Livermore Valley’s Barrel Tasting Weekend at McGrail Vineyards

Saturday, Mar 21, 2020 – Sunday, Mar 22, 2020

12:00pm – 4:30pm

Join us for the Livermore Valley’s Annual Barrel Tasting Weekend, where you can taste wines right out of the barrel, meet winemakers, and pre-purchase wines before they have even been bottled! 

Here at McGrail, we will be comparing three Clones of 2017 Livermore Valley Cabernets: Clone 8 from our estate, Clone 15 from our estate, and Clone 30 from our Lucky 8 Vineyard. The Cabernets were harvested at roughly the same time in 2017 and were grown in the same type of soil, but barrel-aged separately for the same amount of time.  In addition to our tastings, we will also have an aroma bar game set up for guests and there will be hourly prizes.

Soleil will be here serving gourmet, wood-fired pizzas and Smokin’ Hot Meats and Treats will also be here selling some amazing BBQ.

We will have live music both days:

Saturday: Meredith McHenry & Jimmy Ashley (1-4PM)

Sunday: Rock On Tap (1-4PM)

Lastly, B Inspired Designs will be here selling rustic, Livermore-inspired home decor and we will have fun gift items available for wine lovers.
