Clad in vintage old-school letterman’s jackets, leisure suits and cheerleading outfits, members of the Sonoma Valley Vintners and Growers Alliance rally for their annual photo shoot. With the theme “Homecoming,” the picture will become the promotional poster for the 19th annual Sonoma Valley Harvest Wine Auction, set for Sept. 4 at Cline Cellars.
The throwback attire enlivened the festive gathering, as did private stash wines that had thankfully aged much better. “Everybody had a great time,” said Stephanie Halm, SVVGA marketing director, particularly as the party moved on to EDK.
The auction caps off a series of events in the 2011 Sonoma Wine Country Weekend. For the complete schedule see SonomaWineCountryWeekend.com.
