The Best Waterproof Shoes for a Rainy Barrel Weekend

It's once again Barrel Weekend, that glorious time of year when you sample (and pre-order) oodles of delicious vino along the Northern Sonoma County Wine Road. There's just one problem: The forecast calls for rain on Saturday and Sunday in Sonoma. Since nothing puts a damper on a weekend of wine tasting like damp feet (and ruined shoes), we've rounded up a collection of water-resistant kicks that can handle the muddy winery parking lots. With a little legwork (or overnight shipping), these beauties can be yours before you hit the first vineyard.
