June to October is the most popular time to book Sonoma County vacation rentals, with pleasantly warm sunny days and hardly any rain. However, with attractions such as the wineries open year-round, it's also worth visiting during the spring, when it's still warm and any rain clears away quickly.

Redwoods and rugged beaches in Sonoma County

Sonoma County is seemingly covered in lush greenery, with row upon row of vineyard growing in the sunshine.
