The Francis Ford Coppola Winery will host the Sonoma Starlight Supper Club on Aug. 31st to kick off the fifth annual Sonoma Wine Country Weekend. For the well heeled, it all begins poolside at the winery, with food and wine, live music, and dancing to the Bay Area band Pride & Joy.

For those with disposable income, a Patron Ticket is $175 rather than the standard $95, and it includes a Sparkling Wine Reception, a sit-down meal prepared by Mark Stark, chef/owner of Stark Reality Restaurants, and access to a cigar bar and private lounge.

Tickets for all the weekend events are now on sale and they range from $85 to $500 per person. For more information visit www.SonomaWineCountryWeekend.
