Grape to Glass Pre-Harvest Party
Event Type: Charity Event,Trade Tasting/Fair,Other
Description: Taking place on August 17 at Richard and Saralee's Vineyard, this year's event marks the 30th Anniversary of the Russian River Valley as a designated appellation, and in honor of this landmark, the theme is "Back to Our Roots."
In line with honoring the founding members of the Russian River Valley Winegrowers Association, several of the original members will be in attendance, as well as over 50 local Russian River wineries who will be sharing their latest boutique releases before they are made available to the public.
Tickets are $85 per person and the party starts with a tasting reception at 4 pm showcasing the wineries and growers of the Russian River Valley along with local restaurants, caterers and food purveyors offering small bites that pair nicely with our world class wines. While guests wine and dine on fresh local delicacies, they are also welcome to stroll through the park-like setting at Richard’s Grove & Saralee’s Vineyard and view the work of local artists and place their bid on silent auction items of oversized and special bottlings, restaurant dinners, gift baskets and more.
Following the reception will be a savory barbecue dinner with all of the fixings. And new this year, the Vineyard Academy Culinary Arts Department at Windsor High school will make one of the largest apple pies ever! The evening will round out with rocking live music from Urban Oasis until the sun sets around 9 p.m. and it starts to cool down in the vineyards.
