There never seems to be enough excuses to get out of town – even for only a day or two. Every time I manage to pull myself from my crazy schedule and get a change of scenery I ask why I do not go more often – I always end up feeling refreshed and ready for the upcoming week.
And what better place to go relax than in nearby Sonoma wine country? The golden rolling hills, warm sun, and sweet succulent smell of vineyards are really one of a kind, and over the next two weekends, several wineries are hosting the 39th Annual Barrel Tasting event in this special place. The barrel tasting offers wine lovers and collectors a chance to taste and buy wine from local wineries while exploring the Alexander, Dry Creek, and Russian River Valley’s. Many will be offering the chance to purchase wine now that is not yet available, and pick up when it is bottled. Bring food, as most wineries will not provide any!
