Barrel Tasting is Back (VIDEO)
Two Weekends of Wine Tasting
For over three decades Wine Oh’s from across the country have headed to Northern Sonoma County to taste wine like the makers. This wine event lets you bypass the tasting room and go behind the scenes to learn winemaking 101 from the pros who say:
“If you don’t like it in the barrel, you won’t like it in the bottle.”
In this video, Wine Oh TV’s Monique Soltani makes a Grape Escape to the Wine Road less traveled and takes us inside the wine tasting event too big for just one weekend!
35th Annual Barrel Tasting
March 1-3 and March 8-10, 2013
11:00 am – 4:00 pm each day

Members of the Wine Road would like to welcome you to their wineries and lodgings for an exciting weekend of wine tasting. This is your chance to sample wines from the barrel, talk to winemakers and explore the beautiful Alexander, Dry Creek and Russian River Valleys.
Barrel Tasting is not a food pairing 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.
Attendees are encouraged to pack a picnic as most wineries will not have food for this event. The ticket price includes the opportunity to sample wine from the barrel and in most cases also trying a limited number of current release wines.
