February 24 – Bring Out the Barrel!

CAMINO, CA – January 26, 2018 – 5 wineries with tasting rooms along Carson Road in Camino are ‘bringing out their barrels’ for wine consumers who want a glimpse into the flavors of 2016 vintage wines on Saturday February 24th from 11am to 5pm. The 5 participating wineries will be sampling selected wines to showcase the flavors and quality of wines from the 2016 and 2017 harvests and offering specials and small bites. These wines are quietly maturing in their barrels and most will be bottled in the next few months for release dates into 2019. Tickets are $15 and can be purchased at

“There is an intense amount of curiosity about the effect of how California’s 5 year drought affected the vines and the grapes, particularly regarding the 2016 vintage, when the drought was at its peak. We all look forward to showing off our rich and tasty wines from this vintage and most of us will be selling futures”, said Angela Findleton-Cardinalli, one of the organizers of the event. “Our customers have asked for a regional barrel tasting event and we’re going to deliver a great experience!”

The Carson Road Wineries were organized in 2008 to concept, create and host fun and innovative events to showcase the great wines and legendary hospitality in the Camino region. For this event, guests will be assigned a starting winery where they will collect a commemorative wine glass and a wristband that will serve as their ticket to fun on that Saturday.

The participating wineries for the 2018 Bring Out the Barrel Tasting are Bumgarner Winery, Findleton Estate & Winery, Illuminare Estate, Crystal Basin Cellars and Mastroserio Winery.
