A tasteful benefit and ‘Knightro’ stout

A benefit was held Friday for Women of Worth (WOW). Regional Wines: A Tasting, was presented by South Nevada County Chamber of Commerce and held at Art du Jour Gallery (10966 Combie Rd. No. 106B).

Six wineries were represented: Avanguardia, Naggier, Sierra Knolls, Smith, Montoliva and Pilot Peak. They offered wines that some of us may not have tried otherwise, such as Avanguardia’s Cristallo and Pilot Peak’s Paramour.

All the wines were equally popular and it was a great way to stock up on some nice bottles.

Better still, the proceeds went to a most worthy cause. WOW’s mission statement is posted on their website: “Women of Worth assists families in crisis, especially those escaping domestic violence or sexual assault. We work to increase self-reliance and improve the quality of life for individuals and families by assisting them in rebuilding their lives and make a fresh start with dignity, hope and safety.”

WOW’s next event is a poker run this Saturday. The 72 mile ride starts at The Union newspaper on Sutton Way. For more information, call Anne at (530) 274-3939 or WOW at (530) 272-6851 or http://www.women-of-worth.org.

There is plenty to choose from again this week. The Celtic Festival is always a popular event, with something for everyone. I heard that Sierra Nevada Brewing Co. is creating an Irish stout called “Knightro” specifically for this event.

The Open Studios Art Tour begins with a reception at 6:30 p.m., Thursday, Oct. 7 at The Center for the Arts, 314 West Main St., Grass Valley. For more information, visit http://www.open


Performing at The Center this Friday is Martin Sexton with Leslie Stevens opening. These are two fantastic performers, so I plan to attend this one with a chance to see them both in one night. Go to http://www.thecenterforthearts.org for more information on this and many other events offered by The Center.

I hope to see everyone out and about this week. Enjoy!
