Sierra Vintners Wine TrailThe Sierra Vintners wine trail returns Saturday, July 16th. The regional wine tour will include: Avanguardia Wines, Bent Metal Winery, Coufos Cellars, Grant-Marie Winery, Gray Pine Winery, Pilot Peak WinerySmith Vineyard and Szabo Vineyards.  Each winery will have music, food pairings and plenty of wines to taste.  Stop by any one of the six participating wineries on Saturday, July 16th between 11am-5pm.

Bent Metal Winery will have food by Caramelized Catering, including sun-dried tomato marinated chicken and vegetable skewers over orzo salad and a dark chocolate brownie, plus music by The Gary and Eva Quartette.  Avanguardia Wines will have skewered Italian shrimp with pesto pasta salad, plus a pairing taste off with beef and pork jerky.  Smith Vineyards opens up their picturesque red barn only twice a year, so if you’ve tasted their wine at the their downtown Grass Valley tasting room and want to visit the winery, this is one of those opportunities.

If you can’t make the July wine tour mark your calendars for the September 24th event including:  Double Oak Vineyards & Winery, Lucchesi Vineyards & Winery, Nevada City Winery, Solune WinegrowersKatoa Cellars and Sierra Sky Winery.
