For short flat walks, wineries can provide beautiful gardens, vistas and charming if sometime kitschy architecture for your viewing pleasure.
With over 300 wineries in Sonoma County, we won’t cover all of them – but we will display some of our favorite gardens. Some are walks on their own and some are near places we like to walk.
This imposing Kendall-Jackson Winery is off of Fulton Rd. north of Santa Rosa, CA. Its gardens provide their own walk.
Formal gardens with fountains, lawn and roses are near the building.
A Culinary Garden flourishes with flowers, small beds of herbs, and rows of vegetables. Purples, oranges and reds vibrated in a flower bed. Garish purple lettuce matched up against yellowish green leaves.
Flowers or vegetables are grown to a profusion of colors.
Beyond this garden is a grove a walnut trees. I find it a peaceful spot, even with Hwy 101 nearby.
