Celebrate the Holidays along Route 116

The holiday season is a special time of year, cherished with friends and family. Stories, laughs and hugs are exchanged in the comfort of our homes. Delicious food and wine are savored over sentimental moments. We look back on the year with a full heart, grateful for the life we are living. 

The wineries of Taste Route 116 want to open up their “homes” with you this holiday season to be a part of those joyful memories you’re about to create. Bring your families out for a festive celebration at one (or more) of our wineries! Rain or shine, Russian River Vineyards will be hosting live music every weekend (Friday – Sunday). Ektimo Vineyards will be hosting table-side barrel tasting all month long, while offering special discounts on futures to Taste Route 116 wine club members. Char Vale Vineyards will be serving festive wines and having special holiday deals. Harvest Moon Winery will be hosting sparkling wine tasting flights every weekend (open on New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day). The wine educators at all of our properties are excited to welcome your smiling faces and treat you to a wonderful time!
