Honoring Our Heritage
There is nothing better than sharing a glass of wine with friends, tasting some fine Sonoma Cuisine, and dancing under the stars. All of this happens at the Opening Night Gala in the historic Sonoma Barracks. Live music, over 50 wineries pouring their best varietals, food tastings by Sonoma Valley restaurants, specialty shops, and caterers all to enjoy at your leisure.
Not only is the Opening Night Gala about food, wine, and great entertainment, but like the Vintage Festival itself, it is about celebration. This is a local Sonoma tradition you don’t want to miss! Purchase your Friday night gala tickets below. Tickets to the Friday night gala are only available online or at the door the night of the event.
