Why Attend #SoCoBA?
We are delighted to be welcoming trade buyers back to Sonoma County! SoCoBA gives our Sonoma County wineries the opportunity to interact with members of the trade they might not normally have the time or resources to visit. We’re honored that trade buyers will travel across the U.S. and from other countries to attend SoCoBA and bid on wines from our talented vintners.
Michael Haney, Executive Director
Sonoma County Vintners
We have been a supporter of SoCoBA since the inaugural event in 2015, bidding on these unique, one-of-a-kind wines to separate our restaurant’s wine program from others. Our extensive list of SoCoBA selections are only available to guests while dining here at Polo Grill.
