Yes Virginia, sometimes we have to share the bounty with others outside our Valley. Especially when we are invited to showcase one of the many reasons why we love living in the Valley of the Moon – its wines. Thank you to John Hinman for generously hosting approximately 200 people at the Little Big Bottle Party on Thursday, July 21st at the University Club in San Francisco to celebrate the upcoming charitable Sonoma Valley Harvest Wine Auction on September 4th at Cline Cellars in our Sonoma Wine Country!
Various vintners from Sonoma County descended on the University Club to pour special vintages and magnums of their wines and raise awareness for the upcoming charitable auction. These vintners included: Jean-Charles Boisset, owner of Buena Vista Carneros Winery and DeLoach Vineyards; Julia Iantosca, winemaker for Lasseter Family Vineyards; Gary Saperstein of Hanzell Vineyards; Walter Schug, owner of Schug Carneros Estate and Michael Browne, co-founder of Kosta Browne.
The Sonoma Valley Harvest Wine Auction will be held on Sunday, September 4th at Cline Cellars. This charitable auction is the feather in the cap of the SPECTACULAR Sonoma Wine Country Weekend, which is Friday, September 2nd – Sunday, September 4th over the Labor Day Weekend! The proceeds from this auction help and support numerous charitable organizations in Sonoma County. This year’s beneficiaries are the Redwood Empire Food Bank and Sonoma Valley Hospital Foundation.
See you all at the Auction!
