KELSEYVILLE, CA – The Lake County Winegrape Commission announced it will host a Lake County wine tasting event in Sacramento in May in conjunction with the 40th anniversary of the Sacramento Music Festival.
The tasting event will be held on May 25, from 3:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m., at the California Automobile Museum, 2200 Front Street, in Sacramento.
Lake County wineries will have an opportunity to pour wines at this consumer-focused event that will feature wine tasting, food and wine pairing, live music, and viewing of vehicles on display at the museum, according to Winegrape Commission President Debra Sommerfield.
Each of the participating Lake County wineries will supply wine for the event, and one wine each will be paired with food by Chic Le Chef of Middletown. Attendees will receive an educational booklet with information about the wines, the pairings, and several recipes.
Lake County’s participation is made possible by a recently awarded grant from the California Department of Food and Agriculture’s Specialty Crop Block Grant Program.
Admission price for the wine tasting is $40 per person. The Winegrape Commission also will offer a $50 ticket that includes the Lake County wine tasting event plus a ticket for one day’s admission to the 40th Annual Sacramento Music Festival.
The four-day music festival over Memorial Day weekend is well known for its presentation of jazz, swing, blues, zydeco, rockabilly, bluegrass, Latin and other music styles in Old Sacramento and various downtown venues. The popular event is presented by the Sacramento Traditional Jazz Society and the Sacramento Convention & Visitors Bureau and attracts tens of thousands annually.
