Uncorked Barrel Tour
Saturday, November 23 2019 | 11-4

Tickets are $49 each and include a commemorative Wine Trail wine glass.

17 wineries in the Applegate participate in this fun, self-guided tour. You pick your starting location from the list below, but you’re free to visit any number of the 17 wineries on the Trail. Each winery will offer an appetizer and a wine for tasting plus an educational opportunity to learn more about the wine making craft. We’ll be posting the final list of pairings closer to the event, so check back for details. This event also provides a great opportunity to stock up on wines for gifts or parties. We encourage you to bring your friends, designate a driver and enjoy this great event. Its also the perfect opportunity to explore new wineries that you’ve never been to before!

Uncorked guests will also enjoy being Wine Club members for a day with 15% OFF all Applegate Wine Trail wines the day of Uncorked.

Designated drivers don’t need to purchase a ticket and may sample the food. The event will conclude at 4pm, however many tasting rooms will remain open until 5pm.

Please Note – In an effort to conserve natural resources no tickets are mailed. You have your purchase confirmation as a receipt. Simply arrive at the location you’ve chosen, your name will be on a list to check in and start your tour. For those who have groups who want to start at the same location, please purchase your tickets early and make sure everyone chooses the same start location. Locations fill up so that’s the best assurance of everyone getting your first choice start location. Ticket Sales will be halted at 5:00 PM on Friday before the event so the wineries can properly prepare for your visit!
