Raven, other exclusive, winery-only tastings, and opportunities to meet and mingle with the Ravenswood family of growers and founding winemaker Joel Peterson.

  • Opportunities to meet and mingle with the family of Ravenswood growers and the “Godfather of Zin” himself, Joel Peterson.
  • Specialty foods including:
    • an oyster bar
    • artisan sausages and caramelized onions off the grill
    • gourmet pizzas straight out of the pizza oven
