Experience the finest wines of Sonoma County before anyone else at this annual tasting event. Featuring over 100 of the best wineries in and around Healdsburg, the 39th Annual Barrel Tasting is your chance to preview exclusive vintages straight from the barrel. Wineries from across the Alexander, Dry Creek and Russian River Valleys will throw open their doors on the weekend of March 11 to 13 to offer samples of their newest wines to ticket holders.
After choosing your favorite ones, you can pre-purchase the "futures" on the barrel samples. You can enjoy excellent discounts on fine wines, then come back to the winery to pick up your order in 12-18 months. Barrel tasting is an exciting way to learn more about wine and grow your collection.
Just a quick ride from our Tuscan-style villa, you can visit several wineries including Simi Winery, Manzanita Creek Winery, and West Wines. Once you check-in at your designated winery on your ticket, you can visit as many wineries as you like, in any order you wish. You can visit the vineyards at your own pace, so you can create your own itinerary for the day.
