Barnsley Resort draws guests for singular special events as well as vacations, and the annual winter wine dinner series (held once per month during the winter) headlines Saturday evenings at Rice House. Winemakers from the Barnsley Resort’s favorite vineyards, such as Blue Rock in Sonoma County, Calif., and Silver Oak in Napa Valley, fly in to host the events, treating oenophiles to expert knowledge and a flight of wines paired with creative menus by executive chef Charles Vosburgh. You’ll enjoy, for example, the opportunity to compare wines of the same varietal and year, which were aged in different barrels, to help evaluate nuanced flavor profiles. Though prices vary by event, the average cost is $200.
