BARREL TASTING – TWO WEEKENDS…..
March 2-4 & March 9-11, 2018
11:00 am – 4:00 pm each day

Members of the Wine Road would like to welcome you to our wineries and lodgings for an exciting weekend of wine tasting. This is your chance to sample wines from the barrel, talk to winemakers and explore the beautiful Alexander, Dry Creek and Russian River Valleys.

Barrel Tasting is not a food pairing or themed event.  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.

Attendees are encouraged to pack a picnic as most wineries will not have food for this event. The ticket price includes the opportunity to sample wine from the barrel and in most cases also trying a limited number of current release wines.

Winemaker Breakfast and Q & A on Saturday March 3rd and Saturday March 10th. Tickets must be purchased for this added event during registration. This is an open forum for guests to meet and chat with winemakers in a casual breakfast setting with Q & A. This is not a wine tasting experience, simply breakfast and conversation. Tickets are $25 plus tax and fees.

March 3rd Breakfast:  Will be held at Pedroncelli Winery: 1220 Canyon Rd, Geyserville.  Join Winemakers Montse Reece (Pedroncelli), John Viszlay (Viszlay Vineyards) and Dan Barwick (Paradise Ridge Winery) for a casual morning of Q & A along with a breakfast before heading out to Barrel Tasting.

March 10th Breakfast: Will be held at Spicy Vines: 441 Healdsburg Ave, Healdsburg.   Join Winemakers Doug Hackett (Spicy Vines), Susie Selby (Selby Winery) and Mike Brunson (Christopher Creek Winery) for a casual morning of Q & A along with a breakfast before heading out to Barrel Tasting.

All Wine Road events are for adults only… NO ONE under the age of 21 is allowed to attend Barrel Tasting -including no babies or children of any age

Iron Man Santa Rosa @ Lake Sonoma to Downtwon Santa Rosa
Jan 16 @ 11:09 pm – Jan 17 @ 12:09 am

Race through the vineyards of California’s wine country as you work your way to this iconic IRONMAN finish line!

The new IRONMAN Santa Rosa offers athletes the same high-quality event they’ve come to know and love in the heart of Sonoma County, with winding roads dotted with vineyards and world-class accommodation. For past race results from IRONMAN Vineman, please visit the event page.

Staged in beautiful Sonoma County and traversing through quaint communities like Geyersville and Healdsburg, IRONMAN Santa Rosa draws not only triathletes, but their wine and food loving family and support crews back every year. The event is a ticket into the heart of the world-famous wine regions of the Napa and Sonoma valleys, and once you’re there, you won’t want to leave. There are B&Bs and boutique hotel options to suit every budget, as well as thousands of wineries, craft breweries, and farm-to-table restaurants for pre-race fueling and post-race celebrations. The race also offers a springboard for vacation itineraries including the San Francisco Bay Area, Santa Cruz mountains, and coastal redwood forests.

The split transition race begins at Lake Sonoma, nestled in the beautiful mountains of Northern California. The 2.4-mile swim is a two-loop course taking place in the calm, clean Lake Sonoma. Athletes will transition to their bikes, setting out on the 112-mile course featuring gentle rollers as they ride through famous wine country and quaint towns. The City of Santa Rosa hosts transition two where athletes will begin a tree-lined, two-loop marathon along the Santa Rosa Creek trail. The finish line will take place at the new Courthouse Square park ideally located in downtown in Santa Rosa where great food and wine can be enjoyed by all spectators.

Preserving the best parts of the iconic IRONMAN Vineman event and improving the overall athlete experience, the course, which is less than 10 miles from the original venue, is a tour of Sonoma County’s beautiful wine country and pastoral countryside, passing through famous grape growing regions including: the Russian River Valley Region, Dry Creek Valley, and Alexander Valley.

Old Grove Festival @ Armstrong Redwoods State Natural Reserve
Sep 14 @ 4:30 pm – 9:30 pm

September 14 & 15, 4:30 PM – 9:00 PM

The Annual Old Grove Festival takes place at the historic Redwood Forest Theater in Armstrong Redwoods SNR in September. This beautiful open-air theatre was built in the 1930s. Concerts and theatrical events took place there for decades until the theater was closed in the 1980s out of concern for natural resource protection. In 2006, the theater was reopened for limited use by Stewards of the Coast and Redwoods (Stewards) and California State Parks. Event reservations are limited to alleviate environmental impacts and due to parking limitations.

The Old Grove Festival features an outstanding variety of musical and theatrical productions that help Stewards raise funds to support our educational and stewardship programs, as well as continued advocacy for all State Parks. The festival also benefits the Save the Redwoods League, a nonprofit organization that protects and restores redwood forests and connects people with their peace and beauty so these wonders of the natural world flourish.
