The perfect place for a memorable holiday experience.

What unique gift items and wine tasting opportunities are you offering for the holidays?
At Bricoleur Vineyards, we’re known for our perfect pairings. We have anincredible team of winemakers, chefs and gardeners who craft memorable dishes from our sustainably farmed culinary garden to pair with our elegant wines — and our holiday gifts are an extension of the experience that guests have at the winery. This holiday season, you can send your friends and family a slice of Sonoma County: estate olive oil, estate-made pasta and sauce paired with our critically acclaimed red blend, La Rumeur, and so much more. Sometimes the best gifts are memorable evenings. We invite you to join us at our holiday concert: An Evening with Patrick Davis & His Midnight Choir on December 16.

What are you offering this season in gift items that’s sets you apart?
This year we have crafted a special gift that gives back. My daughter and business partner, Sarah, is our winery’s heart and soul. She’s our inspiring co-founder and COO, plus she’s an amazing wife and mother to our son-in-law, James, and our granddaughter, Isla Rose. Earlier this year we were stunned when Sarah was diagnosed with breast cancer. She has an unbelievable attitude and wants to help all cancer patients, so $5 from every purchase of Isla Rose Brut Rosé is being donated to the V Foundation for cancer research, and for every case of Isla Rose Brut Rosé that’s purchased, our family is making a matching $60 donation to the V Foundation.

What makes your business a leader, especially during the holidays?
Bricoleur Vineyards is the heart of the community in the Russian River Valley. Our Holiday Market on December 10th is supporting local small businesses and such a fun day.
