Northern California Wine Country has a variety of events offered throughout the year. Some events focus on food and wine. Others take it further and provide wine, food, music, and art. Then, there are the events that only focus on the star of any wine country – the wine. The 34th Annual Barrel Tasting presented by Wine Road Northern Sonoma County does just that – the center of attention is on the wine from Alexander, Dry Creek, and Russian River Valleys.
Guests will have the opportunity to meet winemakers and to choose from over 100 wineries to visit. Samples of these impeccable wines are served straight from the wine barrel. Some wineries will be sharing wines that have not yet been bottled. Fans of wines not yet bottled are invited to purchase the wine in advance to guarantee that all of their favorite wines will be available.
This year’s 2012 event is offered during two weekends – March 2nd to March 4th, and March 9th to March 11th. Some important things to remember; not all wineries will be participating both weekends, no one under the age of 21 is permitted, and some wineries are not able to accommodate groups of 8 or more. Purchase your tickets by February 27th and save more money for wine purchases.
A few of the wineries only participating on the first weekend are A. Rafanelli Winery, Quivira Vineyards & Winery, Hawkes Wine, Moshin Vineyards, Paradise Ridge Winery, and Stryker Sonoma Winery. Some of the wineries participating both weekends include Alexander Valley Vineyards, Armida Winery, Everett Ridge Winery, Hop Kiln Winery, Kendall-Jackson Wine Estates, and Sbragia Family Vineyards.
