Hawkeye,
hope you see this here...thought it best to keep the info together...
the information I know of is found at the sonoma valley wine growers association website. I THINK its www.SVWGA.com, but could be mistaken and unfortunately my notebook with that information is still somewhere in the cardbord sea inside this house.
As far as i I know they will have it again in the spring, but the very next one is in NOvember of this year.

I received word that this event may become a quarterly offering in Sonoma Valley. The first offering was well received and so its going to be offered again this fall. If this also goes well, there is a thought to make it a quarterly event. It offers a lot of choices,so stay tuned.

This is a May event that is taking the place of the Sonoma Passport that was held in years passed.
2011 was the first incarnation of the event and we felt that it was, overall, a very good idea with a lot of potential.
Briefly ( imagine that from me! ), this event offers the opportunity to explore Sonoma Valley wineries in very small, chauffered tour groups. Depending on the winery, you may meet the winemaker, the vineyard manager, the entire staff or just a tasting room manager. In every case you will receive an education about the winery and the wines produced there. Tastings will depend on the wine available and how it coincides with the tour theme.
We felt that it was a fantastic first effort this year. The concept is sound, the convenience of being driven and not having the concern over how much to taste and spit was such a huge relief, the price is certainly reasonable, and having access to the primaries at the wineries were all huge pluses. Better weather would have helped, but that isn't something you can control.
In our opinion, this is definitely an event worth attending and we hope that it continues and becomes as big a staple for the area as the Passport and Barrel Tasting weekends are for the upper county.
