Our day of exploring wineries of the Russian River was drawing to a close. We had just one more stop on our schedule and it was a good one: Russian River Vineyards!
Wine tasting in Russian River

The Taste of Route 116 was in full swing. It was time to explore a new winery: Furthermore Wines!
A favorite Russian River Valley winery was participating in a favorite annual event, the Taste of Route 116. That made it an easy decision: let’s visit Taft Street Winery next!
One of our favorite annual events was upon us once again. The Taste of Route 116 represented a great reason to drive up to the Russian River Valley and we couldn’t wait to check in with our “home” winery, Balletto Vineyards.
With “Shelter in Place” rules dragging on, it takes a bit of creativity to keep wine tasting a part of life. Recently we decided to compare and contrast three Pinot Noir wines from Balletto Vineyards.
As the Taste of Route 116 was coming to an end for us, we had time for just one more winery. The answer was clear: we needed to visit Jigar Wines.
We were well into our day of tasting along Route 116, savoring wineries new and familiar. Our next stop was one of our favorites: Harvest Moon Winery.
We were enjoying the annual Taste of Route 116 event, which gave us an ideal excuse to visit one of our favorite Russian River tasting rooms: Taft Street Winery.
Being a member of a winery’s wine club has so many benefits that it is difficult to limit our memberships. One annual event that keeps us coming back every year is the Taste of Route 116 that features the wineries in the Russian River wine area. Our first stop was at our “home” winery for the area, Balletto Vineyards.
Belonging to a wine club is marvelous. Belonging to ALL the wine clubs would be incredible! For one glorious weekend, one club membership works at every participating winery in the Russian River area. That’s right, it is time to attend the Taste of Route 116!
