The Sonoma Home Winemakers, formerly known as the Valley of the Moon Dilettante Enological Society (VOMDES), are a group of home winemakers whose charter is to promote the fine art of making great wine and share information amongst its members.

We grow our grapes in our private vineyards, acquire grapes from local sources, or just help out fellow members with their winemaking. Our varietals range from Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Zinfandel, to the distinctive Tanat, Sangiovese, Cabernet Franc, Grenache, and Mourvedre.

We meet once a month to share ideas and information, evaluate each others wines, and host a speaker from the wine community. If you would like to join us, just come to the next meeting – dues are only $36 a year. And if you’re a member of the wine community with knowledge to share with our group, please let us know.

  • Co- President – John Randazzo
