We can add more wineries later this week, if more of you are interested. If people can't come here, they can still BUY WINE. Please use the hashtags #SipSonoma  #WineRoad  #GatherInSonoma     Click here to check it out #SipSonoma

We are taking care of our ticket buyers this week.

The decision was made to cancel, not postpone.
Customers were all contacted Friday and given four options...move to Wineland, donate, save for next year, or refund.
We hope to have this completed by Friday.  Next week I'll give you the final numbers.
I know how disappointing it is for all of the wineries, caterer and customers. 

We hope you join us.

Wine Road will be setting up "Destination Wine Road" at this festival AND organizing two seminars, for press and trade. This is the link with festival details and for the form to register.
Wine Road will offer $175 to help offset your table costs.
