Alexander Valley vs. Russian River Valley Wineries Toys for Tots Drive Gondola Weigh-In Event

The grand finale to a North Bay Toys for Tots donation drive “wine-country style”—a head-to-head competition between wineries of the Alexander Valley and Russian River Valley, battling to see which wine region can fill a five-ton grape gondola with the most toys and coats for local children in need.

Hosted by Jordan Vineyard & Winery of Alexander Valley and J Vineyards & Winery of Russian River Valley, this three-week Toys for Tots drive culminates with a live weigh-in event this Friday, where community members will watch each team’s behemoth, vintage grape gondola—painted like Santa’s sleighs and overflowing with toys—pull up to the Jordan Winery scale house for the big weigh-in.

The wine region with the most donations by weight wins bragging rights and the reward of giving back this holiday season. J sparkling wine and sweets from the Jordan chef will be served.

Other participating wineries include:Francis Ford Coppola Winery, Ferrari-Carano, Soda Rock Winery, deLorimier Winery, Silver Oak Cellars, Stryker Sonoma, Robert Young Estate Winery, Trione Winery, Lancaster Estate, Chalk Hill Estate Vineyards & Winery, Dutton Goldfield, Rodney Strong Vineyards, Hartford Court, Moshin Vineyards, Limerick Lane Cellars, Twomey Cellars, Foppiano Vineyards, DeLoach Vineyards and Papapietro Perry.
