Sonoma County is rated one of the top 10 'wine' travel destinations in the world by Wine Enthusiast Magazine, February 2014. As expected, wineries abound in the area offering public tours and tastings; some wineries offer appointment only tours, tastings and food pairings with many wineries offering wines that only can be purchased at the winery. Frequently on a summer weekend evening music can drift quietly over the area from activities at either Chateau St Jean Winery or Landmark Winery which always ends by 10 PM.
The Kenwood Casita is within easy walking, cycling, or driving distances to numerous wineries, restaurants, City of Sonoma and Annandale, Sugarloaf and Mt. Hood parks.
