Great Fun &amp; Education this weekend in Sonoma Valley at the First Annual “Sonoma Valley Reserve”
As an associate member of the SVVGA I am delighted about this weekend's Sonoma Valley Reserve, a new wine event that offers participants the exclusive opportunity to see Sonoma Valley’s classic wineries in a completely new light, has been set for Saturday, May 14 and Sunday, May 15, 2011. This inaugural event, a series of themed daytrips around the region, will showcase rare offerings and hidden gems of Sonoma Valley wine destinations, many of which are seldom open to the public.
The first annual Sonoma Valley Reserve will feature a schedule of themed tours that take guests on a treasure hunt throughout the appellation. Each tour includes four winery visits, comfortable transportation by California Wine Tours and a wine country picnic lu
nch featuring fresh local ingredients. In addition, on Saturday the tours end at the Sonoma Valley Reserve Marketplace where wines – many not available elsewhere – will be available for purchase.
There are some very cool tours ranging from “Meet the Winery Rockstar Tour” “Sparkling Wines Tour” “Limited Production Wines Tour” “Sommelier Tour” are just a few of the great offers.
Tickets for Sonoma Valley Reserve are extremely limited (indeed some tours are sold out) and are $85 for one day or $135 for two days. Sonoma Valley Reserve ticketholders can depart from Sonoma or San Francisco. For an additional nominal fee ($30), round-trip motor coach transportation from San Francisco and Mill Valley will also be available. For information and tickets click here or call 707-935-0803.
