AMA - wine, craft beer, and cannabis - see what makes Sonoma County so unique!

Just a short drive across the golden gate bridge, Sonoma County is home to world-renowned wine country, the microbrewery capital of the united states, and now, the newly legal cannabis industry. 

We offer two different experiences that will show you the ins, outs, and similarities between all three industries.

Our Wine + Cannabis Experience will show you the agricultural similarities between how wine grapes and outdoor marijuana is grown while visiting wineries for tastings.

The Craft Beer + Cannabis Experience shows the industrial similarities between the brewing process and the cannabis extraction process, while also tasting craft beer right from the breweries themselves.

Nowhere else will you find a place that produces these three products at the quality Sonoma county does. It’s not just wine country anymore. It’s also craft beer country, and now, cannabis country.

Why do you believe the wine produced in Sonoma County so successful?
Jun 12, 5:25AM EDT0

The Climate and soil have a lot do to with this. The hot summer days and the cool nights. The dry heat with little humidity is also the ideal climate for the grapes.

Why are there such similarities in the cultivation of both marijuana and grapes?
Jun 6, 5:44AM EDT0

A lot of it has to do with the way they grow. Both cannabis plants and wine grapes thrive in a specific climate, which Sonoma County has. They both run the same season, starting in March/April and harvest in September/October. Also, what you're getting now is a lot of cannabis farmers using techniques from the wine industry, such as biodynamic farming.

Jun 5, 10:46PM EDT0
What are the benefits you offer vendors or other services when partnering with you?
Jun 5, 8:06PM EDT0

In brining locals and tourists from SF, it is a great way to get brand exposure. We want to help local business in Sonoma County reach an audience they wouldn't otherwise reach. 

Jun 5, 10:45PM EDT0
How different is Sonoma from other wine destinations, like Napa or San Luis Obispo? What makes Sonoma unique?
Jun 5, 7:39PM EDT0

With Sonoma County having the Microbrewery capital of the US and also being very progressive with cannabis legalization, it makes it a very unique place. The cannabis produced in Sonoma County is very high level, that has to do with the soil, climate, elevation, very similar to why the wine is so sucessful. When you put all three of those together, you won't find another county that produces all three of those products, at the level Sonoma County does.
