Here’s an event for serious wine buyers this weekend, March 7-9, along the Russian River in beautiful Sonoma County. Ex;ore the beautiful Alexander, Dry Creek and Russian River Valleys, where it’s quiet and bucolic compared to nearby downtown Sonoma and Napa.
You can step into the cellar at over 100 wineries to sample many limited wines directly from the barrel and purchase “futures” — often at a discount, then come back to the winery when the wine is bottled, typically 12-18 months from now.
Details can be found at www.wineroad.com or call 1-800-723.6336. No ticket is required. Just pay $20/person at the first winery you visit. Adults only. Sorry, no children or pets allowed.
