Sonoma, California – Wine Country Meets Equine Country

Among the rolling hills of the Russian River Valley, enjoy world-class equestrian exhibits at Sonoma Horse Park, exquisite California wines, and lush natural scenery.


Sonoma is a place of unsurpassed natural beauty and bountiful harvests, where you can enjoy the best of Northern California’s vineyards while taking in one of the Sonoma Horse Park’s world-class horse shows.

Situated on the banks of the beautiful Petaluma River and nestled in wine country, the expansive Sonoma Horse Park features some of North America’s top equestrian competitors. A visit here allows you to enjoy both the excitement of a show jumping competition and the serenity of a vineyard vacation.

While exploring the Russian River Valley, enjoy Michelin-starred dining, private wine tastings, and behind-the-scenes tours that give you an insider’s look at the art of winemaking. Relax in the natural beauty of Northern California, wine and dine yourself, or indulge in a luxurious spa experience.

And let’s not forget the nearby Napa Valley where more wineries and natural beauty await you. Soar above the Valley on a private hot air balloon ride, stay down to earth and enjoy artisanal, locally produced food, or choose both! We’ll gladly curate an itinerary that fits all your interests.
