Dry Creek Passport Weekend is April 28-29. Are you ready?
Passport Weekend means many things to locals. Some jump in feet first, visiting wineries, hiring a driver and navigating the Dry Creek Valley as only locals can. Others will vacate the area on Friday and stay away until sundown Sunday.
Participating Dry Creek wineries pull out all the stops, with chefs showcasing their talents with dishes designed to pair with the wines being poured. Musicians from throughout the Bay Area and beyond will come out of the woodwork to be heard in these winery settings. Winemakers will carefully choose the wines that showcase their abilities. (Tickets have been sold out for weeks, so if you don’t already have yours, don’t expect to get any.)
Those planning to go out for dinner this weekend may want to rethink unless you already have reservations. Others look forward to the weekend as a chance to show visitors what Dry Creek has to offer, exploring the rich valley and rolling hillsides for places to revisit once the busy weekend is over.
Taking all of this into consideration, what does Passport Weekend mean to you? As much as we all love a good winery function, is this one just a bit over the top for people who live here? Let’s hear your perspective on the upcoming weekend.
