The Sonoma County Harvest Fair is upon us! We’ve already had our Wine Road Members blow out the rankings with the 2014 Award Winning Wines wine and now we are ready to celebrate the fruits of our labor, literally.

The Harvest Fair sets out to pay tribute to our hard working food and beverage businesses with three days of eating and drinking like true Sonoma County royalty. From some of the areas renowned chefs to many samples of local beer, wine and cider, you’ll be over-indulgent with all the goodies offered.

Check out all of your favorite industry vendors and peruse the dinners you can attend this weekend.

Have you always wanted to work harvest but never had the time? Join the World Champion Grape Stomp for a chance to wine $1,500
