Ten wineries offer tastings at Foundry
May 7, 2004
Ten wineries, eight of them local, will provide tastings Friday at the Miners Foundry Cultural Center’s inaugural Wine Showcase benefit.
The local wineries are Double Oak Vineyards & Winery, Indian Springs Winery, Iron Mountain Vineyard, Lucchesi Vineyards & Winery, Nevada City Winery, Nevada County Wine Guild, Sierra Knolls Vineyard & Winery, and Smith Vineyards & Winery. The other two are Crystal Valley Cellars from Cosentino Signature Wineries in Napa Valley, and Woodbridge by Robert Mondavi in Lodi.
From 7 to 10 p.m., the Wine Showcase will also include hors d’oeuvres and desserts donated by restaurants and caterers, and a silent auction on unusual and vintage wines donated by local collectors.
One of the wine groups to be auctioned includes a Port Vertical produced by Robert Mondavi’s wine-making team in Woodbridge Winery’s beginning. Other items such as a wine backpack, art, books and a variety of other home accessories and garden art will be auctioned.
Pianist Greg Gavin and the string instrument trio “Emerald Mist” will provide background music.
Admission is $20, which includes a souvenir wine glass.
The Miners Foundry Cultural Center is at 325 Spring St. in Nevada City. Call the Foundry at 265-5040 for reservations and/or information.
