HEALDSBURG, Calif., Feb. 10, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Wine Road, a destination marketing association of wineries and lodgings in Northern Sonoma County, announces WINElove weekend, a long overdue chance to get out and meet winemakers, taste limited production wines and new releases, March 19 – 21. The link to purchase “WINElove Access” goes live on March 1st.
Weekend visitors will be able to enjoy the beauty of Sonoma County and treat themselves to a relaxed, personalized tasting experience. WINElove Weekend will not take place at one location as participants will travel from winery to winery, exploring the ones that are of interest. Each winery will provide a minimum of three wines to taste and tasting fees at each winery are covered by the access pass.
“We’re excited to have nearly 40 wineries participating and eager to share their WINElove,” says Beth Costa, Executive Director of Wine Road. “For 2021, this will take the place of our annual Winter WINEland, which we could not do given the State stay at home order in January. This tasting experience will be much smaller in scope with only a few hundred reservations available.”
After purchase, visitors will need to book reservations separately at each winery they plan to visit to comply with COVID-19 restrictions, space limitations, and the requirement of seated tastings. Be prepared to be seated outdoors at all wineries and dress accordingly. Safety protocols required of wineries will be in place at each winery: outdoor seating, social distancing, and masks worn until seated. Each reservation will be for 1 hour. Given the new reservation requirement, it is suggested that visitors plan to visit three wineries per day.
Click on the program link at the Wine Road website to see a list of participating wineries, which currently include favorites such as Davis Family Vineyards, Hook & Ladder Winery, Pech Merle, Wilson Winery and Merriam Vineyards. A more detailed program for each winery will be posted on the Wine Road website on February 20th.
