SANTA ROSA, Calif. – More than 25 of the Russian River Valley’s top wineries will converge in San Francisco on November 3rd and then in Sacramento on November 10 during the Russian River Valley Winegrowers’ (RRVW) Single Vineyard Night tastings. Attendees will have the opportunity to taste small-lot wines stemming from single vineyards across the acclaimed American Viticultural Area, known for its exceptional soil and favorable grape-growing climate. The Russian River Valley is one of the premier wine regions in the world for cool climate wines, especially Chardonnay and Pinot Noir.
Both Single Vineyard Night events will allow guests to visit with the wineries and growers who work in tandem to produce some of the world’s finest vintages. The ticket price includes the tasting as well as appetizers from local artisan food producers. In addition guests can bid on incredible experiences and wine offerings in the silent and live auctions. Best of all, a portion of the proceeds will be donated to local charities – in San Francisco, we’ve partnered with The Guardsmen, a group of Bay Area men mobilizing their significant talents and resources to enhance and improve the lives of at-risk youth. In Sacramento we’ll again partner with the Active 20-30 Club of Sacramento #1032. Active 20-30 is a nonprofit organization that provides adults between the ages of 20 and 39 with an opportunity for personal growth, friendships and leadership development while improving the quality of life for the special needs of children in our communities.
