"The draw of California wine country is easy:
It’s the land flowing with wine. However,
it’s really the nuances that make each wine
region stand out from one another. One of
the unique characteristics that I’ve noticed
about Sonoma is the accessibility of many of
the wineries. Visitors can simply walk in to
many of the tasting rooms since so many of
them offer public tastings daily.
One such winery, Dry Creek Vineyard, located
in Healdsburg’s Dry Creek Valley, is making
their winery even more accessible with a
host of new wine tasting experiences.
tasting experience, called “Meritage: The
Art of the Blend”, strikes at the heart of
anyone who’s ever considered giving
winemaking a shot on their own. Guests are
taken to a private tasting area inside the
cellar to receive a hands-on lesson about
the art of this famous Bordeaux-style blend.
Guests are given all the winemaking tools
needed to create the right blend. This
tasting experience takes place on Saturdays
and Sundays by appointment only and is $45
per person.... "
