Eat, Drink, and Be Green:  Sebastopol California

It’s a fun, grass-roots, eco-event on April 20th, featuring a walk around tasting of spring wine releases from nearby Green Valley.  The festival features DeLoach Vineyards, Dutton-Goldfield, Freeman Family Winery, Hartford Court, Iron Horse Vineyards, Marimar Estate, Orogeny and Patz & Hall.
