The February 15 Update

Our many wineries are open year round, or nearly so; in February and March they offer a series of special tastings. This week we’ve added a rare Macari vertical tasting–8 vintages, 6 of which are sold out–in their private cellar, and the Sparkling Pointe pairings with cheeses of the world–each March Saturday, a different set of cheeses. More to come.
