July 8, 2013 – Forestville: Acclaimed Sonoma County zinfandel producer Wine Guerrilla has announced the opening of a storefront tasting room on Route 116 in the Russian River Valley. The tasting room is on schedule to open August 1st at 6671 Front St. in downtown Forestville.
“We’re thrilled to finally be able to open our doors to the public,” says Guerrilla-in-Chief Bruce Patch of the tasting room. “Fans of the wine and members of our wine club, The Zindicate, have been asking for years where they can come to taste the wines. And now we can accommodate anyone who would like to try our zins!”
The Wine Guerrilla tasting room features an inviting, contemporary design and eye-catching artworks by the creator of the winery’s distinctive labels. In the back is a sunny patio where guests can sip their wine, and where there will be small events for wine club members as well as seasonal entertainment and more.
Wine Guerrilla has long been based in Forestville, and the tasting room will be a welcome addition to this formerly sleepy town which now also boasts a tasting room for Atascadero Creek Wines, as well as several new restaurants including Twist, Backyard and Canetti’s.
“This whole area of the Russian River Valley used to be one of the wine country’s best kept secrets,” Patch continues. “Now the word is out. And we’re pleased to be part of the next generation of wineries to be offering our wines in a retail setting to visitors and locals alike!”
