Savor the Taste of Sonoma

August 05, 2019

Any time of year is a great time for wine lovers in Sonoma County, but on August 31, the Green Music Center at Sonoma State University will take festivities to the next level with Taste of Sonoma, an annual celebration of the culinary and viticultural expertise that makes our region one of the most famous in the world. From noon to 4 P.M. on the day of the festival, you’ll be invited to sample vintages from over one hundred acclaimed winemakers, along with mouthwatering small bites from dozens of local restaurants. As you partake in these pleasures of the palate, you’ll also enjoy live musical performances by popular local bands, and you’ll have the opportunity to participate in an adrenaline-pumping silent disco party (a party that includes the chance to win a luxury cruise to exotic locales). The festival also features a series of half-hour wine talks, where industry experts will share their knowledge of the intricate and fascinating ecology that makes different areas of Sonoma County conducive to specific types of wine production, including Zinfandel, Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Noir, and more. Additional perks are available to VIP pass holders.

Address: 1801 E Cotati Ave., Rohnert Park, CA 94928
