This year’s Passport Weekend is April 27-28; 11:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. both days. Dry Creek Valley Passport weekend is truly the best passport weekend for a variety of reasons. Not only do the wineries welcome visitors with an abundance of wine, food and entertainment, but also since the ticket sales are limited, you will not find yourself waiting in long lines, searching for places to park, or facing heavy traffic. Dry Creek Valley is a unique California wine region with a plethora of small boutique wineries, located in a bucolic agricultural valley, producing high quality wines. Passport weekend is a first class experience that is well run and many visitors return year after year to this exquisite event.
More than 50 Dry Creek Valley wineries are rolling out the red carpet for an exclusive weekend of new wine releases paired with a bounty of food from top Sonoma County chefs. You can meet the winemakers and owners to learn more about winemaking in this picturesque appellation. Wineries will be offering live music or entertainment. In past years, this has included circus troupes, belly dancers and safari adventures. Passport-holders will savor exquisite food and wine pairings, and delight in discovering each winery’s unique Passport “theme” – “Once upon a vine…”, Dry Creek Regatta, Tour of Italy... the possibilities are as varied as the wineries themselves.
