Rutherford Appellation Wineries Passport Weekend December. 6th & May 8th, 2013 Welcome! Our 2013 Rutherford Passport Weekend event is scheduled for Dec. 6th – 8th, and will include exclusive barrel tastings, food and entertainment, and conversations with the winemakers - all of which will make for a memorable time in beautiful Napa Valley.

Ticket Sales are now closed. We hope to see you next year!

The two days of Passport tasting will be on Saturday, December 7th and Sunday, December 8th, from 11:00 am to 4:00 pm on both days. 

We will also be continuing the traditions started last year and offering a VIP All-Inclusive Pass that will give access to a Friday night VIP Welcome Reception from 7-9pm at Round Pond Estate, an exclusive Winemaker dinner on Saturday night at Alex Restaurant in Rutherford, as well as the two days of Passport Tasting.
