|Shone Farm to host holiday event Dec. 14 in Forestville
Santa Rosa Junior College’s (SRJC) Shone Farm, a nonprofit winery in the Russian River Valley, will host a free family friendly holiday event on Saturday, Dec. 14 from 2-5 p.m.
Families that enjoy wine and who have young children are encouraged to attend this annual holiday celebration at Shone Farm, located at 7450 Steve Olson Lane in Forestville.
SRJC invites community members to taste Shone Farm wine with cheese pairings, watch a holiday theme movie on a big screen, plus listen to holiday tunes by Michael Bublé. Attendees will be the first to taste Shone Farm’s unfiltered “2013 Shone Farm Reserve Extra Virgin Olio Nuevo,” filled with fresh aroma and taste. All of the award-winning wine and olive oil will be available for purchase at discounted prices for the holiday season.
A special children’s area will include activities such as a “Dear Santa” letter workshop, ornament making, and stringing a popcorn garland from freshly popped corn.
“Shone Farm is the community’s winery, so creating a welcoming space for families is essential as well as delightful,” explained Shone Farm Wines Director of Marketing and Wine Studies student Marieshka Barton.
