October 9th is the day Sonoma changed. Late in the night, fires that started over the mountain range near Calistoga in Napa Valley quickly swept over the hills and engufged the northern part of Santa Rosa, destroying a community and killing many. The images and video were stunning, and portrayed devastation of biblical proportions.
Yet … most of Sonoma County was untouched by the fires.
In this new class we’ll examine the impact of the fires, the exact spots that were hit the hardest, and how communities are rebuidling. We’ll tell these stories in the framework of Sonoma County wine in general, traveling from the coast to the inland mountains, explaining the different terroirs, micro-climates, and what to look for and expect when traveling through the region.
Most importantly, we will show you that NOW is the time to go to Sonoma, for the wines of the region have never been better.
Expect comprehensive maps, cools handouts, tons of travel suggestions, and much more. We will taste four incredible selections from Sonoma County to emphasize the points discussed. You’ll leave an expert on Sonoma County wines and travel!
