People from all over the world come to wine country for this event.
Californians have it great, some even call it living in paradise and that’s why people from all over the world come here every year.
Longtime residents believe California is divided in half; north and south. While Southern California is known for its beaches, the Northern part lays claim to wine, cheese, and the culinary arts.
Each year Out in the Vineyard’s Gay Wine Weekend celebrates the state's Northern part of life with the LGBT community, and if you want to experience the magic first hand, you're in luck, this year Gay Wine Weekend is giving someone a chance to take it all in for free. But we'll get to that in a minute.
If you go north of San Francisco about 50 miles you enter the Sonoma and Napa Valleys which naturally mimics the Mediterranean.
That temperate nature is why grapes are so hearty and happy, it makes for some great wine. And what goes best with great wine? Great friends and great food.
Those essentials are the essence of Gay Wine Weekend every year; to get away and relax with some of your closest pals, make new ones, and see some of the most scenic vistas in the country.
It is this scenery and the company of other LGBT people that draws travelers to Gay Wine Weekend in Sonoma each year. This year the event is being held from July 20 – 22.
