Sonoma County has a wealth of natural resources and so many ways to enjoy them. If you’re here for the wine and food, picnicking in any of the beautiful areas we have available is a must!

My dream date would be a hike through the woods followed by an outdoor picnic followed by a glass of wine at sunset. Heaven!

– Nina Agdal

Since many of the state, regional, and community parks in the area have picnic areas we’ve compiled a list, from closest to our tasting room in Sebastopol to farthest, where you can create your own unforgettable memories.
