Event description

Description

roast verb \ˈrōst\ : a banquet honoring a person who is subjected to humorous tongue-in-cheek ridicule by friends

Join KSVY at a very elegant evening with dinner and an entertaining roast of long time Sonoma local, John Petricka. On March 23rd, some very special guests will lovingly ridicule Petricka, local cabinet maker and wine grape grower. A gourmet dinner will follow a champagne reception by Breathless Wines. Wine pouring will include B.R. Cohn’s Merlot from Petricka Vineyards and Corner 103. On the menu: Beef Wellington, Sonoma salad, twice baked potato and John’s (secret surprise) favorite dessert.

Jon Shearer will be playing Jazz guitar.

Please join us for a unique, hot ticket event in Sonoma, all for a donation of $125!

100% of proceeds benefit KSVY and SVTV.

March 23, 2017 at the Sonoma Valley Woman’s Club. Doors open at 6:30pm.

About John

John Petricka grew up in Larkspur, California and moved to Sonoma in 1970 when he bought a ranch. He’s been a master cabinet builder since 1973 and is the owner of Plaza Cabinetry. Petricka’s fine craftsmanship can be found throughout homes and wineries in Sonoma, including inside B.R. Cohn’s own tasting room.

John met Bruce Cohn after winning Sonoma Music Festival concert tickets on KFOG, an event Cohn produced for years. Their paths crossed later in 2004 as John began selling his Merlot grapes to B.R. Cohn Winery.

Petricka’s favorite hobby is collecting classic cars. His favorite is a 1962 Cadillac convertible, white with lipstick red interior. It has carried many parade grand marshals.

John’s favorite wine is Merlot because he says it goes easily with many foods including cheese, turkey, steak and is great with BBQ. If you’re on the fence about Merlot, try it! Forbes.com just featured Petricka Merlot, designating it as among the very best of this varietal in California.


Fun Fact about John: He's a big fan of the “I Love Lucy” show, so much so that he named his two youngest kids Lucy and Desimond. He also named the street he lives on Desilu Drive.
