Seventeen wineries throughout the Heart of Sonoma Valley – a 10-mile stretch from Glen Ellen, through Kenwood and parts west – throw a communal party March 18-19 with annual Savor Sonoma weekend.
Members of the Heart of Sonoma Valley Association will showcase the 2016 vintage from barrels, sampling new releases, and offering award-winning wines.
With an all-venue pass, guests can meet winemakers, taste reserve wines, sample barrel wines, mingle in caves and on crush pads, enjoy live music, and tour scenic wineries and vineyards.
“This year 17 wineries in our association are going to pull out all the stops for an epic wine tasting and barrel tasting experience!” said Executive Director Josie Gay. “Instead of focussing on food and wine pairings this year, we are putting the spotlight back on our unbelievable variety of wines and barrel sampling. Sonoma Valley truly offers something for everyone.”
Participating wineries: Deerfield Ranch Winery, Kenwood Vineyards, La Rochelle, Ledson Winery & Vineyards, Little Vineyards, Loxton Cellars, Madrone Estate Winery, Manzanita Creek Winery, Mayo Family Winery, Muscardini Cellars, Orpheus Wines, Paradise Ridge Winery, Spann Vineyards, Sunce Winery & Vineyards, St. Anne’s Crossing Winery, Ty Caton Vineyards, VJB Vineyards & Cellars
