During the Mexican-American War, Sonoma was the place of the 1846 Bear Flag Revolt. This revolt created the California Republic, a country (with Sonoma as the capital) that existed for less than one month. Sonoma is also known for its history of historic mineral pool spas. Currently the highest grossing tourist attraction is the acres of vinyards and wineries including B.R. Cohn and Benzinger.
