Hospices of Sonoma Barrel Auction
Hospices of Sonoma, a Pinot Noir barrel auction, will be held on April 20 and 21. The 2 day event includes a gala barrel tasting, auction, and 17 winery tasting dinners. 37 carefully chosen wineries will offer specially made Pinot Noir for auction.
The largest Pinot Noir barrel auction in the United States, Hospices of Sonoma is modeled after Hospices de Beaune in Burgundy, France. This annual charity event draws many of the world’s top wine collectors and luminaries. All proceeds are donated to hospitals for the underprivileged.
Hospices of Sonoma will benefit The Children’s Village of Sonoma County, Barry Zito’s Strikeouts for Troops Foundation, the Okizu Foundation, and the WCC Charitable Foundation.
Some of the wineries that will have dinners include Halleck Vineyard, Gloria Ferrer, Hartford Family Wines, J Vineyards & Winery, Russian Hill Estate, Olivet Lane, De Loach, Chasseur, The Donum Estate, Schug Estate, Emeritus Vineyards, and Dutton Estate.
