The 13th Annual Pinot on the River event was held on Sunday, October 23rd on the Healdsburg Plaza. The tasting event included more than 80 area wineries and attracted approximately 1,000 guests from across North America.
Guests were treated to a stunning afternoon tasting some of the best Pinot Noirs California has to offer. In addition to all the wonderful wines available for tasting, event guests had the opportunity to bid on over 110 silent auction lots generously donated by wineries from across the state. Guests also had the opportunity to cast their votes for the Pinot on the River People’s Choice Award. For the sixth consecutive year the winner was Papapietro Perry Winery of Healdsburg.
Funds raised from the event will be used to support summer camps and afterschool programs throughout Sonoma County. Boys & Girls Clubs of Central Sonoma County CEO Jennifer Weiss said “A beautiful setting, amazing wines, and incredibly generous people made for a day of fun and tremendous support for our 6,000 Club members.”
