You heard it here first. The Grapevine Trading Co. will hold its annual holiday sale from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. this Saturday and 10 a.m. to 3 p.m . Sunday at the warehouse at 738 Wilson St. in Santa Rosa’s Railroad Square.

    Bottled under the California Harvest label, the award-winning  food products include pasta and marinara sauce, tapenades and olives,  honey and spices, olive oils and vinegars, and lots more. (Go to to see the complete line, but  not all products will be on sale.)

     Make sure you pick up a few of the delicious fruit vinegars – Fig Lemon Balsamic is my favorite –  to give away as hostess gifts.  The Travel Spice Kit makes a great stocking stuffer for the peripatetic chef in your life. And you can usually pick up some  candles and other tabletop décor to help  decorate for the holidays.

    In the past, owner  Sandra VanVoorhis has also offered a  “make-your-own” gift basket station during  the warehouse sale,  supplying  baskets, packing and even a shrink-wrap service. These are great deals, so make sure you pick up some good foodstuffs for your own pantry.
