Small lots, big wine event
Posted on April 7, 2019 by Sonoma Valley Sun
Wine made by hand in such small lots that it might have come from the garage of some mad, wonderful genius? That’s the idea behind The Garagiste Wine Festival, a gathering of Northern California micro-producers on Saturday, April 13, in Sonoma.
“We have an extraordinary line-up of winemakers you may have never heard of — but who you will fall in love with,” promises festival co-founder Stewart McLennan.
The winemakers (1,500 cases or less) pour the wine, from 1 to 5 p.m. at the Sonoma Veterans Building, 126 First. St. W. $65-$115.
“We are so pleased to be back in the heart of Sonoma wine country for the second year,” McClennan said. There is something completely different and special about Sonoma, and we were overwhelmed by the positive reception we received last year.”
“These winemakers take their craft and their terroir very seriously, and we look forward to exploring this with a deep dive into the treasures of the West Sonoma Coast AVA in our tasting seminar, which kicks off the festival.”
