Event Details

New Start Time: To accomodate the Healdsburgites and the FFA parade, we are now starting at 430!

Thursday May 26th  is a global celebration of the Chardonnay grape. Wine lovers from around the world will be tasting and posting all sorts of moments using the #Chardonnay hash tag on all social media sites.

In celebration, I am holding a private tasting at my new Farm/Vineyard in the Greenhouse. There is no charge for the event, but a $5 donation to help defray expenses is appreciated.

Each table is staffed by a Winery representative (if not owner) and available answer questions. Food pairings will be available at most tables.

The Greenhouse will have 8 tables,  music, stemware. Out the back door of the greenhouse, there will be an outside lounge area, in the newly cleared, future Grenache vineyard. The  #chardonnay Twitter feed will be streaming live on large screen. Social Media celebrity Rick Bakas, the founder of the event, will be joining us as well.

Parking: VERY Important, please see details below. Please try to carpool and come 2 per car.

Inviting Others: Space (and parking) is limited, thus not an open invite. Please share the login password responsibly. (which is notcougarjuice )  If you RVSP and later can not attend, please cancel. Should the event fill, I will keep a waitlist.

Max of 3 per person. Have others register themselves, thanks! Name tags will be printed from your RSVP info provided.
