The 2013 Sonoma County Harvest Fair is honoring the Sangiacomo family with its Lifetime Contribution to the Sonoma County Wine Industry Award.
Since 1969, Sangiacomo Family Vineyards has consistently produced some of the top growing fruit in the region, from vineyards spanning the Carneros, Sonoma Valley and Sonoma Coast.
The first winery to bottle a vineyard-designated Sangiacomo wine was Gundlach Bundschu of Sonoma, followed by Joseph Phelps Vineyards in Napa Valley. Now, there are 76 producers who purchase grapes from the family.
Initiated in 2011, the award recognizes a family or company within the wine industry that has made outstanding contributions to the industry and Sonoma County.
The 2013 Sonoma County Harvest Fair will be held Oct. 4 to 6 at the Sonoma County Fairgrounds. www.harvestfair.org.
