ROHNERT PARK came out of nowhere. Unlike Sonoma County?s other cities, Rohnert Park?s rural roots go no deeper than 1954, when Santa Rosa attorneys Paul Golis and Maurice Fredericks brainstormed the idea of planting a city on the flatlands of the 26 year old Rohnert Seed Farm founded in 1929 by Waldo Rohnert.

In 1957 the town?s first homes were built. The town quickly became a city tied together by a string of housing subdivisions without an identifiable downtown. But Rohnert Park, nicknamed ?The Friendly City?, offered something else ? a sense of family.

Rohnert Park was built on a neighborhood concept that placed parks, schools and swimming pools in the center of each 200 ? 250 home subdivisions.

California State University (Sonoma), the Rohnert Park Stadium, Peter M. Callinan Sports Center and Dorothy Rohnert Spreckels Performing Arts Center later were built to add to the city?s educational, cultural and recreational diversity.

Famed horticulturist Luther Burbank was among the first to draw the world's attention to this small corner of Northern California, dubbing it "the chosen spot of all the earth, as far as nature is concerned." For nearly 50 years, straddling the turn of the century, the "plant wizard" worked in his experimental gardens in Santa Rosa and on acreage in the nearby town of Sebastopol developing some 800 varieties of fruits, flowers and vegetables before he died in 1926. Largely due to Burbank, the county's suitability for bountiful agriculture became its defining element.

The first wine grapes were planted in Sonoma County more than 200 years ago, by Spanish missionaries, making this the birthplace of California's Wine Country. Today, there are more than 190 wineries in Sonoma County, including many of the world's best-known labels and appellations. Most wineries are open to the pubic for tours and complimentary tastings. A few wineries require reservations for tours and may charge for private reserve labels. For additional information on Sonoma County wineries click here.
