It’s that time of year again! Fall arrived with a bang this morning, after a brief Indian Summer. It’s also time to spotlight one of my favorite events: Pinot on the River, on October 23rd. This spectacular showcase of Pinot Noir is probably one of the best ways to taste all of what Sonoma County (and more) has to offer in terms of Pinot Noir, and is also a great way to support the Boys & Girls Clubs of Central Sonoma. This year, Pinot on the River once again takes place on the square in Healdsburg. With ample parking nearby, and a collection of tasting rooms surrounding the event, it is sure to be a bustling weekend. A highlight of this event is the silent auction and raffle, with an instant wine cellar. 6 bottle lots from famous winemakers and much more available for your enjoyment. There will also be a collection of artisan food vendors, so bring some cash and an appetite! Among some of the wineries pouring, you can enjoy some of my favorites: Balletto Vineyards. Bucher Wines Donum Estate Ellipsis Wine Company FEL Wines Handley Cellars J Cage Cellars Kokomo Winery La Pitchoune LIOCO Papapietro Perry Peay Vineyards Wine Guerrilla Wrath And even some that are new to me! Apriori Cellar Bailarin Cellars Balverne Vineyards Blue Farm Wines Dunstan Wines E16 Wine Company Jigar Patel Wines INC Lando Wines Luli Wines Occidental Road Cellars Right Side, LLC The Calling Vaughn Duffy Wines Tickets are $75 for General Admission, and $90 for early VIP entry but get yours early since they are sure to sell out! Support the Boys & Girls Clubs of Central Sonoma, and come out and taste some fabu-luscious Pinot Noir with me! The Boys & Girls Clubs of Central Sonoma County provide much needed family services and activities for Sonoma County youth. They couldn’t do it without your support, so if you live, work, or spend time in the County, please support this worthy cause by buying a ticket or donating today.
