My friends and I have made it an annual habit to taste our way through the wine regions of Dry Creek and Alexander Valley during "Winter WineLand". The Wine Road has three annual weekend events that connect wineries around Sonoma County for one reasonable tasting fee. The Wineries open their doors for the tours with extra tastings and food pairing--plus goodies for the Designated Drivers too. Purchasing your tickets in advanced will get you the best deal. At your first chosen location you will get a wine road map and wrist band that will allow you to enjoy tastings at all the participating wineries. The attached webpage below has more specifics about these wine events. Cheers!
