Producers from the Sierra Foothills, Paso Robles, Napa, Sonoma, Mendocino, Lake County, the Santa Cruz Mountains, Lodi and the Bay Area.

Five chefs preparing Barbera-friendly cuisine

Indulge in wood-fired pizza and dishes like Tuscan pork loin with pesto pasta, grilled corn with shallot truffle butter, Bar-Bera-Q chicken, authentic paella, and refreshing lemon raspberry sorbet, just to name a few.

35+ artisan vendors, interactive experiences and entertainers

Stroll through the artisan vendor market, listen to music from local performers, visit with defenders of wildlife and animal rescuers and take home a commemorative photo from a vintage photo booth. All in a picturesque meadow surrounded by vineyards at the historic Terra D’Oro Winery.

You spoke. We listened.

Wineries will be placed throughout the expansive meadow under the shade of oak trees and umbrellas, not in large tents. Enjoy more air conditioned shuttles running frequently from the free parking lot.
