You see the words “Russian River” or “Sonoma County” on a bottle of wine, and chances are good you’re going to like what comes out. Perfect pinots, expressive chardonnays … Sonoma wines are often made by small producers with big dreams. This area is sort of the romantic small town adjacent to the powerhouse that is Napa Valley.
Well, words like Sonoma and Russian River are all you’re going to see on bottles at a special Sonoma County Grand Wine Tasting at The Wrigley Mansion on Tuesday, February 18.
Over a dozen wineries are headed to Phoenix for “A Taste of Sonoma County,” a blockbuster tasting that will give you the opportunity to try over 50 wines while learning about the region and noshing on Wrigley-made hors d’oeuvres.
Wineries expected: Alexander Valley, Balletto, Carol Shelton, Collier Falls, Hook & Ladder, Inman Family, Jordan, Lost Canyon, Rodney Strong, Woodenhead, and many more.
The event costs $50 in advance ($60 at the door, if it’s not sold out) and runs from 6:30pm to 9pm. It’s being produced by these folks: www.wineroad.com
