Four reasons to visit Sonoma County in November

1. The crowds are gone. September and October are still busy as folks visit at harvest time. Somehow, magically, the traffic slows way down November 1st. 

2. Special events: 
Wine & Food Affair in northern Sonoma County. 
Annual Holiday Open House in Sonoma Valley. 

3. The weather is usually pretty good. You can get some of those early winter rains in November, but that's most likely going to be at the end of the month. Most days are very pleasant for the better part of the month (the average high temperature in Santa Rosa is 67 in November). Perfect for wine tasting. Also, the cooler weather across the country makes it safe to ship wines home.

4. The beauty of the vineyards in November.
