SANTA ROSA, CA – As the 8 Series coupe nears its 20th anniversary in 2009, owners are stepping up their activities. The week before, it was a gathering in Mount Dora, FL. Now it’s the eighth Annual Russian River Wine Barrel Tasting Tour (ARRWBT) held in Sonoma County, an hour north of San Francisco. </p> Some 53 cars and 103 8 Series owners and friends took part in the three-day gathering, which comprised a Friday night banquet and awards ceremony at the host Flamingo Hotel in Santa Rosa, a driving-and-tasting tour of four Sonoma County wineries, a barbecue dinner, and a Sunday coastal tour and visit to Fort Ross.
