Experience highlights
This 3-hour exploration of Californian vineyards is led by Daphne Feng, a certified sommelier and Operations Manager for Vinity Wine Company. Sonoma County wineries are among the leaders in the organic wine movement but the percentage of vineyard land that’s certified organic is still small. During this experience, participants will have the chance to speak to local winemakers and learn about the alternative approaches of organic growing and winemaking that set these wineries apart. Guided by Daphne’s expertise and deep connections with the industry, participants will not only taste and compare wines, but also gain a unique and layered perspective on the rich history and fascinating economics behind this popular beverage. Participants are welcome to request to visit a specific vineyard, or allow Daphne to make recommendations from the following list: • Benziger Family Winery • Amapola Creek Vineyards and Winery • Westwood Estate • Hamel Family Wines • Quivira Vineyards & Winery • Preston of Dry Creek • Truett-Hurst Winery • DaVero Farms and Winery • Deloach Vineyards • Horse & Plow
