"I firmly believe, from what I have seen,
that this is the chosen spot of all
this earth as far as Nature is concerned."

− Luther Burbank, Botanist & Horticulturist

"The grapes on a score of rolling hills are red with autumn flame. Across Sonoma Mountain wisps of sea fog are stealing. The afternoon sun smoulders in the drowsy sky. I have everything to make me glad I am alive. I am filled with dreams and mysteries. I am all sun and air and sparkle. I am vitalized, organic."

− Jack London, Author

"You can see it in the eyes of all you meet, you can hear it in their voices...
the evidence surrounds us...Sonoma County is a piece of paradise. To understand that, you would
only have to spend some time and enjoy what we have to offer."

− Peter Lang, Founder of Safari West
