North Bays Best 2018 Winners


Welcome to the BEST Of the North Bay issue of NorthBay biz magazine. Inside, we reveal the 2018 winners of our annual readers’ poll, and you’ll get a glimpse of why these companies were voted the BEST in the North Bay. This year, our readers’ response was great once again. There were more than 60,000 votes in the 37 categories. There were more than 1,000 companies and individuals who garnered votes, which underscores the depth and quality of the companies doing business in the North Bay. In many categories, the voting was close, and our congratulations go out to all the winners. This year’s Gold Medal winners are listed on page 86 and multiple-year winners (those that have won the BEST Of designation more than once) are listed on page 87.

The awards celebration will take place Thursday, May 17, at the Santa Rosa Golf & Country Club in Santa Rosa. The evening wouldn’t be possible without the support of all our fine sponsors: Ghilotti Construction, Laco Associates, Moss Adams, Northern California Carpenter’s Union, Redwood Credit Union, Trope Group, Crown Trophy, C.P.A. Valet and of course, the SRG&CC. Thanks to all, in advance, for their help in making it a night to remember.

Pouring award-winning wines that night will be an assortment of Wine Country’s finest, including Balletto Vineyards, Korbel Champagne Cellers, La Crema Winery, Longboard Vineyards, Paradise Ridge Winery, Rodney Strong Vineyards, Sbragia Family Vineyards, Seghesio Family Vineyards and St. Francis Winery & Vineyards. And not to be outdone by the wineries, Bear Republic Brewing Company will be serving their finest beer. The food complementing the award-winning wine and beer promises to be a feast in its presentation, quality and variety, thanks to the outstanding staff at SRG&CC.

Congratulations to all the winning companies, thanks to our staff and special thanks to all our NorthBay biz readers, who took the time to vote for the BEST Of the North Bay. We’re looking forward to another outstanding and memorable event.


A special thanks to our sponsors!
