Petaluma Gap Wind to Wine Festival Tickets Now on Sale


Tickets are limited and sold out last year!

Petaluma, CA—May 15, 2023.  Ticket sales opened today for the Petaluma Gap Winegrowers’ popular, annual Wind to Wine Festival, celebrating the distinct and highly-awarded wines grown in the wind-driven Petaluma Gap American Viticultural Area (AVA).  To ensure a quality experience, tickets to the event, which takes place at SOMO Village in Rohnert Park on Saturday, August 5, are limited, with VIP tickets allowing early access, a more intimate experience, and the opportunity to taste limited-release and large-format wines and barrel samples during the early hours of the event.

Once again, the Wind to Wine Festival will feature the AVA’s signature varietals—Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, and Syrah—with additional wines offered from winemakers pushing the cool climate envelope with their Albariño, Pinot Gris, Grenache, Malbec, and Cabernet Sauvignon, among others. Over the last year, the number of 90+ Point Wines from the AVA has substantially increased, and many will be offered for tasting, along with wines from winemakers without tasting rooms, making it a rare opportunity to taste these wines before purchasing.

In addition to the more than 25 wineries pouring their wines, eventgoers will be treated to artisanal cheese pairings by Point Reyes Cheese Company, wine-infused chocolates by Bert’s Desserts, and savory bites catered by the culinary talents of Sally Tomatoes. Back this year, winemakers and growers will entertain and educate with behind-the-scenes tales at the Petaluma Gap Story Corner and guests will enjoy live classical and flamenco-style guitar outside in the towering redwood grove, by local favorite, Mark Taylor.

A wide array of wines will be available to taste, with Pinot Noir being featured due to its prominence in the Petaluma Gap American Viticultural Area (AVA) and in advance of National Pinot Noir Day later in the month.
