Society Thrives Here - Gay Wine Weekend
Valerie Henderson, Andi Werlin
A three-day Pride celebration in the Valley
Out In The Vineyard producers of the Gay Wine Weekend pulled all the stops to showcase Sonoma Valley to the LGTB community and their friends.
The event’s kickoff VIP Reception was held at Saddles Restaurant where GM Bill Blum welcomed guests. Later in the evening the Gay Comedy Night with headliners Judy Tenuta and Dave Karraker took place at the Sonoma Community Center.
The next day guests attended the Twilight T-Dance at the Atwood Ranch. A natural gorgeous setting enhanced by Julie Atwood’s special touch: a spectacular sunset.
On Sunday the Big Gay Brunch and Live Wine Auction at El Dorado Kitchen was the perfect way to close the weekend; a delicious meal, Mimosas, Bloody Marys and auction with Michael Tate.
The weekend was a great success for all, the producers, Sonoma Valley, and the two benefiting organizations, Sonoma Community Center and Face-to-Face.
A great way to celebrate Gay Pride Month!
