Every year since 1984, the Holiday Open House presents wineries from the Sonoma Valley region and “sweet and savory nibbles.” The festival runs Friday November 23 and Saturday November 24. This year’s addition will be one of the best yet with 20 wineries participating. The list includes:
Audelssa, Benzinger, Blackstone, Chateau St. Jean, Eric Ross, Imagery Estate, Kaz Winery, Kenwood, Kunde Estate, Landmark, Ledson, Loxton Cellars, Mayo Winery, Muscardini Cellars & Ty Caton, SL Cellars, The Wine Room, VJB Cellars, Valley of the Moon, and Wellington.
The real treat is the value this wonderful Holiday Open House represents. Here is what you get: Tastings at all 20 wineries of their best varietals and vintages; Open House style access to the grounds, expert service, AND small plate tapas style appetizers. To finish off your moving meal is chocolate tastings. All the wine, food, and chocolate you can devour for $30 per person. Now here is the real kicker. Your $30 ticket covers both days of the event.
I defy anyone to show me a better deal. A Festival with world class wineries like Chateau St.Jean, Landmark, and Eric Ross along with 17 of their winery neighbors serving all you can taste. Culinary offerings at every stop and as much chocolate as you can possibly find room for after all of the wine and food.
Mark this event on your calender; it is not to be missed.
