Each year, Redwood Valley wineries and Germain-Robin distillery offer a special winemaker dinner on Friday featuring wonderful pairings of wines and brandy with hors d'oeuvres, dinner and dessert.
On Saturday & Sunday, visitors can meander along the back roads of Redwood Valley to each winery and distillery to taste library wines, unusual varietals, small production lots and experience the fun of tasting right out of the barrel. Guests will enjoy plentiful offerings of food, live music, and local farmers' market stands. Each winery is family owned and is unique in its setting, its wine and food presentations, and its welcoming ambiance. Visit with the winemaker, vintner or grower, and listen to their stories, ask technical questions and experience the wines of a truly unique appellation. www.atasteofredwoodvalley.com
