Wine Road’s Barrel Tasting Weekends

Join us as we celebrate our 42nd Annual Barrel Tasting wine event! This is your chance to sample wines from the barrel, talk to winemakers and explore the beautiful Alexander, Dry Creek and Russian River Valleys.

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.

SOMM 3 Premiere and Napa Valley Wine Pouring

Fred Dame, Steven Spurrier and Jancis Robinson meet in Paris to drink the rarest bottles of their careers, while seven of the best blind tasters in the world gather in NYC to settle an age-old argument – can the world’s finest Pinot Noirs stand up to the great Burgundies of France? The final selections stun the table. Master Sommelier Dustin Wilson brings the winning wines to Jancis, Steven and Fred in Paris. Like the 1976 Judgment of Paris, could the results have the same revolutionary effect and be the next ‘vinous shot’ heard round the world?
