Vineyards to Villages (V2V) was started by members of the Sonoma County wine industry in partnership with Global Partners for Development to bring clean water infrastructure to schools in East Africa.
The V2V Wine Safari provides ticketholders with complimentary tastings at wineries across Sonoma County from November 10-12, complete with keepsake wine glass, raffles, and more! When you purchase a safari ticket, you will be entered to win cases of wine and other great wine-related prizes. For every bottle of wine you purchase on safari, you’ll receive an extra raffle ticket! All ticket sales go directly to water projects at schools in East Africa, and participating wineries will donate a portion of the sales of every bottle sold over the weekend to V2V.
This year, V2V will also offer a limited number of tickets to additional events throughout the weekend – a winemaker dinner at Christopher Creek Winery, a winemaker lunch at Fritz Underground Winery, and chocolate pairings at Pedroncelli Winery. These tickets are sold separately.
Participating wineries are joining every day! When you get to your first winery, you will receive a 'Safari Pass' with a map of all participating wineries. So far, these wineries include: Christopher Creek Winery; Fritz Underground Winery; Pedroncelli Winery; Viszlay Vineyards; Merriam Vineyards; Portolupi Wine; and Sbragia Family Vineyards.
Thanks for your interest in V2V and see you on Safari!
Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?

Are there ID or minimum age requirements to enter the events?

What are my transportation/parking options for getting to and from the events?
