Passport 2017
Wine Adventures! 

April 22, 23 and April 29, 30

El Dorado Passport 2017 is more than just wine-tasting. In its 26th year, it's has become widely known as a weekend (or two if you are truly adventurous) dedicated to exploration, hands-on education, and celebrating one of the most beautiful areas in the Northern-California region.
It's your passport to a weekend full of adventure. It's your ticket to freely roam through the Sierra Foothills. It's a time dedicated to engaging with all things local: landmarks, attractions, hot spots, amazing food, and most of all, locally-produced wine from award winning wineries. 

With your Passport, you will have unlimited access to 20+ wineries. Select your starting winery and let your inner traveler lead the way to the next stop! Click here for the participating wineries and offerings you can enjoy!
Here's what we're serving at Narrow Gate:

The wood fired grill will be smokin' up a ginger-garlic stir fry and our famous "Passport Pannini" smoked pork loin and Havarti with sage aioli and caramelized onions. (Gluten free & vegetarians welcome.) 

 (pssst!  Early Bird ticket pricing until Feb 1)
