With the holiday season in full swing as you read this, we want to wish everyone a safe and sound time with family and friends and remember to be thankful for all we have here in beautiful Sonoma Valley. We get to wake up every day in a place that people from all over the world come to visit. Most of the music this weekend will be the sound of children opening presents, wine glasses clinking and remembrances of loved ones lost in the past year, but there are a few things going on before things slow down on Saturday.
