Despite a Challenging Economy, Sonoma’s Wine Community Pulls out all the Stops – Including Online Auction, Live Auction, Toga Party, and Special Discounts for Visa Signature Cardholders – To Raise Much Needed Funds for Local Charities.
Sonoma, CA (August 10, 2009) – Sonoma Wine Country Weekend, presented by Visa Signature® has released the list of auction lots for the 17th Annual Sonoma Valley Harvest Wine Auction, presented by Trilogy Glass & Packaging, which takes place Sunday, September 6 on the grounds of Cline Cellars in Sonoma. The famously irreverent auction, which this year sports the theme “Party with Us and You’ll Want to Come Bacchus”, wraps up Sonoma Wine Country Weekend, the annual three day fundraiser and pre-harvest celebration that also features Showcase: Taste of Sonoma and has to date raised more than $8 million for local charities. This year’s auction will see fewer, yet more impressive, individual lots in an effort to reign in the live auction portion of the day and allow more time for revelers to enjoy the wines, food, and conviviality that makes the Sonoma Valley Harvest Wine Auction one of the wine world’s biggest parties of the year. Tickets to the 17th Annual Sonoma Valley Harvest Wine Auction are $500 per person, or $450 for Visa Signature cardholders. Seating is limited. For ticket purchase and full list of auction lots, visit www.SonomaWineCountryWeekend.com.
