artisano, a celebration of the sonoma county slow food movement.

November 14, 2009
I woke up this morning at 6AM hungry to start my day!  As I get older I am finding it harder and harder to sleep in on a Saturday, but today another thing has me excited and HUNGRY! Today is the Artisano Event in Geyserville.

A celebration of small production, locally handcrafted wine, food and art and the people who produce it.

Sonoma County is known for its amazing pinot noirs and zinfandels (Dry Creek Valley wineries such as Papapietro Perry & Bella Vineyards come to mind), as well as our craft beers and cheeses (the Bear Republic & Bellwether Farms come to mind), but we (well, the general we, not myself per se) are also county of farmers, leading the way in the change in the way consumers look at local and handcrafted food/beverages.

Today’s event is the first Northern Sonoma County event to truly promote this new way of thinking.  It will feature wines rarely available to the general public, including some favorites such as MacPhail Winery and VERGE Wine Cellars and small plates featuring local ingredients and meats from amazing caters and restaurants such as Bovolo and The Epicurean Connection. Also  Steve Pile, a local Healdsburg musical legend will also be playing and I always look forward to hearing him sing.  On top of everything showcasing Sonoma County producers, there will also be auctions to raise some money for the Slow Food Sonoma County, North’s School Garden Project, hosted by no-other than Ziggy the Wine Gal.

Okay, I am done writing…. Now it is time to EAT!  I look forward to learning more about this movement and what “slow food” really means from the people who live it!
