Russian River Vineyards in Russian River
Russian River Vineyards 2019 Harvest BBQ

At Russian River Vineyards, we put in a hard day's work. At harvest, that goes double. So if we decide to throw a party featuring a southern-style, slow-cooked BBQ feast of ribs, chicken and brisket with mac & cheese, baked beans, and freshly baked cornbread, its because we've worked up a huge appetite.

You may have heard that grilled meats flavored with smoky, tangy barbecue sauce pair exquisitely with a rich, peppery Zinfandel. You may have also noticed that we've released some fantastic Zinfandel wines this year, including Chester's Zindfandel, named after our beloved estate dog.

Don't believe the rumors, though; we are not producing Zinfandels to justify our love of BBQ. But do join us for our Harvest BBQ Party. And if you decide to pair the brisket with Chester's Zinfandel, you won't be sorry. To complete the southern-style atmosphere, we'll also have local musical artist Ricky Ray to provide some southern rock, blues, and soul.

When: Saturday, September 28th, 2019, 5-9pm
Where: Russian River Vineyards Estate

So bring your appetite, bring your friends, and help us bring in the 2019 harvest in style. Tickets avaliable now!
