COMMUNITY!

Everyone came to drink, to eat a bit, to enjoy a perfect summer day in the gardens, which we did in style. But generosity was also on the menu as participating wineries once again contributed bottles to a raffle to benefit the essential services of Corazón Healdsburg. BD wine director Chappy Cottrell led the charge.

Yes, Healdsburg is changing, we got the memo, but some community roots still run strong and deep: the woman on the left (the indomitable Susan Preston of Preston Farm and Winery) knew the young man on the right (Sam Bilbro of Idlewild Wines) when he was only a bump in the tummy and a gleam in his mum’s eye. The gentleman in the middle is Barndiva’s Geoffrey Hales. One of the great things about our fêtes is the chance to see old friends, and make new ones. This is a community driven event.
