You'll be hard pressed to find a more fitting place in Wine Country to fête Earth Day than Green Valley.  Here, at bubbly hot spot Iron Horse Vineyards, a handful of eco-abiding Russian River wineries will turn their enviro-consciousness westward come April 18 as they highlight ocean conservation. To wit, this year's event, dubbed Green Valley Goes Blue, promises a sweet lineup of ocean-inspired fare and fanfare, from Hog Island oysters to a fish taco truck to a speaker who's logged time as a National Geographic underwater explorer.
Green Goes Blue
Participating wineries - whose cool climate wines should pair marvelously with oceanic fare - include DeLoach Vineyards, Dutton-Goldfield Winery, Freeman Vineyard & Winery, Hartford Family Winery, Iron Horse Vineyards, Marimar Estate, Orogeny and Sequana Vineyards.  VIPs can look forward to California Osetra Caviar nibbles, while all can anticipate rocking out to the sounds of aptly named Sonoma pick-up band Octopus Garden & the Rock Cods.  And with event proceeds benefiting the Monterey Bay Aquarium's admirable Seafood Watch Program, we can't think of a better place to be blue - er, green - come this Earth Day.  $50 general admission, $250 VIP.
