WINE EVENTS

Everything revolves around wine here at Borra. Our events are just frosting on the cake and a great excuse to come out and visit our family winery. More events are in the works, but if you can’t make any of these dates, we always look forward to seeing you in our tasting room, open Friday through Monday from noon to 5pm, or by appointment!

See you soon!

Black Friday Q: Would you rather stand in line or drink some wine? We've given the tasting room ladies the day off, so our winemaking team will be manning the tasting room from 12pm-5pm. Those two guys - Markus and Jacob - make every drop of our wines and are willing to share all their secrets. Markus is quite the deal maker, too, so stop on by and enjoy “Black Friday” wine specials too low to advertise, along with complementary tasting with your wine purchase. Hope to see you!

We've always got a bunch of extra candy just begging to break our diets from Halloween. Everyone's invited to stop by our open house from 12pm to 5pm Friday, October 31st or Saturday, Nov.1st to try your favorite name-brand candies with our Borra wines. Judge for yourself which is the best pairing... may need to try several times just to be sure!!! (We'll provide the candy at no charge, by the way. You just pay the usual $5 per person for tasting.)

The Barbera-Is-Back Bash: No Bull!

Saturday October 18th, 2014, 12:00PM - Saturday October 18th, 2014, 4:00PM

Dear Borra Fans, Unfortunately, we have sad news: no bull. We must finally reveal that we have parted ways with our beloved bull, “Bue Grasso.” We thought he could control his fiery temper and ravenous thirst in particular for our Barbera (which you can see him drinking when he posed for our wine label artist). However, he had a rather obnoxious habit of chasing our forklifts, and the straw that broke the camel’s back was when he rammed into a support post and almost destroyed our winery. Happily, we do have a very worthy replacement for our old friend, which you can see (and taste) for yourself only on Saturday, October 18th, when we let you preview the return of our Barbera – last bottled on its own back in 2008. We’ll then seal up the cases of this new 2012 vintage until the official release later in November. We’ll offer light snacks to complement the Barbera and our other wines, and for those of you who were big Bue fans, get crazy and take a 'selfie' with our old friend, or take a label home to remember him by. We hope to see you! Saturday, October 18, 2014, 12 p.m. to 4 p.m. at Borra Vineyards $5 tasting fee (refunded with a purchase of 3 bottles or more)

Yeah. We make a nice Zin. But we also make some killer white wines using rare grape varietals - all small production, hand-crafted. Enjoy complementary tasting while you sip on the new release of our 2013 Chardonnay, in addition to White Fusion, our Kerner Blend “Nimmo”, “Crealto” white dessert wine and Steve's favorite Chardonnay's from the wine library. To celebrate the Sip, Savor, Lodi Weekend Event & 2014 Harvest, you'll have the rare opportunity to taste right out of the tank the new 2014 whites! For those who are willing to take on the fashion police and dare to wear ALL white to the event, you’ll be treated to a glass of 2012 Chardonnay or 2013 White Fusion for only $3 a glass! We encourage you to bring a picnic and enjoy our favorite time of the year at the winery: “Harvest Time”. Hope you can join us!
