10 Things to Do in Windsor After Your Pliny Adventure

This Friday, February 1, marks the 15th annual release of Russian River Brewing’s Pliny the Younger. Lines will circle the block around the Santa Rosa brewpub and, for the first time, the new 10-acre brewery in Windsor.

The opening of the Windsor brewery means more Pliny to the people – twice as much beer has been crafted for the 2019 release compared to previous years. The new location also means that the town just north of Santa Rosa will welcome an unusual amount of visitors. (Russian River Brewing expects up to 20,000 patrons at its Windsor site alone over the two-week event).

To encourage visitors to explore the town of Windsor, a free downtown shuttle service has been launched and local hotels are offering Pliny pilgrims discounts. It may not be the first item on a wine country itinerary, but if you’re in town for Pliny we definitely recommend that you also check out Windsor, this sometimes overlooked Sonoma County gem.
