Sonoma County, the birthplace of California wine, hosts the Sonoma Wine Country Weekend from Aug. 31 to Sept. 2, an event now in its fifth year. The weekend's co-producer, Maureen Cottingham, said the three-day event is "a world-class celebration of the vineyards, wines, cuisine, culture and characters that have made Sonoma County the ultimate wine country destination."

The 2012 Sonoma Wine Country Weekend features Taste of Sonoma at MacMurray Ranch; the 20th annual Sonoma Valley Harvest Wine Auction held at a new venue, Chateau St. Jean; the new Sonoma Starlight Supper Club at Francis Ford Coppola Winery; and various small, exclusive winery lunch and dinner parties at locations throughout Sonoma's wine country.

Proceeds from the weekend support Sonoma County non-profit organizations; to date, more than $10 million has been donated directly to Sonoma non-profits by the local wine community.

Ticket prices range from $85 to $500 per person. Presenting sponsor, Visa Signature, is offering its cardholders even perks and savings. For reservations and information visit www.sonomawinecountryweekend.com
