Get your passports ready!

It’s that time of year again!  The are APril showers, which means…bud break, wildflowers, and Passport!

It’s been 23 years of Passport to Dry Creek Valley.  Way back in  1990, the Winegrowers of DCV started this event to bring people together at a time of year when we can celebrate the vineyards, the families, the roots of DCV and of course – the wines.

I am so excited to be attending Passport to Dry Creek Valley again this year!  During the weekend of April 27-28, 50 wineries will welcome visitors with special pairings, wine, food and entertainment.  One of the special parts of Passport is that many wineries offer unique tours, and grape to glass stories of their property.

Check out this list of yummy wineries that I’ll be stopping by (partial list of all pouring)

  • Bella Vineyards & Wine Caves
  • Chateau Diana
  • DaVero Farms and Winery
  • Dry Creek Vineyard
  • Dutcher Crossing
  • Frick Winery
  • Fritz Winery
  • Göpfrich Winery
  • Gustafson Family Vineyard
  • Kachina Vineyards
  • Kokomo Winery

  • Peterson Winery
  • Quivira Vineyards & Winery

I’m really excited to see all of the new names on the list!

In addition to these graet wineries, you can take a tour of Preston Farm and Winery on Sunday, and check out Grandpa’s Red jug wine – one of the last great jug wines produced.  You can also wander the gardens, and taste some of the delicious organic produce.   Or, on Saturday, take a ride up the hill to Gustafson Winery, with sweeping views of the valley, and learn about the unique soils while sipping the delicious Cabernet.

I can’t wait to see you there!  Tickets are $120 for the weekend, or $70 for Sunday.  This is event ALWAYS sells out, so make sure to pick up your tickets early HERE!
