Summer Garden Parties – Alexander Valley

July 2nd, August 6th, September 3rd and October 1st from 4-7 pm.

On the first Saturday of July, August, September and October, we’re hosting a series of garden parties here at our tasting room in Alexander Valley. What, you may well ask, is a garden party? Will I need gloves or a paper umbrella to attend? Mucho take it easy: a garden party is a party that happens to place in a garden. The parties will run from 4pm to 7pm and I’ll be splitting the cooking with my friend Liza Hinman, the chef and owner of The Spinster Sisters Restaurant. Menus will include Paella, Korean Barbecue, grilled chicken with spiced carrot salad, and street tacos.

RSVP – July 2nd, August 6th, September 3rd, October 1st.

No pets or guests under 21, please.


Eat. Drink. Experience Alexander Valley

 June 11-12, 2022

On Saturday, June 11th, we’ll be participating the annual Eat. Drink. Experience Alexander Valley Event. The event is a collaboration of more than a dozen wineries here in Alexander Valley and consists of two days of intimate food and wine experiences ranging from a pig roast to a vineyard hike lead by a guy with an epic mustache. Here at Hawkes, Jake will be a leading a discussion and demonstration of how to pair our Cabernet Sauvignon with vegetarian food. This isn’t just an event for plant-eaters – we love meat and cook with it all the time. But, we love vegetables and eggs and cheese and mushrooms, too. After we taste through a variety of wines and pairings, we’ll sit for a family-style lunch to enjoy a wide variety of vegetarian dishes paired with an equally wide variety of Hawkes wines. One and two day tickets available through the Alexander Valley Winegrowers AssociationNo pets or guests under 21, please.


Vineyard Dinner – Alexander Valley

 Saturday, September 24th.

If you’re looking for something a bit more up-market, I hope you’ll join us for dinner in the vineyard on Saturday, September 24th at our Pyramid Ranch. This isn’t a coursed and plated meal. We’re over that (at least for now). Instead of concentrating on formality and white linens, we’re going to focus on relaxing and having a good time. We’ll cook and serve a variety of shared dishes including grilled homemade Saucisse de Toulouse and lamb kofta, Hawkes farm fennel and beet salad with goat cheese, Methow Valley red wheat berries with Hawkes Farm herbs and extra virgin olive oil, and more than a dozen single vineyard wines from our current stable and the library. All that, plus spectacular views of Alexander Valley and beyond.

Tickets for the Pyramid Dinner In The Vineyard are $125 for general admission and $75 for club members and their guests. Space is limited so, if you plan to attend, please let us know as soon as possible.

Purchase your tickets here. No pets or guests under 21, please.


Pickup Party – Downtown Sonoma

On Sunday, May 29th, we’re hosting a wine club pickup party at our tasting room in downtown Sonoma.

The party is complementary and is for club members only.
