CA Neighborhood: Sonoma Valley, Wine Country
Located between Petaluma and Napa, and only about 40 miles north of San Francisco, Sonoma real estate is perfectly situated to maximize residents' quality of life. Although world-renowned as a wine mecca, Sonoma maintains the tight-knit feel of a small community, with a charming downtown. In 1846, the California Republic declared its independence from Mexico, with Sonoma named the capital of this short-lived sovereign state. Consequently, Sonoma is known as the birthplace of California, a town rich in history surrounded by breathtaking natural beauty.
