Wine

You can visit several tasting rooms on the Sonoma Plaza that have vegan wine options. Cheers!

 
Your guide to spending the day in the Sonoma Plaza
(and beyond) with vegan options all along the way!

Yes, vegan options do exist in Sonoma Valley. Some may be a bit harder to find, but we have you covered. Living in Sonoma Valley for over 10 years, and for the past two and a half years as a vegan has helped make this personal.  We have compiled our favorites into a list for you here so you don't have to worry about a thing- just head out and enjoy that perfect glass of vegan-friendly wine. Of course, we highly recommend taking our Farm Sanctuary and Vegan Wine Tour to round out your perfect weekend. 

We are also proud to be a part of a growing vegan community with Wine Country 2.0.

Wine Country 2.0 is all about unleashing the ‘New World’ spirit of California’s pioneering wine region to meet the demands of the changing climate and the changing tastes and expectations of today’s conscious visitors and guests.

 

Wine Country knows only too well the impact of climate change. This convivial, climate-forward collaboration celebrates the diverse, local tastemakers and change-makers who are leading the way in creating a more sustainable and compassionate wine country experience.

Hiking at Jack London State Park- Free docent-led tours on Saturday & Sundays at 11:00 & 1:00 (no tours currently due to COVID but the park is open for hiking. There is also an app you can download that takes you on a self-guided tour. 

Stop by for a stroll at Cornerstone Gardens. The gardens and shops are wonderful to wander through. The wine at Obsidian is vegan. You can also bring a picnic. 

Be sure to check out the museums of missions at Cline Cellars, just down the way, they also have vegan wine. 

VJB Cellars has a beautiful patio and their pizzas are great. They also have vegan chocolate in the gelato shop next door-try a dark chocolate Red Vine!

Go for an easy bike ride around the Valley with stops at a few of our favorite wineries. Rentals, half-day tours, and full-day tours available. Check out Sonoma Valley Bike Tours for more information. 

 

If you want to venture out of Sonoma, I highly recommend a hike at Armstrong Redwoods and a stop at the Barlow. Of course, you could spend an entire day just in Sebastopol. Muirs Tea Room is the best! Don't miss Amy's Kitchen in Rohnert Park for the best chili-cheese fries ever!
