CLINE CELLARS: EASTER SUNRISE MASS
Cline Cellars, Adobe Mission Area, 24737 Arnold Drive, Sonoma
6:15 am - 8:30 am
The annual Easter Sunrise Service at Cline Cellars will take place on Sunday, April 5, beginning at 6:15 a.m. in the Adobe Mission area. The service will be conducted by Father Kelly of St. Francis Church. After the service, attendees are invited to enjoy coffee and pastries. There is no charge for the event.
Fred and Nancy Cline, owners of Cline Cellars and the neighboring Jacuzzi Family Vineyards, have hosted the sunrise service for over 20 years. It has become an extremely popular tradition, attracting standing-room only crowds, some of whom drive an hour or more to attend the pre-sunrise ceremony.
The Cline Cellars property was the original site of Mission Sonoma, the final California Mission. Consequently, the property was officially sanctified by the Catholic Church and church-sanctioned ceremonies such as weddings and religious observances can be held on the historic property.
