Wine & Food Affair is the premier event for Wine Road Sonoma County! Join us for a weekend of Wine & Food pairings in the Alexander, Dry Creek and Russian River Valleys. All of the wineries participating will have a favorite winery recipe which they will prepare both days for you to sample, along with the perfect wine.
Winemaker Breakfast and Q & A on Saturday November 4th from 9am - 10:30am at Martinelli Winery 3360 River Rd, Windsor, CA. Tickets must be purchased for this added event during registration.Join winemakers from Martinelli Winery, Roadhouse Winery, and Viszlay Vineyards for a casual morning of Q & A along with a breakfast before heading out to Wine & Food Affair. This is an open forum for guests to meet and chat with winemakers in a casual breakfast setting with Q & A. This is not a wine tasting experience, simply breakfast and conversation.
For compliance with Sonoma County "best practices" for events we MUST enforce a limited number of people checking in at each winery location. We cannot make exceptions, once a winery has reached their limit for check-ins you will need to select another winery and check-in at that location.
All buses are banned from Wine Road events. A van is not a bus, but a bus of any size is just that - a bus. Buses are not allowed. Wineries will turn you away at the parking lot.
REFUND POLICY: Sales are FINAL and non - refundable. No full or partial refunds are given to customers who will miss the event. The ticket is valid only on the date[s] of the event as listed and may not be exchanged or redeemed for any other dates. EXCEPTION - if we cancel this particular event, refunds will be issued. We do not foresee that happening.
