Full Flavors of Sonoma County at Taste of Sonoma Event

macMurrayRanch_TasteOfSonoma.jpgThe full flavors of Sonoma County will be in the spotlight at the 33rd annual Taste of Sonoma at MacMurray Ranch in Healdsburg, California on Saturday, September 1, 2012 as part of the 5th annual Sonoma Wine Country Weekend, presented by Visa Signature®. Taste of Sonoma at MacMurray Ranch is a day-long event that features more than 170 wineries and 60 of Sonoma County's top chefs and food purveyors as well as a multitude of educational and entertaining events staged at a quintessential, "only in Sonoma" setting.

Kate MacMurray is the honorary host of Taste of Sonoma at MacMurray Ranch which takes place on the historic property and vineyard site that her father, the late actor Fred MacMurray, purchased decades ago. Guests are invited to sip and savor while soaking up the experience of the intimate site. MacMurray Ranch is rarely open to the public and tickets should be purchased early as this event has grown in popularity and is anticipated to again sell out.

"In addition to wine and food, guests at Taste of Sonoma at MacMurray Ranch can participate in seminars, take a personalized tour of the event with a Sommelier Star, watch the ever-popular Sonoma Steel Chef Competition, luxuriate at the Gloria Ferrer Bubble Lounge, learn from a pro at the live Cooking Light Grill or elevate the entire experience by going to the newly-expanded Club Reserve for exclusive wine tasting," Maureen Cottingham, Sonoma Wine Country Weekend Co- Director.
Taste of Sonoma at MacMurray Ranch is set for Saturday, September 1 from 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. at MacMurray Ranch, 9015 Westside Road, Healdsburg, Sonoma County, California. Tickets for this single event are on sale  for $150 per person for General Admission or $195 per person for Grand Reserve tickets which allow additional privileges throughout the event and access to exclusive venues that will feature rare wines, gracious hospitality and special behind-the-scenes benefits.
