Sonoma will be ground zero for aficionados of California's artisan cheese producers. The third annual Artisan Cheese Festival, held at the Sheraton Sonoma County – Petaluma, will run from Friday, March 20, through Monday, March 23.  

The festivities begin with a Meet the Artisans welcome reception and tasting, hosted by the California Artisan Cheese Guild, on Friday night. That night you can dine at local restaurants featuring special cheese dishes on their menus.
Saturday is devoted to seminars led by cheesemakers and experts such as restaurant consultant Clark Wolf, Sue Conley and Peggy Smith of Cowgirl Creamery, Jill Giacomini Basch and Lynn Giacomini Stray of Point Reyes Farmstead Cheese Company, Juliana Uruburu of Oakland's Market Hall Pasta Shop, the San Francisco Chronicle's Janet Fletcher, and Jacquelyn Buchanan of Laurel Chenel Goat Cheese.
