Winery Map of the Day – Stunning Sonoma Pinot Noir


Sonoma's natural beauty, diversity, and exceptional wine make it one of America's top wine touring destinations. In contract to its more famous next door neighbor, Sonoma is a relatively large area with varied geography and a wide range of travel routes, climates, and grape varieties. Sonoma's vinous diversity is both a curse and a blessing. Unlike other regions that are known for a particular variety such as Cabernet Sauvignon or Pinot Noir, Sonoma wineries excel with a wide variety of grapes to include Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon and Zinfandel. The result is that for people who have never been wine tasting in Sonoma, it's probably not the first place that comes to mind. Fortunately for Sonoma wineries, once wine tourists visit the area, they're hooked, and the diversity that originally hindered awareness becomes its greatest asset.

Sonoma, and particularly the Russian River Valley, is the source of some of America's best Pinot Noir, and today's Winery Map of the Day lists the Sonoma wineries that should be on every Pinot lover's list!
