Sonoma In Chicago Restaurant Week
During the Sonoma in Chicago week, Sept. 8-14, these top Chicago restaurants will feature Sonoma Wines:
For every bottle of Sonoma wine that the restaurant sells, the Sonoma County Winegrape Commission and Sonoma County Vintners will donate $3 to Common Threads, a nonprofit educational organization dedicated to helping children discover the world through food.
“It is only fitting that we celebrate this year’s harvest in Chicago which has become a world class restaurant city that appreciates the dedication and hard work that goes into producing premium wines and indigenous products,” says Larry Levine, vice president of marketing and communications for the Sonoma County Winegrape Commission which represents 1,800 growers that supply winegrapes to more that 350 wineries.
“Our goal is to show the county’s amazing diversity from start to finish. We will have winegrapes from varieties and regions within the county—both celebrated areas such as the Russian River and Dry Creek Valleys, and up-and-coming regions such as Rockpile and Knights Valley. We will also showcase a bounty of wonderful foods from Sonoma County—from seafood caught in the Pacific Ocean to cheeses and produce from specialty farms throughout the county.”
