About the 2009 Dream Home Setting - Sonoma, in the California Wine Country:
Sonoma was originally founded by Spanish missionaries in 1823. The name comes from an American Indian word that meant "Valley of the Moon" because of the way the moon seemed to nestle between the mountains on either side. The city still boasts a beautiful town plaza surrounded by historic buildings. It is also known for its amazing wines, especially Zinfindels. In 2005, the Sonoma area boasted more than 250 vineyards.
