Please note: Pre-registration is required for this site visit. Inquire at the CIC Registration Desk.

Participants will tour two vineyards in the Russian River Valley of Sonoma County, a wine growing region outside of Santa Rosa. The first stop will be at Hook and Ladder Winery, where guests will enjoy a five-flight tasting. This winery is a boutique “estate” producer, specializing in small bottlings of Pinot Noir, “Old Vine” Zinfandel, Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Bordeaux-style blends sourced from the family’s sustainably farmed vineyards and its sub-appellation, Chalk Hill. The winery also produces and sells estate-grown olive oil from their Los Amigos Ranch.

The group then will head to Kendall-Jackson Winery, where participants will enjoy a seasonal four-course lunch paired with wines. The menu will be curated by the executive chef and their team using the freshest ingredients from the Kendall-Jackson culinary garden and will include locally sourced fish and meats, Sonoma and Napa Valley cheeses, and a decadent dessert, with limited-release wines paired with every course.
