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. It’s an opportunity to eat, drink, and be merry in beautiful wine country, all while saving the lives of schoolchildren half a world away!

People who join the V2V Wine Safari get complimentary tastings at wineries across Sonoma County from November 10-12, discounts at local restaurants, a keepsake wine glass, entry into raffles, and more! 100% of all ticket sales go directly to water projects at schools in East Africa, and participating wineries also donate a portion of the sales of every bottle sold over the weekend.

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.

FAQs

How do I check in?

Bring your printed ticket to the first winery you visit. They will check you in and take your ticket. They will give you a ‘Safari Pass’ that you will take to the rest of the wineries you choose to visit, a restaurant discount card, and a wine glass.

When and where can I go wine tasting?

Once you purchase your ticket, you can visit any participating winery any time throughout the weekend for a complimentary tasting. Please visit each winery only once. Winery hours and availability will vary. Each winery has its own tasting guidelines, and some may be by appointment only, though this is not common. Always contact the winery ahead of time for parties of 6 or more.

How does the raffle work?

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! We will contact the winners at the end of the event and ship your prize(s) free of charge.

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

Yes, you must be 21 or older to attend the V2V Wine Safari and all accompanying events.

What are my options for transportation?
