One of the best and most exciting events happening in the Russian River Wine Country is Barrel Tasting put on by Wine Road.

The event features over 100 wineries and held in two weekends in March. The first weekend is March 4-6 and the second is March 11-13. Yes! This is a three day event! And the best part? It’s only $20 per weekend. Only $5 if you bring an under-aged participant or designated driver (recommended).

The difference between regular wine tasting and barrel tasting is that you have a unique opportunity to taste and purchase (usually at a discounted rate) future wines offered by your favorite wineries. Or discover a new favorite and be the first among your friends to get it!

Lodging is going fast for this three-day tasting extravaganza, so please look at the Raford Inn’s availability here for this event. Since our availability is going fast, please look at our partners on Wine Country Inns or Russian River Inns for wonderful accommodations for this great weekend of fun.


On a personal note:

This will be my last blog post for the Raford Inn. I have to say how much I will miss working for Dane and Rita. I can’t express in words  how valuable the experiences I’ve had here have benefited me personally and professionally. I also can’t say enough about how much I’ve enjoyed serving and connecting with our wonderful guests. It’s never good bye, but just see ya later! Thanks again Dane and Rita!  Love, Angela
