Good Spirits Fest

  • Cornerstone Sonoma (map)

Join us as we celebrate craft spirit distillers and unique local restaurants of Marin County and Wine Country. It’s your chance to try out the area's many spirit offerings—those making their debut as well as the trusty and true—in one evening, under one roof. Cocktails will be expertly paired with top-notch tastes from some of California's most acclaimed and up-and-coming chefs and food artisans.

If you like sips of excellent artisan spirits, the upcoming Good Spirits 2017 artisan distillers festival at Cornerstone is for you. Even if you don’t drink, there is lots to learn and lots of non-alcoholic drinks and food nibbles to enjoy.

Organized by Gibson Thomas, publisher of Edible Marin & Wine Country, this will be the first real spirits festival in the wine country. Lots of local distillers will be present and pouring, and many will also be serving food from such locals as the Girl and the Fig.

Co-sponsors with Edible include Cornerstone, Ramekins, and the Edible Communities, which include all the regions of the U.S. where Edible magazines tell local healthy food stories.

The Saturday, Sept. 9 event will include a great list of artisan distillers’ finest products including those of Prohibition Spirits/HelloCello, Hanson of Sonoma, Charbay, St. George, Griffo, Sonoma County Distilling, Napa Valley Distillery, Spirit Works Distillery, Ca’Momi, Ginny’s Gin, and more are signing up daily.
