43rd Annual Barrel Tasting

Northern Sonoma Wine Country
each day 11am-4pm

Event details including participating wineries will be posted by January 2020
Tickets Go On Sale January 21, 2020
Members of the Wine Road would like to welcome you to our wineries and lodgings for an exciting weekend of wine tasting. This is your chance to sample wines from the barrel, talk to winemakers and explore the beautiful Alexander, Dry Creek and Russian River Valleys.
Barrel Tasting is not a food pairing or themed event. It’s all about the WINE…many wineries offer “futures” on their barrel samples. This is a chance to purchase wine now, often at a discount, then come back to the winery when the wine is bottled, typically 12-18 months from now. Many wines are so limited, buying futures is your only chance to purchase them.
The ticket price includes the opportunity to sample wine from the barrel and in most cases also trying a limited number of current release wines. This is not a food pairing event so not all wineries provide food during the event.
All Wine Road events are for adults only. No One under the age of 21 is allowed to attend Barrel Tasting – including no babies or children of any age.
