YEE: Flight Club at Tin Barn Vineyards

Way to keep the Valentine's weekend going by attending another North Bay Yelp Elite Flight Club at Tin Barn Vineyards! It was an absolutely gorgeous Sunday on February 15th & with an equally scenic drive up :)

Vinh & I with our vino

Tin Barn is a little hidden gem in an industrial park. Vinh & I wouldn't have been able to fund it if not for the clever little red signs! We arrived with a few minutes to spare & were greeted by Kevin & Rachel to check in & get our name tags.

Amy & Steve were our hosts for the day from Tin Barn. Sarah & Jonathon from Cellar Pass provided the yummy treats to pair with the wines. Amy provided us with plenty of info of where the wine originates. We got to taste plenty of the vinos: Joon Rose of Syrah (paired with mussels), Pinot Noir, Sonoma Zinfandel (paired with pork buns), Russian River Zinfandel (from the barrel!), Merlot, & Cabernet Sauvignon. My favorite was the Joon Rose of Syrah with the mussels, so good! There were also decadent chocolates by Le Belge. My favorite was the dark chocolate raspberry, yum!

Tin Barn & Cellar Pass also provided us with goodie bags with a bar of chocolate & a corkscrew! You guys rock! We ended up heading home with a bottle of the Joon Rose, yay! Thanks Kevin, Rachel, Tin Barn & Cellar Pass for an awesome edition of flight club :)
