Ladies and gentlemen, step right up to the Greatest Show in Dry Creek Valley – the Mounts Family Winery Circus and Medicine Show! Yes, Mounts is going for broke with their Old World Carnival theme for this year’s 25th Anniversary Passport Edition. Sample a variety of current release and library Miracle Elixirs (which cure any disease, remove stains, and prolong life), tickle your taste buds with delectables, and be entertained by a juggling, stilt-walking clown! Witness the Ringmaster’s spectacle, including musical entertainment…come one, come all!
Papapietro Perry Winery can’t go to Jazzfest, so they decided to bring it home to Dry Creek Valley! Join them for their annual New Orleans Jazzfest celebration where they’ll have great music, New Orleans style food and of course their fabulous, renowned pinot noirs. Come and get your beads on, take a seat on their relaxing patio and listen to Bluestate, the best blues band this side of the Mississippi!
Pedroncelli Winery is becoming ‘Trattoria Pedroncelli’ for this year’s 25th Anniversary Passport celebration. They’ll be transforming their lovely winery into a street corner in Italy where you’ll have the opportunity to enjoy delicious, gourmet Italian food pairings alongside their palate-wowing Zins while being entertained by local street artists. It’s fun times, Italian style, and where everyone is part of the family. Benvenuti!
Ah, Venice in the Springtime! Let Seghesio Family Vineyards transport you this historic Passport Weekend to Venice, Italy as they celebrate the “Feast of Saint Mark” as part of their 2014 Passport theme. Stop by Seghesio’s historic grove to enjoy their acclaimed zinfandels paired with classic Seghesio fare and some new Venetian favorites. They’ll also be rolling out some special library wines for your enjoyment, be providing live music, bocce ball games and showering their grounds with the splendor of red roses. All that’s missing from this idyllic reverie… you.
