While the vineyards throughout Sonoma County might be dormant all winter, Wine Road shakes the cold weather blues with its annual “Winter Wineland” event celebrating wine, art and education on Saturday, January 14 and Sunday, January 15, 2012. In its 20th year, “Winter Wineland” invites guests to create their own journey through wine country discovering new wines, speaking with special artists in residence, viewing art installations and learning about vineyard practices throughout the Alexander, Dry Creek, and Russian River Valleys.
Not only a celebration of wine in Sonoma County, “Winter Wineland” showcases the area’s reputation for inspiring creativity by highlighting the many artists that call the region home. It also honors the art and history of winemaking, giving guests behind-the-scenes access to the people, practices and wines that make Wine Road one of the most exciting wine country destinations in California.
Tickets include wine tastings and viewings at all participating wineries, including some that are not usually open to the public.
Over 140 winery members of the Wine Road in Alexander, Dry Creek, and Russian River Valleys in Northwest Sonoma County. A list of participating wineries is on the Wine Road website at http://www.wineroad.com.
