Wine is focus of Sonoma Showcase

Next week is the 28th Annual Sonoma County Showcase, a four-day Sonoma County vintners event, ending with the two-day Taste of Sonoma July 14 and 15 at MacMurray Ranch in Healdsburg. Some 120 local wineries and 60 chefs are participating in the lavish event — more than simply a tasting — at the private estate.
