COME TASTE WHAT THE “FUTURE” HOLDS AT WINE ROAD’S 32nd-ANNUAL
BARREL TASTING EVENT IN SONOMA COUNTY IN MARCH

 
WHAT:                      March 6, 2010 kicks off the 32nd-annual Barrel Tasting, Sonoma’s preeminent wine event, and whether you are a novice or connoisseur, wine lovers of all levels are welcome to meet with winemakers, sample wines from the barrel, and purchase “futures” at a substantial discount for two weekends only in March. Barrel Tasting gives visitors a rare chance to experience young, unfinished wines before they’re released to the general public. Patrons can purchase the wine at the event at a 25-30% discount, and receive their case lot 12-18 months later. Many of the wines sampled throughout the weekend are produced in such limited quantities that they are sold exclusively as “futures.”  
 
WHO:                        Over 100 wineries open their cellar doors as they celebrate this year’s Barrel Tasting. Members of the Wine Road are located in Dry Creek, Russian River, and Alexander Valleys in Northern Sonoma County, California. A complete list of participating wineries will be available online beginning January 20, 2010 at www.wineroad.com <http://www.wineroad.com/> .

                                   March 13 & 14, 2010*
11:00 a.m.-4:00 p.m.
*A select number of wineries will also be pouring on the Friday of each weekend (March 5 & 12, 2010)
