Two great Sonoma County bottle shops will be celebrating an anniversary over the next couple of weeks.
Rincon Valley Tap Room and Bottle Shop, formally Rincon Valley Wine and Beer, will be celebrating their one year anniversary on Sunday, July 27, from 2 to 7pm. They will have eight craft beers on tap and sausage paella made by Bros. BBQ and Paella. Geoff Hawkins will be playing live flamenco guitar music. Those of you in attendance will be entered into a raffle for an opportunity to win bottles of Cantillon Cuvee des Champions, Saint Gilloise Gueuze and Cantillon Fou’ Foune.
