Visitors won’t find looming wine castles, glamorous chateaus, or tour buses full of bachelorettes here. Low key is the name of the game in thees parts, but that doesn’t mean you won’t find a wealth of amazing wine and gastronomic experiences.
From casual farm-to-table eateries and popular outdoor gourmet marketplaces to high-end restaurants where dishes are prepared by renowned Chefs and served up in a California-Coastal casual ambiance and roadside artisan cheese shops West Sonoma County is a foodie paradise. And the wineries and wine tasting experiences here are equally as impressive and diverse while blissfully unpretentious.
