Then you need to go with the Priority Wine Pass, a cool card that not only gets you two-for-one tastings but VIP treatment at the wineries as well. And yes, Local Wally fans get a special deal by using promo code "localwally" - the normal $125 price drops to $40 and the card is good for a year. The card is great, especially in Sonoma. It seriously pays for itself in the first hour.
