'Sonoma Valley Reserve' offers winery tours
Sonoma Valley Reserve, a new wine event set for Saturday and Sunday, May 14 and 15, includes transportation and lunch for visitors to experience Sonoma Valley's wineries in a new light.
This inaugural event, which replaced Passport to Sonoma Valley, is actually a series of themed daytrips that will showcase rare offerings and hidden gems of Sonoma Valley wine destinations, many of which are seldom open to the public.
Examples of some of the tours include:
• Meet the Winery Rock Star Tour - On this tour, participants will meet some of Sonoma Valley's more charismatic and creative personalities and taste the wines for which they've gained global acclaim.
• Bridal Tour - From panoramic views to vineyard vistas, this tour will help find the wedding location of a lifetime.
• All Access Tour - An exclusive opportunity to gain access to wine destinations rarely open to the public and others that are accessible by appointment only.
• Food and Wine Pairing Tour - Wineries will reveal the complex art of pairing wine with food.
Each tour includes four winery visits, comfortable transportation by California Wine Tours and a picnic lunch.
Tickets are $85 for one day or $135 for two days. Sonoma Valley Reserve ticketholders can depart from Sonoma, Mill Valley or San Francisco.
