During the upcoming Barrel Tasting weekends, the Wine Road is offering four options for you to have breakfast with local winemakers. And, a filling breakfast before wine tasting is always a great idea.

The four options listed below include a full breakfast along with time for Q&A with the winemakers. Bring your questions—learn more about winemaking, what to be aware of when tasting barrel samples, and what to look for when making buying decisions when purchasing futures.
