Kendall-Jackson Wine Estate & Gardens will host the program on September 5, showcasing the remarkable diversity of Sonoma County wine region and culinary experts.
For the first time ever Taste of Sonoma, presented by Visa Signature, will be held at the scenic Kendall-Jackson Wine Estate & Gardens. The program features walk-around tastings, a chefs’ pavilion, guided wine seminars, and themed lounges. Taking place on Saturday September 5, 2020, the Kendall-Jackson Wine Estate & Gardens features stunning culinary and flower gardens throughout the property, and provides the idyllic backdrop for Taste of Sonoma, offering visitors a world-class wine and culinary experience.
“We are honored to host Taste of Sonoma at my family’s winery,” says second-generation vintner Christopher Jackson. “After experiencing the exceptional event for years, we are certain that Kendall-Jackson, known as the premier food and wine destination in Sonoma County, will complement the program and enhance the overall feel of the day.”
Taste of Sonoma will be nestled throughout Kendall-Jackson’s culinary gardens, as well as the winery’s great lawn and al fresco patio. The Jackson family planted these gardens with the goal of providing fresh, seasonal, and sustainable produce that inspire the wine and food pairings created by Kendall-Jackson’s culinary team. In addition, the wine sensory gardens were designed to help guests develop a vocabulary for describing their wines, a truly invaluable tool. A veritable cornucopia of beauty and flavor, the gardens are a core component of Kendall-Jackson’s commitment to wine and food education.
At Taste of Sonoma, the most renowned wineries and chefs come together for a one-day immersive lineup that will include a walk-around wine grand tasting area with wineries grouped by their AVA designations and a chefs’ pavilion. Wine Talk Seminars will offer informative, lively panel discussions and focused tastings with renowned Sonoma County winemakers. Luxurious themed lounges will serve bubbles, bright whites and exceptional red wines paired with mouthwatering dishes and phenomenal entertainment. The Library, a VIP ticketholder lounge, will offer an opportunity to learn about Sonoma County aged and reserve quality wines. This event is a unique opportunity to experience the diversity of Sonoma County’s 18 AVAs where more than 60 grape varietals are grown.
