Winesong! is a nationally recognized charity wine auction and tasting attended by more than 1,100 guests from 28 states, who come together to make this one of the most spectacular events on the North Coast. The popularity of this prestigious event guarantees a sellout crowd every year and creates a festive atmosphere in the beautiful Mendocino Coast Botanical Gardens. On Saturday, September 12, the wine tasting is scheduled from 11 am to 2 pm., and is held outdoors along the garden paths. Each year over 100 of California’s highly acclaimed wineries showcase their best vintages.
