About Vic McWilliams

I am a winemaker. I have owned and operated two award winning wineries since 1978, and that is my true passion. Living in Sonoma is magical and making wine from the grapes we grow in this region is a real joy. It is my pleasure to share a bottle of wine as a welcome gift to my guests. I hope you enjoy both my house and my wine.

Vic McWilliams purchased this house in 2009

Why Vic McWilliams chose Sonoma

This is my home that I am sharing with you. I have a beautiful back garden with swimming pool, and all of the amenities you could want for having a comfortable stay in Sonoma. I chose this property because it is in an older neighborhood and close to everything you could want in Sonoma.

What makes this house unique

The house is in a family neighborhood with easy access to all of the wonderful wineries and events Sonoma and Napa have to offer. It is close to the historic Sonoma plaza (2.9 miles), great restaurants, movie theaters and on-going events in Sonoma, and is just minutes from quaint Glen Ellen, home of Jack London State Park, and all points north. San Francisco is one hour south and the Sonoma coast one hour west. If you like to bike, hike, golf, swim, shop or taste wine and eat great food, you have come to the right place! Local artisans, musicians, spas and stores will entertain and indulge you. We are only a 15 minute drive from Sonoma Raceway and 30 minutes from Napa.

Fantastic experience. Great home to share with family and friends. Great Local in Sonoma.

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was great. Vic was an excellent host; very attentive and helpful. Plus he's a winemaker and has great wines in downtown Sonoma. The house was clean, the back yard was great, and the local was perfectly nestled just minutes from downtown. I would recommend this home to anyone and the next time we are in Sonoma I would stay here again. Thank you Vic for a hosting our family vacation.

Lovely stay - beautiful pool

The house has all the amenities you would ever need, very conveniently located close to Glen Ellen and downtown Sonoma, also parks, trails, groceries and wineries. The relaxing backyard garden and pool area is a hidden gem - and is certainly the highlight of the home! Vic was a great, thoughtful and responsive host.
