Sonoma County's Wine Road Barrel Tasting

Or reason number 173 Sonoma County rules!

The first two weekends of March northern Sonoma County (Russian River, Dry Creek, Alexander Valleys) host a barrel tasting event. It's a chance to try wines before they are  bottled, maybe buy futures and to visit wineries you've never heard of before.

The first weekend this year the weather cooperated in a big way with temps in the 70s and lots of sunshine. And lots of people having a great time. I saw a lot of people from out-of-state that timed their trip for this weekend event.
