Barrel Tasting Sonoma County

Yes, the 32nd annual Wine Road Barrel Tasting is happening this weekend, March 6-7, and March 13-14 from 11-4.

Above is the link to the list of the over 100 Sonoma wineries that are participating. It’s quite an event!

Barrel Tasting is not a food 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. We often have wine enthusiasts come from out of town just for this unique and special event. It’s also a great way to meet the vintners and learn more about the wine.

The goal of Barrel Tasting is to introduce people to wines still in the barrel, help guests learn about wine and better understand what they’re tasting and to offer futures for sale.
