Gualala Arts and Soroptimist International of Mendocino-Sonoma Coast invite you to the 28th annual Architectural Tour, Wine Tasting & Auction to be held on May 11-12, 2012, Mother's Day weekend.

Wine Tasting With the spectacular ocean-front location of The Sea Ranch in northern Sonoma County as a back-drop, the iconic North Coast style — defined by architects Moore, Esherick, Bowman, Lyndon, and Turnbull among others — has made the concept of "living lightly on the land" a reality!

The weekend will kick off Friday night with a champagne preview of the silent & live auction items at the Gualala Arts Center from 4:00 - 6:00 p.m. You will be able to purchase tickets to the tour, raffle tickets and browse at leisure and without the crowds the wide selection of wine, gift baskets and weekend getaways available in the silent & live auction.

Following the 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. self-guided tour, your Architectural Tour ticket is entrance to the Wine Tasting at the Gualala Arts Center from 3:00 to 6:00 p.m., where you can enjoy a wide variety of outstanding wines and fill your wine cellars with an impressive array of award-winning wines from 30 northern California wineries at our live and silent auctions.

Wine Tasting The elegance of the Gualala Arts Center has been the location for our wine tasting since its completion. Last year Soroptimist International Mendocino-Sonoma Coast and the Gualala Arts Center partnered to bring the wine tasting to a whole new level.

This year's event features 13 wineries pouring their own varietals while the fine wines of over 30 wineries will be offered at Auction. Live music and an Artisan Food Market will start at 2:00 p.m. at the Arts Center and remain until 6:00 p.m.

Ticket donations support our Community projects and may be purchased for $55 in advance from Brown Paper Tickets or by check at the Gualala Country Inn two weeks prior to the Tour, 707-884-4343.

On the day of the tour, ticket price will be $60 available in front of the Stewarts Point Store and at the Gualala Arts Center. This year we are also offering a wine tasting and auction only ticket (no Architectural Tour) for $20 available at Gualala Arts Center and the Dolphin Gallery. For more information: visit or
