Here's some information from the event's website:
Buff up your board and slather on sunscreen for an "Endless Sonoma" extravaganza filled with wine, food, fun and frivolity! All the sickest Betties and Beach Boys are dropping in to the 18th Annual Sonoma Valley Harvest Wine Auction, presented by Trilogy Glass & Packaging, for a day of celebrating sips, surf and Sonoma. Catch the wine wave and get your tickets today!
Surf's up at Sonoma’s Cline Cellars Sunday, September 5, where the festivities kick off at 11 a.m. Paddle out to the impact zone (check in) to enjoy a laid back preview of the 35 Live Lots and Silent Auction Lots, or hang out in the Long Board Lounge before the Live Auction kicks it old school at 1 p.m.
Your ticket not only gets you into the Wine Spectator Auction Tent, but also offers you exclusive face time with Sonoma’s own Slaters of the Sip – our acclaimed Winemakers and Growers. Each table is hosted by a Winemaker or Grower who promises to share their locals-only secrets with haoles and heavies alike. A team of Sonoma County’s most renowned chefs will prepare a multi-course meal that makes "eating it" a totally awesome thing, dude.
When you purchase your auction tickets, it's your chance to choose which superstar of the Sonoma surf with whom you'd like to feast. Select from this incredible lineup:
After churning and burning your way through a most awesome auction, cross step into the Cigar Aficionado Cigar Lounge to get stoked in true surfer style.
