Welcome to the Russian River!
The Russian River is a vacation destination surrounded by ancient redwoods in the heart of Sonoma Wine Country just a few miles from the spectacular Sonoma Coast. The Russian River offers fine restaurants, lodging, wineries, activities, boutique stores, farmers markets and joins small eclectic towns including Guerneville, Forestville, Monte Rio, Rio Nido, and Duncans Mills. The Russian River meets the Bohemian Highway a few miles from Occidental and Freestone and joins the Pacific Ocean at Jenner, just North of Bodega Bay.
37th Annual Barrel Tasting
It's all about the WINE
Russian River, California
March 6- 8 & March 13-15, 2015
11:00 am - 4:00 pm each day
Experience 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.
