Sonoma County is home to some of the world's best wineries. But don't be misled by this destination's natural beauty: Sonoma is all business. A recent survey by the county's Economic Development Board suggested that expansion and investment would continue to surge this year. Where to stay: Ramekins Bed & Breakfast is uniquely placed above one of the state's best-known culinary schools. What to do: Winery tours are a must, but don't overlook the more obscure vineyards, such as Porter Creek Vineyards and Martinelli Winery & Vineyards.
