Mothers’ Day is Sunday, May 8, and several wineries are hosting special events to honor the occasion.

Moms will also receive a champagne taste to start, a 30% discount on one case of wine, 40% off three cases of wine or more, and a 25% discount on all gift items.Valley of the Moon is located in Sonoma Valley at 777 Madrone Road, Glen Ellen; 707-939-4510.

The Kendall-Jackson Wine Center is encouraging you to make a weekend of it. Their Annual Heirloom Tomato Sale is on Saturday, May 7. Over 100 varieties of heirloom tomato plants will be available for purchase. KJ asks that you be environmentally correct and Bring Your Own Bag (BYOB) for your tomato plant purchase. (They’ll provide the wine.) The tomato plant sale coincides with KJ’s first Farm Stand of 2011, which features produce from the Wine Center gardens. The Farm Stand is a regular first-Saturday-of-the-month event through the spring and summer. The Kendall-Jackson Wine Center is located at 5007 Fulton Road, just north of Santa Rosa and about 10 miles south of Healdsburg.

There will be plenty of other winery events and offers over Mothers’ Day weekend. We’ll try to update this post as we receive details.
