The 25th Annual Winter WINEland is a great opportunity to meet winemakers, taste limited production wines, new releases, or library wines. All participating wineries will highlight a vintage, varietal or vertical tasting for the weekend. Ticket price will include wine tasting at all of the participating wineries for the weekend. This event does not take place at one location, you travel from winery to winery, visiting the ones you are interested in exploring. This is the perfect event to book Beau Wine Tours transportation. We love hosting large groups in our comfortable and spacious shuttles as well as more intimate tasting excursions in our luxurious town cars and limos. More than 140 wineries will be participating in the Alexander, Dry Creek, and Russian River Valleys, book our services for the perfect way to experience the best of Winter WINEland. This annual event always sells out and there will be no ticket sales at the door.
An Interactive Day of Food, Wine & Floral
Second Wednesday of Every Month, Year Round
Three leading businesses have banded together to offer the Sonoma County Living Tour, an exciting and interactive day of unforgettable hands-on learning experiences in intimate settings in the charming Sonoma Wine Country town of Healdsburg. Start the day designing the perfect floral centerpiece as you learn design techniques for natural arrangements at the charming Dragonfly Floral School, on a six-acre organic flower farm. Gain a deeper understanding of the art of food and wine pairing by enjoying delicious wines with diverse foods on Wine Country Walking Tours’ behind-the-scenes experience of carefully curated tasting rooms and restaurants in historic downtown Healdsburg. Then cook like a local as you create a four-course meal with seasonal artisan ingredients at the acclaimed Relish Culinary Adventures cooking school.
You’ll learn the secrets for taking a bit of the Wine Country lifestyle home with you, allowing you to confidentially plan anything from a simple gathering with friends to an extravagant feast by featuring outstanding wines, amazing food, and beautiful floral arrangements.

Members of the Wine Road welcome you to their wineries and lodgings for two exciting weekends 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 a form of wine tasting where you can sample the wine straight out of the barrel. This tasting process takes place either during the course of wines development or prior to bottling. This event is 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.
March 18th – 19th, 2017
