3rd Annual Fort-Ross Seaview Wine Festival, October 17, 2015

The Fort Ross-Seaview Wine Festival is a celebration of the wines from our unique Sonoma County grape growing region with its cool maritime climate, rugged topography and marine influenced soils. Here the vineyards are like islands of sunshine above a sea of coastal fog that nips at their edges during the long, slow and temperate grape growing season making it perfect for pinot noir, chardonnay and more.
