The annual St. Patrick’s Day Limerick Contest is underway at Larson Family Winery. Despite the recent fire, they are carrying on the tradition, with entries from all over the country.
Participants waxed poetic about either Larson or Sonoma County in their limericks. The winners will receive a $150 Larson Family Winery gift card to use online at the winery’s web store

Larson Family Winery Category:
We ventured to Larson for Cabs,
And to frolic with three gorgeous Labs.
OMG, such great wine!
TLC was divine!
And for free (Ollie ate all our tabs)!
Leslie McGee, Grass Valley
Sonoma's grand vineyards do shine.
Grapes grown here are always divine.
Visiting is a ball
tasting wines one and all -
Three Lab Cab is a favorite of mine!
Joan Salzman, Los Alamos, New Mexico
Three dogs of the species named lab
Got together to make a great cab
Everyone thought it was jolly
That Louie, Rosko, and Ollie
Were making a wine that is fab
Alan Wyman, White Bear Township, Minnesota
There is 'ol gent named Bob,
Who peddles fine wine for a job.
So if you start run dry,
And you feel you may die.
Just call Bob, it's his job, don't you sob!
Clifford Tumambing, Hogansville
My wife bought me Sonoma wine
Uncorked a bottle when ready to dine
We drank through the first
Before quenching our thirst
It was nothing less than divine
Elliot Cole, Las Vegas, Nevada
A winery owner that we know
Says he's quitting the biz (i.e., vino)
It's not that he minds
Tending the vines;
He's just tired of working for pinot
Arthur O’Dwyer, Irvington, New York
