This year's Wine Road Barrel Tasting Weekend will be the 2nd weekend of March (Friday, Saturday, and Sunday). ~~~~
You will be able to sign up here for any one or all three days. I will be hosting all three days, just like last year, which as those who attended will tell you, Was A Blast! For those who are not familiar w/ barrel tasting, this is a chance to sample wines that will be released in a year or so, and if you're interested in purchasing futures (the wines you sample) you can do so at a greatly reduced price. The wine is shipped to you after it's bottled (typically in 12-18 months). While there, we will also be tasting from the current wine release menus - so lots of vino to taste! PLEASE make a comment w/ your RSVP saying which day(s) you'll attend - thx!
The three day ticket is $30 if purchased online before January 31st (which is a steal for this event). There are no 1 day tickets, so the ticket you buy will get you in for any or all of the three days.
Even though the official Wine Road site says there is no food at the event, this is not accurate. Last year there was lots of food everywhere. Anything from exotic cheeses and crackers/breads, to tri-tip sandwiches - so you will be well fed. Not bad for just $30!
REMEMBER: To get this price you must buy your ticket(s) before January 31st, as the price goes to $40 on Feb 1st. Tasting hours are 11:00 - 4:00pm ea day.

PLEASE NOTE: WE WILL LEAVE PROMPTLY AT
10:45 on Friday & Saturday.
We'll leave Sunday at 10:30 - so plan on arriving early.
Please note the earlier start time on Sunday!
There is a $5 Fun Fee (per day) for this event.
As for our grp, you can sign up here for a single day, all 3 days, or any combination thereof. PLEASE make a comment w/ your RSVP saying which day(s) you'll attend - thx!
I will map out the wineries by region and we'll hit 6-8 different wineries per day. Right now I'm tentatively planning Friday in Alexander Valley, Saturday in The Russian River Region, and Sunday in Dry Creek Valley.
For now, sign up and put a comment w/ your RSVP indicating which day(s) you will attend. As those who attended last year will understand - I'm REALLY looking forward to this one! This a great way to come see the wine country, and taste some really fine wines
