Conveniently located at the Southern Gateway to Napa and Sonoma Wine Country, Cornerstone Sonoma is an eclectic collection of art galleries, shops, wineries and a gourmet café & market set amidst nine acres of garden installations created by the world’s leading landscape architects. TheGardens at Cornerstone Sonoma are a series of walk-through installations showcasing new and innovative designs from the world's finest landscape architects and designers.
