Wine Country Passport Weekend - A one-fee entrance to four of Treasury Wine Estates wineries in Sonoma and Napa: Beringer, Chateau St Jean, Etude, and St Clement.
Other things to keep in mind if you are visiting over this holiday weekend:
-- Lots of other folks have the same idea. Hotels will book up, restaurants will be impossible to get into for a 7 pm dinner, and the tasting rooms will be packed on Saturday and Sunday afternoon. My advice? Get into Priceline now to find a room, make dinner reservations before you show up, and do your wine tasting before 2 pm if you don't like crowds. Then spend the rest of the afternoon at one of the winery BBQs.
-- In 2011 Sonoma County had 48 DUI arrests for the weekend. If you don't have a designated driver then that person should at least limit their tastings at each winery--maybe share a tasting or only sample one or two wines per stop.
-- Weather is expected to be sunny with temps in the upper 70s, but bring layers, we have lots of micro-climates and the evenings cool off!
Hope your weekend includes something like this ...
