From its modest inaugural vintage of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot in 1978, to its addition of Sauvignon Blanc in 1982, Duckhorn Vineyards has crafted a tradition of quality and excellence that continues today.

    Although there are no tickets left I was told there will be a decoy event at the wine bar from 5-6 pm where for $.10 each you can sample about 5-7 wines, I'm not sure the amt of each wine though. And during this time they will assess if they can still add more people. I plan to be there around 5:30 or so and try the wines and who knows might just be able to attend the event.
