Sonoma's History: Laurel Glen

6:00pm to 8:00pm
A 16-acre estate set atop the tiny Sonoma Mountain Viticultural Area, Laurel Glen is a bucolic, sloping, hillside vineyard that was founded by Patrick Campbell in 1977 and that is planted entirely to Cabernet Sauvignon. These vineyards themselves are storied; they were originally planted with mixed red grape varieties by German immigrants in the late 1880s, only to be replanted to Cabernet in the late 1960s. Those plantings now make up part of the famed Laurel Glen vineyard. We'll be tasting two of Laurel Glen's historic Cabernets at this unforgettable tasting that you will not want to miss.
