To get an idea of what to expect at this event, we’ve turned our own spotlight on a few examples.

  • En Garde Winery invites guests to “Guess the Barrel.” Samples will be poured from American, French, and Hungarian oak barrels. Guests who amazingly choose the correct barrel will be entered in a raffle where the prize is a case of wine.
  • At Enkidu Wines, along with tastings paired with bites created by Doce Lunas Restaurant, Winemaker/Owner Phil Staehle will personally offer barrel tastings to guests.
  • For guests seeking port, Eric Ross Winery will be pouring 2012 Portuguese Port. Along with pouring their own wines, Moondance Cellars hosts samplings of six ports and after-dinner wines from Sonoma Valley Portworks.
  • A visit to VJB Vineyards & Cellars promises to transport guests to Italy. Their Italian varietal wines will be paired with gourmet pizza fresh out of their wood oven.
