37th Annual Barrel Tasting
Wine Road - Northern Sonoma County
100+ Wineries!

BARREL TASTING - TWO WEEKENDS.....
March 6- 8 & March 13-15, 2015
11:00 am - 4:00 pm each day

Tickets go on sale in January 23, 2015

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.

Attendees are encouraged to pack a picnic as most wineries will not have food for this event. 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.

When buying wristbands & tasting glasses at the door,
 each person in the party must be present.  
The winery staff will need to check each person's ID to confirm they are at least 21 years old, then attach your event wristband.   Wristbands and glasses are not handed out to one person buying for the group.
  • Tickets are good for one (1) weekend only.
  • Ticket sales are final and non-refundable.  Event takes place rain or shine. 
  • Tickets are not transferable to other Wine Road Events
  • Ticket admits only 1 person.
  • Tickets are good for all three (3) days of the weekend (Fri, Sat, Sun). You can taste at any winery that indicates they are Barrel Tasting on Friday.
  • Wineries with an (f) next to their name on the list below are participating on Friday.
To taste at any of the participating wineries these weekends, you will need to purchase the Barrel Tasting ticket.  You can purchase your entry on the Friday of each weekend at those wineries listed below with an (f). You would then enjoy three full days of Barrel Tasting ( be sure to keep your wristband on).  We gladly replace broken glasses, but you will be charged $5.00 for lost or misplaced glasses.  

Full size BUSES are not allowed at Wine Road events.
Our wineries cannot handle a group of 20-40+ people arriving at the same time. 
To be responsible hosts, to provide an experience worth remembering, and to adequately describe the variety of wines being poured, smaller groups of people are ideal.

Winery staff cannot serve anyone that appears intoxicated.  
If even one person appears to have over-consumed, generally your entire group will be turned away.
We ask everyone's cooperation in keeping the event fun for everyone - the winery staff and all attendees.
