Gay Wine Weekend Returning to Sonoma County July 19-21

Out in the Vineyard’s Gay Wine Weekend is expected to sell out to a record-breaking 1,000 attendees this July 19th-21st as it makes a move to the Russian River Valley and Healdsburg region of California’s Sonoma County. The event’s host hotel, Vintner’s Resort is exclusively reserved for Gay Wine Weekend guests and is centrally located to all events.


With an itinerary filled with all-new venues, wineries, restaurants, and more, attendees will experience a Gay Wine Weekend like no other, and feel good about every event knowing that a portion of proceeds will go to benefit local HIV/AIDS non-profit, Face to Face. There are currently eight diverse events featuring a host of options, including wine excursions, VIP receptions, a wine auction, tea dances, and so much more! The annual wine weekend catering to the LGBTQ+ community takes place throughout Sonoma County, and is sponsored this year by La Crema Winery.


“Out in the Vineyard’s Gay Wine Weekend is an experiential Wine Country event that brings together lovers of wine and the love that exists within our LGBTQ+ Community,” said Gary Saperstein, founder of Out in the Vineyard. “It’s a weekend filled with delicious wine, excellent food and amazing people where folks create lasting connections with new friends or old family. As with the Pink Sonoma event that takes place in the spring and raises money for Positive Images, a Sonoma-based organization supporting LGBTQ+ youth, everyone celebrating Gay Wine Weekend will know that a portion of proceeds will be donated to the local charity Face to Face that provides resources and services to people living with HIV/AIDS in Sonoma County.”


Gay Wine Weekend features à la carte events, a VIP Party Pass Package and a Magnum VIP Pass for those seeking a luxury wine adventure all weekend long. Individual event tickets start at $45, while weekend packages can run as high as $1,050 per person. Tickets, packages and hotel rooms are already selling out fast!
