Please join us on Sunday afternoons for the Sonoma County Wine Pioneers Series.  Each segment in the monthly series consists of an interactive seminar and wine tasting where you will be able to taste and listen to winemakers speak about unique and interesting topics in the wine world.  These seminars are educational, fun, and approachable to the novice wine lover, but also engaging to the more advance wine enthusiast.  Most significantly, guests not only have the opportunity to speak to legendary Sonoma County winemakers, but also discover up and coming stars.

This September we're focusing on what is possibly the most historic AVA in Sonoma, with its shining stars in attendance:

September 15:  Sonoma Valley AVA
Michael McNeal of Hanzell Winery
Steve Hall of Biale Winery
Don Van Staaveren of Three Sticks Winery
