One thread weaves through this tasting -- a desire to bring you the best wines.  This tasting is about the breadth of wineries from across the state, an enormous range of varietals, and wine growing appellations from all over the state.  All Family Winemakers tastings focus on wineries that are small (generally under 5000 cases), have limited marketing outreach, and will be represented by family members. This well-respected tasting is a once-a-year opportunity to tour and taste California's wine country under one place.

Why a summer barrel tasting?

The majority of Anderson Valley wineries produce high-end Pinot Noir, and Pinot really tastes best right before bottling time. By holding a barrel tasting in the summer, attendees will be able to evaluate the wines in a nearly finished state, instead of young wines that will change dramatically during the aging process.

So, when you buy futures, you know exactly what you’ll be receiving the next year!
