Join us on August 13 at the Wind to Wine Festival | Harvest 2022!
On August 13, the Petaluma Gap Winegrowers will be pouring their wines to celebrate the upcoming harvest and another year of award-winning releases. A wide array of wines will be poured, with Pinot Noir being featured, due to its prominence in the Petaluma Gap AVA and in advance of National Pinot Noir Day the following week. VIP entry will begin at 1 PM and General Admission at 2 PM with wine tasting, food, live music and storytelling until 4 PM. Participating wineries include Adobe Road, Brooks Note Winery, Bruliam Wines, Carpenter Wines, Cline Cellars, Dutton-Goldfield, Ernest Vineyards, Guarachi Family Wines, Gust Wines, Keller Estate, Kendall-Jackson, Light of Day Wines, McEvoy Ranch, Montagne Russe Wines, Panther Ridge, Ron Noble Wines, Sangiacomo Family Wines, Thirty-Seven, Trombetta Family and more.
Winemakers will be sharing their most interesting winemaking tales in the “story room” inside the historic barn at the ranch and several pre-recorded interviews from the Petaluma Historical Museum will be broadcast about the history of wine-grape growing in the Petaluma area. Event attendees will enjoy delicious bites from OTL Fine Catering, and a gourmet popcorn booth, featuring flavored popcorn to pair with Petaluma Gap wines, hosted by Presenting Sponsor American AgCredit. For entertainment, guests will be treated to the masterful classical and Flamenco guitar sounds of Bay Area musician Mark Taylor. Lastly, firefighters from the Lakeville Volunteer Fire Department will be on-site to share tips on fire safety and showcase one of their fire engines.
The festival will take place in Petaluma at the historic Gambonini Family Ranch located on Old Lakeville Road #3; the ranch was previously used for dairy farming and includes the historic hay barn and an outdoor patio adjacent to where the Gambonini family plans to plant a vineyard. The barn was built more than 100 years ago and has been restored with its heavy old redwood beams, sliding doors, and expansive windows to take in the spectacular hillside vistas.
