SynBioBeta Sonoma Wine Country Unconference

Deepen your SynBioBeta San Francisco experience and knowledge of Napa and Sonoma wines at our “Unconference” in one of California’s finest winegrowing regions. We will meet at UCSF Mission Bay on the morning of Thursday, October 5th, and travel by bus to Viansa Sonoma Winery where we will enjoy a catered lunch, followed by wine tasting tours interspersed with three 45-minute work sessions. If you’ve never been to an unconference before then the format is simple, we start with an empty schedule and you, the participants decide the sessions and talks on the fly. We’ll break out into a number of groups based on common interest in the topics proposed. It’s a great way to broaden your knowledge, delve into new areas and create new partnerships with other SynBioBeta attendees.

Known for its award-winning wines, iconic 270-degree hilltop views of the Sonoma Valley leading into Napa, and a long history of land stewardship, Viansa Sonoma Winery is the perfect place to complete your SynBioBeta experience. The unconference cost is $150 before September 15th or $200 after.  Space is limited.
