Join us to celebrate Hopland Passport on Saturday, October 17th and Sunday, October 18th 2015, from 11:00am to 5:00pm each day.
With 14 participating wineries pouring their best wines, incredible food pairings at each stop, and two full days of tours, educational seminars, art, and live music, Hopland is the place to be for wine lovers everywhere.
Hopland, CA – Destination Hopland’s Fall Passport Event is expanded to 15 wineries this year and will offer a new twist: educational seminars for those wishing to deepen their knowledge of wine. The region is host to more than 100 years of traditional winemaking, with grapes considered among the best in the world. Multiple generations of vintners have created a unique range of regional wines and original blends that have stood the test of time, representing a hidden jewel in beautiful Mendocino County. “Roots of Wine” promises to take visitors on a journey of taste and time – from learning about viticulture techniques to actual blending workshops; organic farming demos to olive oil making; brandy distilling demos to pairings with fine foods, this Passport offers a feast of opportunities you won’t want to miss!
Winemaker Chris Nelson of Nelson Family Vineyards says, “Passport allows us winemakers to share our passion and joy for wine with the general public. We’ve crafted an experience that allows our visitors to immerse themselves in a sensory exploration that is all about the Sanel Valley and its rural homesteading roots.”
The Fall Passport event runs from 11:00 am to 5:00 pm, Saturday, October 17th, and Sunday, October 18th. Tickets entitle Passport goers to two full days of fun. Fifteen wineries will be pouring their best wines into your Passport glass, and pairing that wine with food that complements it perfectly—a treat for even the most discerning taste buds. Regular tours, art, and live music and dancing are part of many venues as well. Nine educational seminars run from Noon to 2 PMboth days.

Neighbors helping Neighbors is the theme of Mendocino County’s Valley Fire Fundraiser on Sunday, October 25 from 4:00-8:00 pm at the Redwood Empire Fairgrounds in Ukiah.
Sheriff Tom Allman pulled together a group of local leaders, businesses and service clubs to organize a community-wide dinner, auction & music event raise money to support the longterm rebuilding efforts of our Lake County neighbors.
Bands such as the Ford Brothers and the Funky Dozen plus one or more Latino groups will be playing. Spaghetti and taco dinners are on the menu. Local 4-H Club members will be selling desserts and local wineries and breweries are providing libations.
McFadden Farm has donated an assortment basket of wine and farm goods for auction, and tasting room manager (and local newspaper wine columnist) John Cesano has pulled a special assortment case from his collection for another auction item.
Tickets are $15 per person in advance, $20 at the door. Children six and under are free. Tickets are available at Mendo Mill Stores in Ukiah, Lakeport, Clear Lake, Willits, and Fort Bragg, and at Chavez Market on South State Street in Ukiah.
All proceeds from the benefit go directly to the Lake County Wildfire Relief Fund created by North Coast Opportunities with the support of Mendo Lake Credit Union and the Savings Bank of Mendocino County. All administration costs are being waived which means one hundred percent of donations go directly to benefit those who have been affected by the fire damage.
To volunteer or donate an item to the raffle and auction, contact firstname.lastname@example.org. Auction items may be dropped off at the Redwood Empire Fairgrounds office from 9-5 Monday through Friday. For more information call Heidi Dickerson at 467-3230. For more information click HERE.
