Artisan food, wine tasting at Artisano
Artisano, a grand tasting of local artisan food and wine, will take place from noon to 4 p.m. Saturday at the Vintners' Inn in Santa Rosa.
Participating in the tasting will be limited-production wineries such as Garden Creek and Prevail, craft brewers such as Bear Republic and Russian River Brewing Co., and seasonal restaurants such as Peter Lowell's in Sebastopol, Diavola in Geyserville and the Dry Creek Kitchen in Healdsburg.
Specialty food purveyors will serve cheese, bread and preserves alongside art displays and live music. Hands-on workshops on butchering, fermenting and cheese-making will be presented by participating chefs.
Tickets are $75 in advance, or $90 at the door.
The event culminates in a family-style harvest dinner at 5 p.m. Nov. 17 at John Ash &amp; Co. Tickets are $75, but you can purchase a package to both events for $140. Proceeds benefit the Ceres Community Project of Sebastopol.
