The Barrels of Corralitos


Join the wineries of the idyllic Corralitos Wine Trail in the Santa Cruz Mountains for a day of wine tasting, food & entertainment!

Taste new & yet-to-be-released wines from Pinot Noir to Zinfandel

Enjoy live music, barrel samples, & special barrel pricing on futures

Ticket includes tasting at all 6 participating wineries and commemorative glass. Food will be available for purchase.

$75 early bird before August 15th / $100 after August 15th

TICKET DETAILS: Your ticket includes admission/tastings at each participating winery, entertainment at select wineries, and a souvenir wine glass. When you purchase your ticket you’ll select a “Check-In” winery based on where you want to start. This is where you’ll receive your wine glass, map and wristband. After that, you’re free to explore any of the 6 participating wineries along the Corralitos Wine Trail. Each winery has a limited number of tickets to start at so that we are able to spread guests out along the Trail. If your first choice is sold out, please chose an alternate starting point.

This is an adult only event and there is no shade or water available in the parking area so please leave your pets comfortably at home.
