ARR has the perfect accommodations for your 2014 Passport Weekend wine tour.
Passport Weekend PLUS A Night By The River
The most anticipated annual wine event in the El Dorado Wine Region is coming this April. For wine lovers, ARR’s riverside accommodations will truly make it a dream getaway. Make your plans now.
ARR is located near several excellent wineries where you can begin or end your Passport Weekend tour. Staying in one of our riverside cabins, RV sites—and now, early camp sites—adds enchantment and convenience to your experience.
Passport Weekend is sponsored by EDWA, El Dorado Winery Association. This year the Passport theme is Tales from the Cellar.
Each participating winery is bringing a favorite story to life, and serving themed foods served with their wines. You could toast the health of Don Corleone from the Godfather, or have a glass of wine with Frodo Baggins or Gandalf from the Lord of the Rings. Experience the romance “Under a Tuscan Sun” or discover exactly what wine will pair with “Green Eggs and Ham”? This is a wine event unlike any other and is sure to be as memorable as a great book.
Many wineries will have live music and special wine pricing just for the Passport ticket holders. Of course you can enhance your experience with the “Library Card” and discover even more benefits such as library wine tastings, special vertical wine tastings, special barrel tastings, special Library Card only wine pricing, and a larger tasting glass to enjoy it all with.
