HONORE COMFORT: Exec Director of Sonoma Country Vintners

Sonoma County Vintners Executive Director since 2006. I have collaborated with multiple local
Organizations on complex projects. Working with the Winegrape Commission, I created the Presidents’
Council, a body of community and industry leaders that meets regularly to address issues and
Opportunities that support the wine industry. Sonoma County Vintners and Sonoma Valley Vintners and Growers Alliance are co-producers of The Taste of Sonoma, which is one of two flagship events during Sonoma Wine Country Weekend – the signature weekend for Sonoma County each September. We feel that Sonoma Wine Country Weekend and the Taste of Sonoma are successful events and offer great visibility for Sonoma County wines, food and tourism for several reasons: Feature the wine, food, and lifestyle that is uniquely Sonoma County; invite guests from across the U.S. To come and be a part of our wine and food community; provide opportunity to meet the people who grow the grapes, make the wine, and produce our local products and cuisine; create hands-on experiences For people learn about and engage – not just another wine tasting; designed to communicate the range of wines produced here, and how they are integral to our local wine and food culture. Wine and tourism are the major drivers of Sonoma County’s economy, so it is essential that they continue to grow and thrive. We have a unique culture here that is warm, inviting, and approachable. It is rooted in wine and our agricultural heritage, but it encompasses the entire wine country lifestyle. People want to come here and be a part of our community for a week or weekend, so the more we can do to reach out to visitors from around the world and offer a glimpse of what makes Sonoma County unique, the more we will continue to grow. The best way to grow both sectors is to continue to work together and approach tourism from the standpoint of making wine accessible, and approach winery hospitality with an eye towards always welcoming the visitor. Social media and electronic communication have greatly increased the ability to spread “word of mouth” and the wine industry has adopted social media faster than most other sectors.
