If you consider auctions a barometer of the economy, the Sonoma Valley Harvest Wine Auction showed signs of an economic upturn, raising $511,000 on Sunday, up from last year’s take of $330,000.
“We’re building each year,” said Honore Comfort, executive director of Sonoma County Vintners, one of the organizations behind the auction. “We knew going in with this economy it was going to be challenging.”
