Celebrate the season’s bounty

Fridays, Saturdays & Sundays in November

Taste the Season 2023 Dates and Times of Tastings

Weekend One- November 3-5, 2023

Weekend Two- November 10-12, 2023

Weekend Three- November 17-19, 2023

Weekend Four- November 24-26, 2023

Join us this November for our Taste the Season touring pass program! We are excited to be able to invite you to visit and taste holiday Inspired food and wine pairings at 20 + winery properties over four weekends in November.

Guests may choose from an Individual Tasting Pass ($75 plus tax and service fee) or a Couple’s Pass ($75 plus tax and service fee). Again, these passes give you access to 20 + properties with a maximum of eight winery tastings in one day. In other words, both passes are for a maximum of 16 tastings.

A couple tasting at eight wineries in one day would use one Couple’s Pass completely. An individual would need at least two days to visit all wineries. But whether Individual or Couple, you can also spread your visits out over the four three-day weekends and just visit two or three wineries at a time.

Tastings will be available from 11:00am to 5:00pm. When purchasing your passes, you will indicate the wineries you wish to visit and on what date. (You are no longer required to book a specific time for your visit.)

Taste the season passports are available on our website on October 1, 2023 and numbers are limited, so they will sell out. Reservations will close at 6 am the day before event date. We also have designated driver passes available at a discounted rate.

You will reserve your winery selection when you purchase your passports, and these will be confirmed by email afterwards. Descriptions of all available tastings are listed below.
