Winery barrel tastings are a popular wine country activity, but with dozens of wineries opting to usher in the tasters at peak volume, it’s easy to get barreled over by the crowds and the cost. This weekend, get away from the craziness with the ‘Not Barrel Tasting’
event at Trione Vineyards. Sip wine at your own pace, relax with picnic-like food from Peloton Catering and listen to the grooves of local music from BackTrax on Saturday, March 12, and the Kyle Martin Band on Sunday, March 13, at Trione Winery, 19550 Geyserville Ave., Geyserville. 11am–4pm. $20 includes two glasses of wine and food. 707.814.8100.
