Getting to Sebastopol

Sebastopol is located within both the Russian River Valley and the Sonoma Coast viticultural areas, and is situated at the crossroads of Highway 116 (which leads to the north to the river and the redwoods at Guerneville) and Highway 12 (on the way west to Bodega Bay and the Sonoma Coast beaches). For this reason, it is a nature lovers paradise due to it’s proximity to nature and the Sonoma Coast.

Sebastopol is about 55 miles from San Francisco and takes just a little over an hour by car. For this reason, more and more people that live in San Francisco or fly into San Francisco, are making this a getaway wine destination.

If you fly into the Charles M. Shultz Airport in Santa Rosa, Sebastopol is the next town over from Santa Rosa, which makes it very convenient. If you fly with American Airlines into Charles Shultz Airport, they have a Wine Flies Free Program. This means that you can fly with a case of wine for free, yes, I said free! That means that you can purchase your favorite wines on your wine tour to take home with you to last for months or years to come.
