Tour, taste and toast your way through Butte County on Saturday and Sunday, October 6-7th, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. each day. A passport opens the doors to amazing specialty farms and wineries where visitors will sample tasty artisan olive oils, specialty nuts and award-winning wines, all while getting to know local farmers and winemakers behind them. Participants can set their own pace as they explore a variety of the 34 farms and wineries along this year’s Farm Trail.

“Butte County is uniquely positioned with a diverse array of farms and wineries, making our annual passport event stand out for both wine and food enthusiasts,” said Jamie Johansson, owner and farmer at Lodestar Olive Oil and co-founder of the Sierra Oro Farm Trail. “In addition to a gourmet tasting experience, guests get to meet generations of family farmers and winemakers. That personal relationship with the growers is what makes our tour so special.”

This year’s Farm Trail features three new stops: Tri-L Mandarins, Milk & Honey 1860 and Earthworm Soil Factory, making a total of 14 wineries and 20 specialty farms where guests can enjoy self-guided tours of the scenic agricultural landscape, meet local farmers and winemakers, and sample the amazing bounty Butte County has to offer.

Due to the popularity of Passport Weekend, an early sell-out is expected. Passports cost $30 per person and include a 2018 map and free commemorative wine glass for each ticket purchased. Wine glasses will be picked up at the first winery you visit on the farm trail, where your passport will be punched and ID will be checked.

It's a fundraiser... yes everyone who's planning to attend needs to buy a ticket

All attendees, including designated drivers, need to have a passport in order to take part of the activities. Please be prepared that all wineries and some farm locations will charge $5 for tasting at each location if you don't have a passport
