On November 16th Viansa Sonoma will host a special wine dinner in collaboration with Golden State Salmon Association (GSSA) to honor Erich Pearson the Founder of Sparc Farm at Gordenker Ranch in Glen Ellen.
“We are thrilled to honor Erich this year and he rightfully joins other Sonoma water stewards,” states GSSA president John McManus. “Additional proceeds will help us continue to fight environmental roll-backs and ocean health while keeping salmon fishing families on the water and salmon on Californians plates.”
After dinner, those who attend will have the opportunity to bid on vacation getaways, quality outdoor gear and salmon fishing trips for 2020.
All proceeds go to GSSA’s work to restore California’s most important salmon runs. For Tickets: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/6th-annual-ggsa-sonoma-salmon-celebration-tickets-71921544275
ABOUT VIANSA SONOMA
Established in February 1990 with the goal of bringing the Northern Italian culture of food and wine to the Sonoma valley and share the rich family history of Vicki and Sam Sebastiani. Viansa winery is located on beautiful hillside in the picturesque Carneros region of Sonoma Valley featuring a 97-acre waterfowl preserve where migratory ducks and geese find sanctuary during on their annual trip between Canada and Mexico. An abbreviation of the names Vicki and Sam, Viansa’s tasting room was designed after the monastery that Samuele Sebastiani immigrated from outside of Lucca in Tuscany. The Sebastiani family has 4 generations of winemaking history in Sonoma Valley starting with Samuele in the early 1900’s, most recently with Chris and Jon Sebastiani returning to Viansa winery to continue their family’s mission of creating quality wines, a place for people to come together and a passion for innovation.
