"Bring Out the Barrel" in El Dorado county

By Chris Macias

More than two dozen El Dorado county wineries are getting ready to roll out the barrel and let customers take a taste. "Bring Out the Barrel" is set for Jan. 29 - 30, with a weekend of barrel tasting from 2010 and other recent vintages. Along with food and other merriment, some wineries such as Fenton Herriott are offering "futures" pricing for wines that have yet to be bottled. Participating wineries include David Girard, Auriga, Jodar, Holly's Hill, Mount Aukum and many more. A weekend pass costs $20, and the event runs from 11 a.m. - 5 p.m. daily.
