In Sonoma Valley, a collective of 10 independent wineries producing smaller amounts of artisanal, limited-production, award-winning, world-class wines form Eighth Street Wineries. Next Saturday, February 25th, this incredible collective will host their semiannual Eighth Street Wineries Open House. Visitors will find wines from each winery in one location – the warehouse. Amid stacked barrels of wine and the unmistakable scent of the wines aging inside the barrels, guests will find almost 20 varietals of current releases and library wines to taste. Local restaurants and caterers will offer delicious, gourmet foods created to be paired with these superb wines.
