Harvest Passport 2014

presented by the Ventura County Winery Association

Harvest Passport

From August 1st – December 31st, 2014, the 2014 Harvest Passport is your ticket to enjoy wine tastings at ten different Southern California wineries (a $150 value).  Along this urban wine trail you’ll be able to experience artisan wines made with grapes from the lush vineyards of California’s famous growing regions – all the way from Napa to Santa Barbara.  Passport holders can sample the wines, tour the wineries’ production areas, and even help punch down newly-crushed grapes or sample wines straight from the barrel! 

Tickets:  $50 each
available through Living Social at this link

Bring your proof of purchase to any VCWA winery and you will be issued a 2014 Harvest Passport.  Use your passport to enjoy one full tasting flight at each participating winery.  Simply show your passport, and enjoy incredible wine tastings – it’s that easy.  10 wineries too much for one day?  Not to worry, you can use your passport at your leisure through December 30th.

Participating Wineries:

  • Panaro Brothers Winery
  • Four Brix Winery
  • Plan B Wine Cellars
  • Cantara Cellars
  • Magnavino Cellars
  • Herzog Wine Cellars
  • Camarillo Custom Crush Winery
  • San Vicente Cellars

Empty Bottle?


Nothing worse than an empty wine bottle (unless you just finished drinking it)!

Panaro Brothers Winery just bottled another new flavor – just in time for Thanksgiving.  It’s called “Sweet Syrah” and has been selling like hotcakes on a cold November morning since being released to the Public on Friday 11-22-2013.  Hurry in to get a taste before it’s all gone.  Made in a limited quantity of just 24 cases.  It’s the perfect Raspberry flavored Syrah for Holiday dessert drinking and/or spooning over cheesecake or vanilla ice cream … well, you’ve just got to try it to see what everyone is talking about.
