We pop our cork for every guy we see.
Unlike Shirley Bassey.
But it’s only because we enjoy sharing wine with others. And if they’re gay, even better. So imagine our excitement when we learned that Out in the Vineyard has expanded its wildly popular Gay Wine Weekend into a full Gay Wine Week, July 16 to 22.
With more events and parties than ever before, we highly recommend getting a VIP Party Pass for $425, which gets you access to the biggest bashes of the week. That includes Thursday Comedy Night, an Opening Wine & Business Expo, the LGBT Business Expo & Wine Tasting, a Twilight T-Dance (& VIP reception), Friday and Saturday night afterparties, the Drag Queen Recovery Brunch & Auction, and a Sunday Pool Soirée.
Tickets to most of these events can be purchased individually, but it’s nice not to have to think about anything and getting a big package. (And who doesn’t love that?)
Book a stay at the host hotel, The Lodge at Sonoma Renaissance Resort & Spa, with rates from $369 per night or check out one of the many other fantastic spots in the region. Glamping on safari, perhaps?
Best of all, during this time you can snag seats on one non-stop flight a day from DFW to Santa Rosa on American Airlines. We took these same flights last fall and it was so much easier than flying into San Francisco and renting a car or finding other transportation.
We love, love, love Sonoma County and we love, love, love hanging out with other LGBTQ people.
So we consider this a win-win with lots of wine-wine.
