Saturday, July 15 at Lava Cap Winery 6:00 pm

Put on your suspenders, bow ties, hats, flapper dresses, pearl necklaces, and dancing shoes for El Dorado Winery Association’s 2nd annual Blind Barrel event. The association will bring the food trucks, live swing band and fine wine from 18 wineries – all you need is an appetite for everything raucous, rebellious and Roaring Twenties. This year’s event begins at 6:00 p.m. at Lava Cap Winery, and tickets are $33/person, plus taxes and fees. Prohibition had a dramatic impact on winemaking in El Dorado County, prompting many families to produce wine in small batches in their homes and leaving the region with only one active winery by 1936. Now, nearly a century after Prohibition began in the U.S., El Dorado County is home to 70 wineries and the largest, most diverse selection of varietals on the planet.

For all you club members, it’s time to come up to the winery and enjoy Member Appreciation Week. Not only do you get a 25% discount on wine purchases up to a case, but we are also releasing the 2016 Member Selection wine made exclusively for you…only you get to taste it and purchase it. And included in your membership for this week is a Dedrick's cheese plate and a glass of Madroña wine. It’s also the perfect time to pick up that favorite library wine, Single Vineyard varietal or order Port. For members who cannot join us here, we are offering the same 25% discount on all wines. If you decide to take advantage of this benefit with a case purchase (limit 1 case), the shipping will be included in the price of the wine! Does it get any better than that?
