LIBRARY TASTING

March 6-7, 2021

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.

Listen to our most recent podcast – all about our spring events. WineRoadPodcast.com

 

 

Thank you to our sponsor:

 

This is your chance to explore library wines at a limited number of 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.

Please note – MANY OF THESE WINE ARE SO LIMITED, THEY ARE FOR PURCHASE ONLY,  NOT TASTING.

Each winery you plan to visit will require a reservation in advance and they will each charge their particular tasting fee.

Due to current Covid restrictions, wineries are ONLY able to offer tastings outdoors, therefore many are NOT able to participate.

Some wineries are offering a Library Wine for sale, but not for tasting. You are welcome to order in advance, then do a curbside pick-up, or have the wines shipped.

 

Cellars Are Closed / Libraries Are Open

March 6-7, 2021

For over 40 years this has been Wine Road's Barrel Tasting Weekend.

Covid restrictions made that impossible, due to the reservation requirements, outdoor tasting, and the need to limit crowds.

So 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.

FAQ's

Can I just pop in at a winery without a reservation?

Due to the current Covid restrictions in place, every winery must require reservations to limit the number of guests per day.

Do Designated Drivers have to be 21 years of age?

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.
