March Events for Wine Lovers

Coming Soon: the greatest weekend of the year

 


No matter where you live, there’s a great wine event lurking around the corner for the weekend of March 22 and 23.

As the weather warms up (and I know we’re all glad to see the fierce storms and cold weather of recent weeks recede into the past) folks can once again begin to think about getting out and smelling the roses, and the whites, and the reds! March is a very busy month for wine lovers, with a slew of events happening around the country.

Not only are individual wineries getting ready to gear up for the coming visitors of spring, summer and fall, but large events are helping us all shake off the cold of winter and look forward to drinking and sharing our favorite wines! The weekend of March 22nd and 23rd is particularly ripe with pleasures this year, but before we get to that juicy plum of a pair of days lets kick off this go round of “where to go” with something Zinfandel related!

Paso Robles

Grow Zinfullly Wild, March 15-17

This year’s Paso Robles Zinfandel Festival is scheduled for March 15-17. Over the three day weekend, participants will be delighted with winemaker dinners, tours, and wine tastings.

San Francisco

The Rhône Rangers, March 22-23

It’s hard to believe but this year’s edition of the Rhône Rangers tasting is their 16th annual! This is the event for all the Grenache, Syrah, Mourvedre loving folks out there. This year you’ll be treated to a wickedly good grand tasting, with wines, auction items, and seminars. I would love to be able to join the Mourvedre seminar, one of the country’s underappreciated varieties for sure. But with over 100 wineries pouring over 500 wines, even if you miss the seminar you’ll be able to school yourself on Mourvedre at this year’s event.

For more information visit Rhône Rangers.

 
 

Seattle

Taste Washington, March 23-24

For the all around epicurean there is no better event in the Pacific Northwest than Taste Washington, where chefs, winemakers, and consumers come together in a smorgasbord of gourmet love. This is an event that features wine and food, but there are also seminars and tastings of craft beers and ciders and displays of glassware. This is a great event, one in which both the geek and the casual indulger will be well provided for!

Fort Collins, Colorado

Wine Fest Fort Collins, March 22

And for all of you closer to the center of the country rather than the coasts, why not combine some late season skiing with a night of wine, food and beer? With a reserve wine tasting, premium beer tasting and silent auction, there’s plenty of fun to be had, in addition to the grand tasting which will see hundreds of fine wines and beers, both local and from around the world, being poured. In addition, you’ll be treated to some of the finest fare local restaurants have to offer.

    Here's to GDP, who does for New World wines what Gandhi did for outcaste Indians. I live in a very green land which is a wine desert : alcohol is prohibited.... by law. So it needs a phone call to procure a case of wine (Diplo plonk, of course) delivered within the hour by your ever-obliging bootlegger, these days @ about $160 the dozen. It's much more cost-effective to stick to Scotch & Vodders for the sundown haze, now about $400 the doz. My point is, I've tasted the best wines of Euroland at the very chateaux & bodegas & cantinas, and there's nothing to beat that. HOWEVER, thanks to GDP, I do want to make a last trip to the New World to sample the product thereof. CHEERS !!!

  • If you're in the mood for Pinot Noir, head to the charming town of Campbell, CA (in the Silicon Valley) on Sunday, March 24 for "Pinot Paradise," a celebration of all the vintners who make Pinot Noir from the Santa Cruz Mountains. It's a rare chance to get all 30 plus wineries who make SCMtns Pinot in the same room, accompanied by lots of great food from local restaurants. It's at Villa Ragusa in Campbell. Taste Pinots from Alfaro, Big Basin Vineyards, Burrell School, House Family, Mount Eden, Thomas Fogarty and Windy Oaks, to name a few. It's positively a Pinotmersion! :>
