S2S_lockV2The final afternoon of Sonoma Wine Country Weekend is, in fact, the starting point for an unforgettable journey. And this year is going to be wild, as the Grand Lawn of Chateau St. Jean will be transformed into the plains of Africa.
The flagship event of Sonoma Wine Country Weekend, the Sonoma Harvest Wine Auction is Sonoma County’s largest and most fun fundraising event, bringing together the wine community and caring donors to raise essential funds that make our world-class wine region a better place by supporting our kids and our community.

Your ticket not only offers you passage into the Wine Spectator Auction Tent, but it also allows you to mingle with Sonoma’s finest winemakers, as each table will be presided over by a local Vintner or Grower who will share not only their finest wines, but great stories, too!

This event offers the bidder a selection of rare world-class experiences and wines under the tent, and an opportunity to join their neighbors in the wine community in supporting charities that will build a better future throughout Sonoma County. Your donations support deserving Sonoma County charities aiding efforts to support youth and children to ensure their success, preserve our environment for future generations, and provide for basic unmet health needs and services which improve the welfare of our local communities.

To make your table reservation, please call or email our concierge today!

With this equipment, we are better able to treat patients at their bedside and make more immediate decisions for their care. #SWCWThe Proceeds Matter!!

Meet Dean Vincent Borgioni, Annadel Estate Winery
Self-proclaimed “beach bum and traveling motorcycle guy” Dean Borgioni discovered Annadel Estate Winery and, quite unexpectedly, put down roots. He transformed this crumbling grand dame into a flourishing flower farm, event destination and world-class winery. Inspired by his Italian grandparents, who left their culture behind when they immigrated to the States, Dean’s life’s work is sharing the magic of Annadel—an expression of heritage, family and love. ‪#SWCW #SonomaValleyThe Proceeds Matter!

Meet Suzy and Squire Fridell, Glenlyon Winery

Meet Phil Staehle, Enkidu Wines

Have you heard the story of Enkidu? He was King Gilgamesh’s sidekick, and the person who taught him to appreciate nature, beauty and balance. Enkidu’s story resonated with Phil Staehle so much that he named his winery AND his dog after him. 
Like Enkidu, Phil hopes to introduce you to the revelations of the natural world through his conscientiously crafted wines. See him at Sonoma Wine Country Weekend -- get your tickets today! ‪#‎SWCW‬The Proceeds Matter!
