The West Sonoma Coast Vintners association was formed in 2010 to highlight the distinguished wines crafted from grapes grown on the coastline of Sonoma County. Their sold-out inaugural West of West (WOW) Wine Festival in August 2011 offered both wine lovers and the wine trade an insider taste of some of the most acclaimed coolclimate Pinot Noirs, Chardonnays and Syrahs being created today. In the same spirit, this special tasting is now hosted in NYC as well as the annual Aug. 3 – 4 WOW Wine
