Best. Party. Ever.

The beautiful Rodney Strong Vineyards will host the Best. Party. Ever. on Friday, September 15, with a fabulous evening of exceptional wine, festive food and live music on The Green. Participating SCWA vintners will join auction guests to share more about this year’s incredible auction lots, with many pouring specially selected wines during the evening’s festivities. New this year – a limited number of Best. Party. Ever. Friday-evening-only tickets are available for additional supporters who would like to join the festivities and participate in one of the SCWA weekend events.


Live Auction

The live auction will take place on Saturday, September 16, at La Crema Estate at Saralee’s Vineyard where guests will raise their paddles to make a difference in Sonoma County. Attendees will have the opportunity to meet representatives from the SCVF beneficiary nonprofits and learn more about organizations that have benefited from the funds raised at SCWA. The exclusive live auction lots will feature rare wines and once-in-a-lifetime trips as well as all-inclusive wine and culinary experiences in Sonoma County and around the world. The generosity of SCWA bidders and donors helps to support nonprofit organizations throughout Sonoma County focused on education and literacy, health and human services, the environment, arts and culture, and SCVF Emergency Relief Fund. These funds have supported more nonprofits than any other fundraising event in Sonoma County.
“We look forward to bringing our Sonoma County community back together again to raise funds for the local nonprofits who continue to provide critical services and emergency aid to those who are most in need,” said Michael Haney, Sonoma County Vintners Foundation Executive Director. “We are grateful for the ongoing support of our vintners, donors and sponsor partners which allows SCVF to sustainably fund the amazing work done by these organizations.”

Cathryn Couch, Founder and CEO of Ceres Community Project said, “Ceres Community Project is deeply grateful for the funding we receive annually from Sonoma County Vintners Foundation, especially during the past several years, when demand for our services has more than doubled. Thank you!”
