When buying at the door, each person in the party must be present.
The winery staff will need to check each person’s ID to confirm they are at least 21 years old,
then attach your event wristband.Wristbands and glasses are not
handed out to one person buying for the group. 

  • Tickets are good for one weekend only.
  • Tickets are good for all three days of the weekend (Fri, Sat, Sun) at any winery that indicates they are Barrel Tasting on Friday.  Wineries with an (*) next to their name on the list below.

To taste at any of the participating wineries these weekends,  you will need to purchase the Barrel Tasting ticket. You can purchase your entry on the Friday of each weekend at those wineries listed below with an (*) asterisk. You would then enjoy three full days of Barrel Tasting ( be sure to keep your wristband on).    We gladly replace broken glasses, but lost or misplaced glasses are $5.00 to replace.  

Members of the Wine Road would like to welcome you to our 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 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.

Please do not bring BUSES to this event.
Our wineries cannot handle a group of 20-40+ people arriving at the same time.
To be responsible hosts, to provide an experience worth remembering, and to adequately describe the variety of wines being poured, smaller groups of people are ideal.

Winery staff cannot serve anyone that appears intoxicated.
Generally your entire group will be turned away, if one person appears to have over consumed.
We ask everyone’s cooperation in keeping the event fun for everyone – the winery staff and all attendees.

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.
