Give Dad a One of a Kind Sonoma Valley Experience

Sonoma, Calif. (June 8, 2020) – Father’s Day is coming up this month and while many people might not be able to spend the day with their dads, they can still bring some of the best of the Sonoma Valley to them at home.

Family owned Hanson of Sonoma Distillery is offering DIY cocktail kits that combine their organic spirits with the right ingredients to make the best mixed drink to toast fatherhood. The kits all come with a bottle of Hanson vodka or whiskey and a combination of bitters, mixers, garnishes and recipes. The classic Old Fashioned or Moscow Mule are just some of the options. If you want to skip the mixology, Hansen also offers pre-mixed cocktails as well. For more info on all their products, visit Prohibition Spirits has concocted a fantastic Father’s Day Spirited Package: The Wine Country Explorer. The gift box includes Chauvet VSOP Peat Smoked Brandy, an ice cube tray, ice bag and mallet, gun metal cocktail picks, aromatic bitters, a tumbler, Old Fashioned scented hand sanitizer and a 20-in-1 survival tool. You can pick your gift up at the distillery or order online.

If dad deserves a feast fit for a king, join Three Sticks Wines for a live cook-a-long and wine pairing class with the Truffle Shuffle team. The team is preparing meal kits for two featuring ribeye steaks, garnished with truffles, and caviar-topped baked potatoes. Just place your order and the winery will take care of the shopping. The meal is best paired with Three Sticks’ 2018 Durell Vineyard Pinot Blanc and the 2018 Russian River Valley Pinot Noir, which can be purchased online.
