The City of Sonoma is not only the hub for one of the world’s finest grape-growing regions and visitor destinations, but a great place to live and work year-round. With San Francisco only an hour away, Sonoma blends a friendly, small-town atmosphere with the entrepreneurial culture of the Bay Area. With 10,000 residents, the town is part of a larger Sonoma Valley community with a diverse population of about 40,000, and is known for its small locally-owned businesses and strong sense of community. Home to the northernmost California mission and centered around a beautiful 8-acre plaza, Sonoma draws those inspired by its rich history, scenic beauty, and great food and wine.
