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.

Seminar package includes admission to the tasting and seminar, plus a threecourse prix fixe dinner at Dry Creek Kitchen for $99 per person (not including tax / gratuity).  Seminar wines are available for purchase at dinner at retail pricing.
