Father's Day Dinner & Tasting Weekend

Friday, Saturday, Sunday - June 13-15, 2014

Each year a number of Redwood Valley wineries and a brandy distillery offer a special winemaker dinner on Friday featuring wonderful pairings of wines and brandy with hors d'oeuvres, dinner and dessert.

On Saturday & Sunday, visitors can meander along the back roads of Redwood Valley to each winery and distillery to taste library wines, unusual varietals, small production lots and experience the fun of tasting right out of the barrel. Guests will enjoy plentiful offerings of food, live music, and local farmers' market stands. Each winery is family owned and is unique in its setting, its wine and food presentations. Visit with the winemaker, vintner or grower, and listen to their stories, ask technical questions and experience the wines of a truly unique appellation.

‘Tis the season when the leaves start turning, the weather is getting cooler, so we know we must start planning for the upcoming holidays.  Preparation ahead of time takes the stress out of entertaining and gift giving.  To help you keep more money in your wallet for gifts and entertaining, the eight wineries and our stellar brandy/spirits producer come together once again to offer special discounts on many of the wines they regularly offer.  Sales up to 40% off on select varietals allow you to stock your cellar and bar with the finest wines and spirits. 

Only a select group of the wineries will be open both Saturday and Sunday:  BARRA of Mendocino & Girasole Vineyards, Brown Family Wines, Cole Bailey Vineyards, Giuseppe Wines & Neese Vineyards, Silversmith Vineyards, and Testa Vineyards will be open both days.  

Wineries open Saturday only: Frey Vineyards, Germain Robin, Graziano Family of Wines, and Oster Wine Cellars.

In addition, many of the wineries will have artisan foods and works of art for sale.  BARRA of Mendocino/Girasole Vineyards will present many local artists who have created everything from abalone jewelry, fabric wall and garden art, fine woodworking, bird and bat houses  to organic soaps and lotions.  There's something here for everyone.

Admission is free, so bring your glass and go wine tasting , enjoy the light faire and holiday treats offered at each winery, and take time to listen to the music.  This is an event where you can relax, taste the wines (even some new releases and barrel tasting), take advantage of the outrageous sales and enjoy the back roads of Redwood Valley.
