The winners of the Index-Tribune’s third annual Sonoma Valley People’s Choice Awards gathered at Buena Vista Winery on Sept. 20 to honor this year’s winners.

Over the course of three weeks last summer, readers cast their picks in an array of categories – from food and drink to businesses to professionals and specialists, throwing the spotlight on the Valley’s finest in bakeries and boutiques, pedicures and plumbers, and a whole lot more.

Our on-staff vote-counting department tallied the results, and the full list of winners appears today in a special supplement in this issue.

Congratulations to this year’s winners and thanks to the 300-plus co-workers, friends and family who helped celebrate.
