Winners and honorable mentions

Online voting came to a close earlier this month in the Index-Tribune’s fifth annual Sonoma Valley People’s Choice Awards, and it was a genuine race to the finish in several categories of our “best of” readers poll. Sonomans like to keep the excitement up – a fact they’ve proved once again during the voting period. Readers cast their picks in an array of categories – from restaurants and bars to businesses to professionals and specialists, throwing the spotlight on the Valley’s finest in bakeries and boutiques, pedicures and plumbers, and a whole lot more. Our staff vote-counting department tallied the results, and the full list of winners and honorable mentions appears online at

Congratulations to all those who came out on top this year – and who will enjoy well-earned recognition at a Sonoma Valley People’s Choice Awards gala coming up on Wednesday, Sept. 11. Start patronizing these honored businesses now, Sonoma – and decide if you’ll be voting for them once again in 2020.
