|16th Annual Grape to Glass Hog in the Fog|
Pre-Harvest Party and Farm Market in Russian River Valley at Saralee's Vineyard and Richard's Grove
There might be some fog and quite definitely there will be hog at the 16th Annual Grape to Glass Hog in the Fog Pre-Harvest Party on Saturday, August 20 in the heart of Sonoma County’s wine country – the Russian River Valley.
The Russian River Valley Winegrowers invite you to join our winemakers and growers as we celebrate the fruits of our labor…drinking great wine, feasting off the land and dancing the night away at this unique Pre-Harvest Party.
The party starts with a wine tasting reception and Farmer’s Market at 4 pm showcasing more than 70 wineries, growers and producers of the Russian River Valley Winegrowers. Taste Russian River Valley wines, sample fresh and local delicacies from local restaurants and caterers and shop for fresh produce and products from local artisan food producers. Wine, dine and shop while you stroll through the park-like setting at Richard’s Grove & Saralee’s Vineyard viewing the work of local artists; and bidding on the silent auction of oversized and special bottlings, restaurant dinners and gift baskets.
Here comes the hog ….following the reception will be a feast like no other … a savory barbecue dinner of pulled pork, steak, chicken and all the fixins. And, of course we will have homemade Gravenstein apple pie fresh warmed in the wood brick oven for dessert and topped with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
If you love the Russian River Valley area then you won’t want to miss the spectacular live auction filled with excursions and overnight stays to land you back in the Russian River Valley for more wine and excitement. The night wraps up with music by Urban Oasis playing an upbeat and entertaining mixture of rock, blues, latin and jazz - covers and originals.
Reserve a table for 10 people to feast together -- includes two bottles of Russian River Valley wine and two VIP parking passes; or a table of six includes one bottle of wine. Individual tickets are $75 per person. Visit www.rrvw.org to reserve a table or a seat or call 707-521-2534 for more information.
