The Taste West County organization and all of their member wineries share the vision and believes that the land is the heart of the community, and that when our land is healthy, our community is healthy. We as farmers must nurture and be stewards of the land so that future generations can enjoy and reap the benefits of Sonoma counties agriculture and landscape.
We are proud to be a part of the education and preservation of Sonoma County that is vital, so it remains a treasure for all to enjoy.
Sonoma Land Trust
Land is the Heart of the Community
Our county is one of the most beautiful and biologically diverse counties in the United States. We believe it is a treasure that should be enjoyed by our community and protected for future generations. From acquiring land and conservation easements to restoring land and the natural properties on which we depend, to protecting land for wildlife and recreation, we work tirelessly to find ways to preserve the beauty and vitality of Sonoma County. Additionally, we engage the community in the importance and value of this work through outdoor activities and outreach.
We maintain a diverse and expansive network of partnerships to accomplish a wide range of projects. Thanks to the generosity of those who trust in our work, we have been carrying out this mission for more than 40 years.
