Touring Northern California Wine Country in Sonoma County is easy when special events are presented by organizations like the Russian River Valley Winegrowers who know the area best.
The 15th annual Grape to Glass weekend begins this Friday, August 20, 2010. Friday kicks off with the Cellarpass Winery Sensations Passport. Your passport allows you to choose from over 25 Russian River Valley wineries including Hop Kiln Winery, Rodney Strong Vineyards, Hanna Winery, and Twomey Cellars. After an afternoon of wine tasting enjoy, In Concert with the Artisans, on Friday night. This unique evening features a tasting of Russian River Valley wines, gourmet Sonoma County cuisine, and the talented singer/songwriter Nick Palance in a concert showcasing the amazing voice of this American tenor.
In the spirit of experiencing everything the Russian River Valley has to offer, start your Saturday morning with one of three activities that will allow you to enjoy the scenery outdoors.
