Nevada City’s Victorian elegance provides the perfect backdrop for this sip-and-stroll event that includes 16 different venues featuring local food purveyors and regional wineries. Each venue, whether it’s an historic location, inn, art gallery, restaurant, winery, shop, or secret hideaway will include wine tasting and food sampling.
Consider Reiki’s Kitchen Event Center’s creamy honeydew melon soup with Sauvignon Blanc from Fawnridge Winery from north Placer County, on a hidden patio in the heart of downtown. Or teriyaki meatballs from California Organics with a splash of Avangardia Winery’s Ampio, at the historic Golden Era Saloon.
You might prefer sushi from Nourish with Albarino from Tehama County’s The Abbey of New Clairvaux Vineyards, in the Victorian parlor above Treats. Maybe you would enjoy charcuterie from The Ham Stand with a full-bodied red from Butte County.
Never forget the raspberry truffles from the Nevada City Chocolate Shoppe with a well-aged vintage Cab from Renaissance Vineyards in Yuba County.
In all, 16 local restaurants, caterers and food purveyors will join 16 wineries representing five north Sierra Counties including Placer, Nevada, Yuba, Butte, and Tehama Counties. From Albarino to Zinfandel, Uncorked offers a unique gateway to the wines from the north country.
