Cline Cellars makes a nice flight of wines, and they do so with sustainability in mind. They even created a new method of farming – the Green String farming method – to promote biodiversity and biological cycles. And instead of using pesticides to eliminate weeds, the winery relies on a herd of 1,500 sheep and 500 goats. Guests of Cline Cellars can say hello to some of the animals on their winery tours, before which they'll also learn about the history of the property and see the barrel room.

Recent travelers raved about the gorgeous estate, the delicious wine and the staff, which reviewers said were not only friendly, but also enthusiastic. Many reviewers also said that Cline Cellars offers nice wines at a decent price point, especially when compared to other wineries in the area.

Located right across the street from Jacuzzi Family Vineyards, Cline Cellars is located less than 10 miles south of central Sonoma. The winery is open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. daily, and offers walking tours of the Cline Cellars Estate each day at 11 a.m., 1 and 3 p.m. Cline Cellars offers $10 tastings for groups of up to six people (complimentary if a bottle is purchased); larger groups are required to book one of the private tasting experiences, which start at $15 per person.

#1 Sonoma Plaza

Centered in the heart of town, the historic Sonoma Plaza is a must-do. Once a Mexican military station and a Spanish mission village, the 8-acre park is now lined with more than 100 shops, dozens of eateries, and more than 20 tasting rooms. What's more, it's a National Historic Monument. Recent visitors highly recommended spending some time here window shopping, wine tasting, dining and even letting the kids run around the on-site playground. Reviewers said the plaza's atmosphere is both charming and family-friendly, and they suggested visiting on a Tuesday morning to take advantage of the weekly farmers market.

Sonoma Plaza is located in central Sonoma. Restaurants and shops have varying opening and closing times. Street parking is available, but with three-hour limits from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Saturday. For extended parking options, consider leaving your vehicle in one of the free all-day lots located nearby, such as the one at First Street East, located across from the mission. For more information, visit Sonoma Plaza's website.
