Vote for your favorite gingerbread house

The 10th annual Sonoma Valley Winery Gingerbread Contest is underway, sponsored by the Sonoma Valley Vintners & Growers Alliance (SVVGA). The public gets a chance to vote on the most magnificent edible masterpiece. For 2015, wineries were asked to draw inspiration from SVVGAs heritage-driven moniker, In Sonoma Valley The Roots Run Deep.

Through Dec. 31, each winery will display their creations in their tasting rooms. Visitors can pick up a map of all participating wineries at any location, and are invited to vote for their favorites either via the onsite paper ballots or online on the Sonoma Valley Wine Facebook page. As an added bonus, each time voters cast a ballot, either in person or online, theyll be entered to win a case of hand-selected Sonoma Valley wines.

The 2015 contestants include Benziger Family Winery, B.R. Cohn Winery, Bryter Estates, Buena Vista Winery, Chateau St. Jean. Hamel Family Winery, Imagery Estate Winery, Larson Family Winery, Madrone Vineyard Estate, and Muscardini Cellars.
