The Heart of Wine Country
Michael Zivyak, President, Magazine Division
Sonoma is a world unto itself. Its defining landscape combines scenic beauty and agricultural abundance. It is urban sophistication in an idyllic, rural setting. It is a destination, a haven, a state of mind, and a way of life.
Sonoma magazine’s aim is to capture and celebrate this landscape and lifestyle. The magazine explores the food and wine culture that drives the region; the homes, outdoors, cuisine, personalities, cultural attractions, and style of the region with a fresh, informed voice, a curatorial point of view, and gorgeous visuals.
Sonoma magazine does more than simply reflect Sonoma’s identity and the culturally rich, sophisticated community it is. The insider’s voice of the magazine contributes to, informs, and unites the region in a manner befitting Sonoma.
It showcases high-quality photography, intelligent feature writing and valuable service articles, while also providing in-depth reporting on locally relevant issues and short bits on fun stuff.
Promoting the area to its most active, devoted residents, weekenders, and visitors, Sonoma magazine is essential for people who live in Sonoma and for those who wish they did, appealing to the hearts and minds of loyal subscribers and newsstand browsers who want to take this amazing place home with them.
