The preeminent equestrian social event known as "Dressage In The Wine Country" returns to Santa Rosa, at the Sonoma County Fairgrounds, on Sept. 7.

Now in its 31st year, the event lovingly known as "DWC" has become an eagerly anticipated part of the local social landscape and we'd like to invite you to be a part of this wonderful day.

Set amidst the rolling hills of beautiful Sonoma County, DWC seamlessly blends the sheer athleticism of the horse with exquisite local wines, beers and artisan crafts, creating an undeniably unique experience for sponsors, vendors and attendees alike.

Well-attended by over 3000 visitors and a number of local celebrities and dignitaries, DWC offers outstanding equine performances, an artisan/vendor trade show and pourings by many of Sonoma County's leading wineries and breweries, distilling the essence of Sonoma County and making it the "must attend" event of the summer.

Dressage in the Wine Country is a charitable event hosted by the Sonoma Chapter of the California Dressage Society, a 501c volunteer organization. Our mission is to make a difference in the community by donating a significant percentage of the proceeds to local charities; raising awareness of the Sonoma Chapter of the California Dressage Society; and further educating and showcasing the incredible talents of our local horses and riders.

It's a fun-filled event for anyone who loves horses, wine, artisan beers, arts and gurmet foods!
