Bella Nota – An evening of wine and music

For the second straight year, Indian Springs Vineyards in Nevada City will present Bella Nota, an evening of wine tasting and classical music, to benefit Hospitality House, a community shelter for the homeless.

The Friday event will begin at 4:30 p.m. in the lovely gardens of the Roth Estate at 12282 N. Bloomfield Rd. in Nevada City.

Bella Nota, in its 13th year, will feature special wines from Indian Springs, includes the Martinai Trio consisting of Ronald Folsom on violin, Connie Kupka on viola and David Speltz on cello, along with guest musician Dave Riddles on bassoon.

The Roth Estate gardens are considered one of the most beautiful settings in the Sierra Foothills, with a flower-ringed floor at the foot of an intimate stage where the musicians will perform. The gardens are on the property of Jan and Steven Roth and are located just outside of downtown Nevada City. The event takes place in a shaded environment.

Hospitality House is an emergency shelter for the homeless in western Nevada County. Founded in 2005, the shelter Ð based on a nomadic model involving local churches and synagogues Ð has helped hundreds of homeless through three seasons. The nonprofit organization also offers a Grass Valley drop-in center for those in need of referrals, meals and other assistance.

The smoke-free event will offer food provided by the Holbrooke Hotel. No pets are permitted. Parking is limited; shuttles will be available at the Rood Center.

Tickets are $25 (children under age 17 are free) in advance and $30 at the door and are available at The Book Seller and BriarPatch Coop in Grass Valley and at Indian Springs Vineyards Tasting Room at 303 Broad St. in Nevada City. For more information, call (530) 478-1068.
