Cloverdale is located in the northern section of the wine rich Alexander Valley—the largest grape growing region in Sonoma County. Vineyards and numerous premium wineries border the Town to the south, while the majestic redwoods tower over Cloverdale to the north. Recreation and nature abounds in this beautiful part of northern California with access to a 70-acre Russian River Park, and just minutes from Lake Sonoma.
Wineries in the Alexander Valley, Dry Creek Valley and Russian River Valley appellations of Northwest Sonoma County stretch form Cloverdale to Santa Rosa. Northwest Sonoma County encompasses beautiful coastal and grape growing areas, from Guerneville, Sebastopol, and Forestville to the west, to Healdsburg, Geyserville and north to Cloverdale. The area is full of history; Northwest Sonoma County is one of the oldest viticulture areas in California.
» Your stay includes a complimentary wine tasting passport to over 100 Sonoma County wineries!
• Bicycling in the wine country. Cloverdale has three great loops through wine country.
• Hot Air Ballooning. The skies above Sonoma County are often speckled with hot-air balloons of every size, color, and design. The wide, flat valley with its moderate and (somewhat) predictable winds makes hot-air ballooning a favorite activity in the area.
• Lake Sonoma. Located in the beautiful coastal foothills of Northern California is Lake Sonoma. Lake Sonoma is surrounded by Sonoma County vineyards and land rich in history. This provides the perfect setting for a wealth of recreation activities.
