Eat, Sip, and Be Merry Ticket Contest!!!

CONGRATULATIONS to Kelly C for winning the pair of tickets to Eat, Sip, and Be Merry this weekend. We know you will have a great time!!! 
Please email me at with an email and phone # so I can pass your information along to the event organizers.

Don't forget, you can still purchase tickets in advance for the low price of $25, which includes $10 in "wine bucks."
Got plans for the weekend? Well cancel them because I guarantee they pale in comparison to what I have for you. Instead of doing whatever it was you were going to do, how about spending a couple days experiencing some delicious wine along the Santa Rosa Wine Trail? Bonus....I’ll give you a chance to win tickets for free!!!

 On Saturday December 8th and Sunday December 9th from 11:00-4:00pm, the members of the Santa Rosa Wine Trail are opening their doors to you for "Eat, Sip, and Be Merry". The Wine Trail members are a collection of urban wineries, restaurants, and a hotel that are within a small distance from each other and just a few minutes from downtown Santa Rosa.

Tickets for the event are $25 presale or $35 at the door. Included with your ticket is a commemorative wine glass and $10 in “wine bucks” to be used at one of the participating wineries. So really it is only $15 if you purchase in advance. I have tasted from many of this producers and even at full price these tickets are a steal. Since we want you to be safe and responsible, tickets for designated drivers are only $5 and include special activities and non-alcoholic beverages.

Participating wineries are Carol Shelton, D’Argenzio, Inspiration, Krutz Family Cellars, Old World, Paradise Ridge, Sheldon, Siduri/Novy, Two Shepherds, and the collective at Vinoteca. There will be live music, activities, exclusive tours, and food trucks at the participating wineries. This is sure to be a good time and I know we all need a break from the recent rains.

Tickets are available at or at the door of any of the participating wineries.


We are giving away a pair of tickets for FREE! All you have to do is enter a comment below to the question:

“If you were to give wine to someone this holiday season (assuming they’re on your ‘nice’ list) which wine from one of our participating wineries would you give them?”

A winner will be selected randomly on thisThursday night so please include your full name and email address I can reach you at.

  1. I love Old Vine Zins, so maybe the Estate Old Vine Zin from Inspiration Vineyards! -Kelly C.

  2. I'd bring a 2007 Krutz Family Cellars Cab Sauv because it's smooth, sweet, and rich - these are qualities my family is lacking.
