The historic Valley of the Moon Winery have made plans to celebrate 150 years in Sonoma with a fête fit for the stars – and Sonomans. Scheduled for 5 to 9 p.m. the evening of Saturday, Sept. 14, the evening is billed as “The New Moon Gala.”
Local managing partner/proprietor Dan Zepponi and his Canadian partner/proprietor Tony Stewart will unveil the fruits of their labor toward the resurrection of one of Sonoma Valley’s most storied winery properties.
Attendees will get an exclusive first-look at the winery’s rustically elegant design, its refined wine style and stunning new packaging.
They will experience first-hand Valley of the Moon’s new hospitality programs bolstered by live music, plentiful food-and-wine-pairing stations and a multitude of special surprises.
The journey toward the “New Moon” began a little more than a year ago when Zepponi, a Sonoma local and wine-industry veteran, purchased Valley of the Moon along with his business partner Stewart, a veteran of the Canadian wine-industry.
