The Zin Summit at Justin Winery on 3/16/13 has been cancelled, due to remodel construction. We invite you to visit the 16 Far Out Wineries individually and please join the mailing list so that we may notify you of upcoming FOW events. Thank you for supporting the Far Out Wineries and cheers!
Far Out Wineries Member Events
Tablas Creek • Blending Seminar • Apr 13 • 10am to 1 pm
Hundreds of you have joined us for one of our annual blending seminars over the years. If you haven’t yet, let this be the year. Partner Jason Haas and winemaker Neil Collins will lead a barrel tasting of the individual varietals (both reds and whites), and will discuss how we turn roughly one hundred components into the blends and varieties we make each year. Then, you will be set loose with graduated cylinders to produce your own blends. This event is extremely popular and sells out quickly. The cost is $30 for VINsiders and $40 for guests. Space is limited and reservations are required. Contact us at email@example.com or 805.237.1231 x30.
Tablas Creek • VINsider Shipment Tasting Party • Apr 28 • 10:30am to 5 pm
One benefit of the VINsider Wine Club is the opportunity, after each semi-annual shipment, to taste the wines in the shipment, learn what new projects we've been working on, and spend some unhurried time with the Tablas Creek winemakers and management. On Sunday, April 28th we'll be closing the tasting room to the public and dedicating it to our wine club members. We'll ask VINsiders to reserve a specific time slot (10:30am, 12noon, 1:30pm, or 3pm) and we'll take each group through the results of the 2012 harvest, our Biodynamic efforts, and a tasting through the wines in the spring VINsider shipment. We will serve a small dish to pair with the whites and another with the reds.

Opolo • Blending Parties • July 13 and 20 • 3-6pm
Join us in the barrel room as we gather our graduated cylinders and lab coats for one of the most anticipated events of the year. This is your chance to taste, mix, and create what you deem to be the perfect blend. Every new “winemaker” will get to create a magnum of their own special Bordeaux blend to take home. Our “expert tasting panel” will judge your wines and find the best blend in the group. The winemaker with the winning blend will take home an etched double magnum of their unique Opolo blend as a trophy!
