With a tiny population of just 2,522, Penngrove offers peaceful, picturesque small-town living in central Sonoma County, with easy access to the city of San Francisco that’s only 32 miles away. This quaint country town sits between Petaluma and Cotati, just east of the Highway 101 corridor and at the foot of Sonoma Mountain.
Though scenically set in the heart of the Sonoma Wine Country, it seems ironic that not one winery, wine shop or tasting room exists within its stunning borders. Rather, Penngrove will awe you with its intimate, bucolic 4-square-mile community comprised of bucolic sprawling farms and rural estates.
Penngrove is steeped in rich history. The former site of Penn’s Grove, a freight station on the Northwestern Pacific Railroad operating at the start of the 20th century, it was one of the largest centers of egg and chicken farming, second only to Petaluma.
With a charming downtown just 2 blocks long, residents of Penngrove have access to an eclectic assortment of places to shop, dine, enjoy music, coffee and cocktails, all within elegant historic buildings. Mack’s Bar & Grill, Yanni’s Sausage Grill and Full Circle Baking Company are among the many popular local favorites. Or you can find all sorts of treasures in antique galleries, sample artisan cheese at the source, or sip local wine on a sunset cruise on the Petaluma River.
