Alexander Valley Vineyards Lunch
Personalize your experience in Wine County with a special tour and Garden Lunch for eight prepared by Chef Tim Vallery of Peloton Catering. Known around the world as “AVV”, the vineyards and gardens are now operated by third generation of the Wetzel Family and located in the beautiful Alexander Valley. Bring your walking shoes, camera and binoculars. Enjoy exploring the Wetzel Family Estate, including the wine caves, Maggie Wetzel’s famous garden, and the family burial plot of Cyrus Alexander, the 19th century adventurer, rancher, gold miner and Sonoma County pioneer whose name lives on in the Alexander Valley and in Cyrus, AVV’s flagship wine.
Celebrate Sculpture with 20 Friends
The Voigt family has promoted public sculpture in Sonoma County for many years. For this event, Judy Voigt has generously invited the first 20 people to raise their paddle to peruse the sculpture in their unique home and on their ranch in Geyserville. You will have the opportunity to walk the garden paths with a guide, visit the studio, and learn about the artists and how Al Voigt mentored and facilitated new talent. In addition, you will enjoy wines and hors d’oeuvres overlooking beautiful forested woods by local popular chef, and owner of Campo Fina Restaurant, Chef Ari Rosen.
