Single Vineyard Night on June 4th 2011 from 6:30 (5:30 for VIP Reception) to 10:00 p.m. at Thomas George Estates in Healdsburg, California.

During the Single Vineyard tasting, RRVW’s next generation “Cellar Teams” will promote their Adventure Auction Lots for Group bidding, an economy friendly way to raise funds for RRVW to continue their work to preserve the region’s agriculture legacy through marketing and education. Hosted by millennial vintners and growers, these lots are designed for 6 to 10 people to join together and share cost on future adventures in the Russian River Valley.
This year one lot will be co-hosted by Thomas George Estates and Healdsburg Active 20/30 club. Proceeds will go to fund the Coddingtown Mall Gift Cards allowing children from homeless shelters, Boys & Girls Clubs and other children’s groups to shop for school clothes.
