A toast to B.B. Cohn

Free wine tasting isn't extinct. There are still plenty of Sonoma Valley wineries that let you sip for free, just check out the coupons below and you're set to go.

Want more? Then you need to go with my new 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". Isn't it way better to present a VIP card than to pull a crumpled coupon out of your back pocket? Get the card! It's so cheap it pays for itself in your first hour!

I've even made you a map of Sonoma's popular free tastings. Budget Sonoma? Free Wine? Nothing wrong with being cheap if the free wine is this good!
