Dry Creek Winery now demands $15 mandatory tasting fee

Dry Creek Valley contacted me this morning to tell me that they were going to insist on a mandatory, non-included-in-wine-purchase $15 per person tasting fee.

Given that this kind of fee is excessive for the area, and would even raise eyebrows in Sonoma, I merely thanked them and waited to hang up the phone before laughing.

Obviously they are off the schedule. So I'll do some more calling tomorrow and see what we can scare up now. There's a bunch of other good wineries around there, I just don't know them by name :-(
