Tasting Pavilion


Enjoy a unique "Grand Tasting" experience Friday, Saturday and Sunday!

Welcome to the Sonoma County Harvest Fair's 39th Annual Celebration of world-class wines, award winning beer and culinary wealth. 

The epicenter of the Harvest Fair is the Tasting Pavilion, featuring award-winning varietals from this year’s Professional Wine Competition. With over 150 Sonoma County wineries participating, even the most experienced connoisseur is sure to find a new favorite. Similar to the Grand Tasting format from past years, the new all-inclusive tasting ticket offers guests a chance to savor innovative cuisine from this year’s Professional Food Competition, paired with some of the area’s best wines. Expanded categories in the culinary competition have enticed Sonoma County’s most famed restaurants to participate this year.

Medal-winning wine and food, craft beer and cider producers will pour alongside wineries and food purveyors. Sonoma County has developed into a hot spot for artisan breweries and their hand crafted ales are earning their own spotlight. This highly anticipated addition to the already exclusive tasting experience, will offer guests a complete feast for the senses. The all-inclusive tastings will take place Friday evening, Saturday afternoon and Sunday afternoon, ensuring that all guests can experience this full Sonoma County food and beverage exploration.
