Underground Wine Events
Underground Wine Events: Sonoma was a fundraiser for the Active 20-30 Club of Sebastopol #63.
Underground Wine Events: Sonoma, a new event dedicated to the small, independent producers of Sonoma County, hosted its inaugural tasting on February 24, 2018 from 2pm-5pm at Longboard Vineyards in Healdsburg, CA. Each participating producer showcased the wines they pour their heart and soul into year after year. They all have enormous respect for the land, for their community, and for the wine they create. Each comes with a unique story – some are veterans, some newcomers, but all will amaze with their philosophy and the quality of their wines. For those wine lovers who visit Sonoma and wonder: "Where can I find the fantastic, unknown wines from the small guys? How can I find the off the beaten track wineries?" These wineries are the ones to know about! The event was open to members of the media and to the public for a fee of $49 per person.
Underground Wine Events is brought to you by two industry veterans who are passionate about helping the family-owned, unique producers thrive: Elizabeth Schneider, host of the award-winning Wine for Normal People podcast and author of the upcoming book of the same title, who has a passion for small producers, and Laura Perret Fontana, digital media consultant, whose family owned a small winery in St. Helena and who looks at this event as a chance to make a difference for the small wineries run by people like her parents.
