Cloverdale is located in the northern section of the wine-rich Alexander Valley, the largest grape-growing region in Sonoma County. Vineyards and numerous premium wineries border the City to the south, while the majestic redwoods tower over Cloverdale to the north.

Recreation and nature abound in this beautiful part of northern California, with access to the 70-acre Cloverdale River Park and a number of other parks.

Cloverdale is also just minutes from Lake Sonoma. The lake is surrounded by Sonoma County vineyards and land rich in history. This provides the perfect setting for a wealth of recreational activities.

Bicycling is another popular activity in Cloverdale and Sonoma County. Cloverdale offers three great loops through wine country.
