The 6th Annual Garagiste Festival: Northern Exposure is coming back to Sonoma on Saturday, April 27, 2024, giving attendees rare access to the region's best small, hard-to-find winemakers.

At this exclusive event, you will discover and taste amazing, cutting edge wines from over 40 high-quality, micro-production, commercial wineries from Napa, Sonoma, Mendocino, Santa Cruz, Lodi, and more.

Find out for yourself why we’ve been selling out our events for ten years and why we were named the #1 Wine Festival in the Country by USA Today! Meet the winemakers and hear directly from them about the ins and outs of their winemaking styles.

Over 90% of the Garagiste wineries participating in this event do not have regular tasting hours, so this is truly a singular chance to discover and meet the next great winemakers and get the opportunity to taste their amazing micro-production wines. Your appointment to try these wines is all in one room, right here! You won't be able to duplicate this tasting experience at any other wine event.

Meet the winemakers, taste their passion!
