Travel mag: Sonoma is 8th most romantic place

Uncork that bottle and fire up the chiminea, because Sonoma is romantic.

Those living here already know that, probably, but now the rest of the world knows it too, thanks to a recent Top 10 list by a prominent travel magazine.

According to <i>Travel + Leisure</i>, Sonoma is the eighth most romantic place in America, beating out Portsmouth, N.H., and Traverse City, Mich.

“I think it’s part of our authenticity,” said Wendy Peterson, executive director of the Sonoma Valley Visitors Bureau, in explaining why Sonoma made the list. “Once you come to Sonoma, it feels like you sort of belong here.”

“There’s just something that feels very intimate about the experience” of visiting the area, she added, noting “the friendliness of our community, the accessibility, it just creates this lovely atmosphere.”
