Not Just for Beer: Wine Road Members Offer New Trend
of WIne In Kegs
Healdsburg, CA (December XX, 2013) –  The Wine Road’s members continue to reflect their attention to industry trends and emerging winegrowing techniques, offering wine in kegs for purchase by restaurants and consumers alike. In addition to being an eco-friendly way of serving, the wine does not go through a bottling line which can mute aromas and flavors for a short period of time. Wine goes straight from the blending tank to keg and can be enjoyed immediately. Located in Northern Sonoma County with 190 vintners and 50 lodgings throughout the Alexander, Dry Creek, and Russian River valleys, the Wine Road boasts a number of these options for wine in kegs:
Inman Family Wines
Russian River Valley
Inman Family Wines makes their Pinot Noir and Pinot Gris available to local restaurants in kegs.  Inman Family Pinot Noir and Pinot Gris served from keg can currently be found at SHED in Healdsburg.
DeLoach Vineyards
Russian River Valley
DeLoach Vineyards offers wine in a miniature French oak barrel called Barrel-to-Barrel.
A rotating option of two red varietals, dispensed from the winery’s tasting room barrel, comes in a three-liter bag in a box.
Dry Creek Vineyard
Dry Creek Valley
Dry Creek Vineyard currently produces Sauvignon Blanc and Zinfandel in kegs for a limited number of markets including California, Illinois and Colorado.   
ACORN Winery
Russian River Valley
ACORN bottles wine in reusable five-gallon kegs for restaurants to use on their glass pours list. These wines can be found at Bluestem in San Francisco and Spoonbar in Healdsburg.
The Wine Road is a travel resource for those looking to visit the region, which is famous for its renowned wine producers and cuisine, scenic beauty, and wine country lifestyle. The association hosts three celebrated wine events throughout the year, “Winter WINEland” in January; “Barrel Tasting” in March; and “A Wine and Food Affair” in November. Made up of 190 vintners and 50 lodgings throughout the Alexander, Dry Creek, and Russian River valleys in Sonoma County, something is always going on along the Wine Road.
