Community & Connection in
"Our Wine Country" For You.
Dear Out in the Vineyard Family,
My heart goes out to all that have been affected by COVID-19.
We are living in fragile times. We need to be together to celebrate what Out In The Vineyard and Gay Wine Week have always been about--our core values of Community and Connection. Your health and well-being is of the utmost importance to me. With that in mind, I've decided not to move forward with Gay Wine Week this summer. We will put these plans on hold as we prepare for an even better celebration next July.
I will miss seeing everyone enjoying Our Wine Country here in Sonoma: the food, the wine, the ambiance, and above all making new friends.
I will miss that moment when the sun sets and the moon rises with the rolling hills around us from the vineyards of Chateau St. Jean during the Twilight T-Dance.
I will miss the smiles and hugs from friends near and far.
I will also miss the opportunity to raise funds for Face to Face, my beneficiary for Gay Wine Week. With your help, we have raised over $400,000 to help end HIV in Sonoma County. It is heartbreaking to me not to be able to support the organization that has given so much to our community so they can continue doing their vital work.
But I will not miss the opportunity to bring people together in a different way. I'm excited to announce that I'm taking Gay Wine Week Virtual! Plan on keeping the weekend of July 17-19th open as I am working on ways to bring the magic of Sonoma into your home.
Be on the lookout for information on the exciting and fun ways that we can still come together to celebrate Food, Wine & Wine Country!
Cheers in Health,
Owner, Out in the Vineyard
