Check it out! We launched the new site on Valentine's Day. So far all seems to be working correctly. We will continue to add "Day Trips" and more "Experiences". Please let us know if you see any errors or information that needs editing. This is a HUGE site. Lots of moving parts! 
The goal was to focus on what guests want from us: itinerary ideas, what's new, maps, and events. We tried to showcase that we have something for everyone, from the repeat experienced taster, to those new to wine. 

Wine Library Event... TONIGHT!

February 26th an evening with Sonoma County Wine Legends: Ana Keller, David Ramey, David Stare, Bob Cabral and Richard Arrowood.

A Wine & Food Affair...

  • We have had 2 task force meetings to discuss ways to expand Wine & Food Affair weekend, bring in new guests and engage with more of our winery members.
  • We will be partnering with local restaurants for "event weekend pairing or specials".
  • Along with our "Breakfast with the Winemakers", we will host cooking classes, and promote winemaker dinners leading up to the weekend.
  • We want to see this event incorporate all of our area chefs, producers, and farmers alongside our winemakers.
  • The goal will be to showcase the bounty of Sonoma County, having the harvest in Sonoma County culminate with A Wine & Food Affair.
Look for more details to follow in the next couple of weeks.

Wine Industry Network Introducing the new 3-Tier Wine Symposium a one-day conference focused on helping wine industry executives and owners navigate the complicated, but necessary, world of distributor relationships.

opportunities the wholesale channel presents. Panelists and presenters will provide you with the tools and techniques you need to change the way your winery works with your distributor partners to maximize this sales channel and grow your brand.
The day will finish with a 60-minute networking social with wine and light food. The organizer is looking for 5 cases of wine, mixed red and white, to feature at the event.
