Direct from NYC Gary has been a resident of Sonoma County for over 25 years now. It definitely has become “home.” Hospitality has always been at the forefront in Gary’s life, from being in the restaurant business to being the Owner and Co-Founder of Out In The Vineyard, an LGBTQ+ Tour and Event Company here in Sonoma. For Gary, it is about bringing the community together to share the amazing lifestyle of wine country. Out In The Vineyard produces one of the most nationally recognized LGBTQ events in the country with Gay Wine Weekend, a 3-day event celebrating food, wine, and community. Over the years Gary and the team have helped raise over $400,000 for Face to Face, Sonoma County HIV/AIDS Network. He also supports other LGBTQ non-profits in the county including Positive Images.
Gary is proud to be one of the many voices for our Queer community here in Sonoma County.
