Passport to THE GREAT OUT THERE – The new date is JULY 17th-19th, 2020

April 18 @ 11:00 am - 4:00 pm










Event Dates Change to July

Wine IS essential! To happiness, comfort and making survival food palatable.
However, the El Dorado Wine region, in compliance with health advisories, is practicing limited consumer interfacing. So though we cannot hang out with you in our tasting rooms and chat over a delicious glass of Grenache or Cab Franc, we would be thrilled to have you pick it up curbside or get it delivered through online ordering. El Dorado wineries are known for their creative spirit and grit—so please follow us on facebook and Instagram as we post individual winery online specials, curbside promotions, educational webinars, streaming winemaker tastings, and more.

The 2020 Passport to The Great Out There is now even further Out There!
Like everything else exciting and fun that we were going to do together this spring, it has been postponed. The new date is JULY 17th-19th, 2020. But now we have nothing to do but sit inside and think of more ways to make this the best event ever. So hang tight everyone and we’ll catch up in July over chilled glass of Vermentino or rosé of the day!

For those of you who have already purchased tickets, please check your email for further details.
