Hello and Welcome!

Sonoma County is Better is a look into one of the world’s finest destinations for adventures in food, wine and the outdoors!

While our friends in Napa County are undoubtedly more famous and have many cool things to offer (I’m looking at you Thomas Keller, BottleRock and Model Bakery English muffins), Sonoma County’s low key, just-barely-under-the-radar vibe is what makes me fall in love day after day.

I share the things and places I like to do and go, how to best enjoy this amazing area and help create the perfect experience for anyone visiting my hometown. You won’t find wine ratings on here – there are enough websites and magazines and competitions out there – but you will find out the best place to eat grilled cheese sandwiches that pair perfectly with hard-to-find sparkling wines and which wine country restaurants always offer free corkage for Sonoma County bottles!
