Hours Vary By Winery – Reservations Required
Library wines are portions of vintages held back by wineries to be re-released years after their debut. They’re named as such because wineries refer to the section of their caves where they store their private stock—usually a few cases from each vintage as libraries.
Thank you to our sponsor:
This is your chance to explore library wines at your favorite wineries along the Wine Road.
This is not an event, there are no tickets or wristbands, no logo glasses…just a unique opportunity to meet winemakers and winery owners and taste their favorite wines, pulled from their library.
Click on the “Program” link to see which wineries will have library wines to offer this weekend and which wines they will be sharing. (This will be complete by Feb. 22nd)
Each winery you plan to visit will require a reservation in advance and they will each charge their particular tasing fee.
For over 40 years this has been Wine Road's Barrel Tasing Weekend.
Covid restrictions made that impossible, due to the reservation requirements, outdoor tasting and the need to limit crowds.
So as the saying goes these days, we decided to pivot, our cellars may be closed this weekend, but our libraries are open.
This is a great opportunity to taste wines that are rarely open in the tasting rooms. Wineries are offering a limited number of wines to try this weekend. Reservations are required and seated is limited throughout the weekend.
Check back here for links to winemakers talking about their library offerings, how to store wines safely and how YOU can begin to build your own library collection. We are working on a variety of fun, short videos to launch this weekend. Tune in.
Due to the current Covid restrictions in place, every winery must require reservations to limit the number of guests per day.
Age does not matter if someone in your party is not tasting, but be sure to let the winery know they will be with you. They need to know just how many people they need to seat for each reservation.
