HOLIDAY IN CARNEROS
11/21/2015 - 11/22/2015
More than 25 years ago, a group of wineries banded together to promote the area and extol the qualities of the vineyards and fine wines they produce. This year’s HOLIDAY IN CARNEROS takes place on Saturday and Sunday, November 21 & 22 from 11:00am to 4:00pm each day. Tickets are on sale now for $50 per person and $15 per person for designated drivers. Advance tickets may be purchased at www.carneroswineries.org through Friday, November 20th at 5:00 p.m. and at the door both Saturday and Sunday during the event.
Known primarily as an excellent Chardonnay and Pinot Noir growing region, the Carneros appellation is also becoming famous for such surprises as Grenache, Merlot and Petite Syrah and home to two large and prestigious Sparkling houses. The new list of wineries participating include Cline Cellars, Gloria Ferrer, Homewood Winery, Jacuzzi Family Vineyards, Keating Wines, Larson Family Winery, Meadowcroft Wines, Peter Cellars, Poseidon Vineyard & Obsidian Ridge Winery, Robledo Family Winery, Schug Carneros Estate, Tin Barn Vineyards and Ty Caton Vineyards.
The new VIP Experience will provide an individual, up close and personal day with each of the four wineries. The VIP’s will be escorted by bus to four wineries: Larson Family Winery, Meadowcroft Wines, Robledo Family Winery and Peter Cellars. Each winery will offer a different and unique experience for the guests. Meadowcroft Wines will provided a blending workshop along with food samplings, Larson Family Winery is offering a reserve tasting with the winemaker in the barrel room along with food samplings, Peter Cellars is providing a barrel tasting and chocolate pairing and Robledo Family Winery is offering a wine and food pairing experience with their chef. The VIP Experience is very limited with only 48 tickets being sold each day. The VIP’s will also be able to partake in the General Admission experience. The VIP ticket is $125 per person.
The General Admission tickets for Holiday in Carneros are still available for $50 per person. There are 12 wineries participating in the General Admission ticketing and will each provide their own version of holiday fun. Look for wine specials, special tastings, pairings and food samplings.
