The 13th annual Tahoe City Food & Wine Classic will return to the shore of Lake Tahoe! This alfresco event features more than 30 tasting locations that highlight varietals from area wine producers and gourmet bites from top North Lake Tahoe restaurants and caterers. Attendees can sip, shop and take in stunning views of Lake Tahoe as they stroll down North Lake Boulevard in downtown Tahoe City.
In addition to fine wines, the event also includes craft brews and spirits, as well as non-alcoholic tasting options. Tahoe City’s boutique stores will be open for shopping, and live music will provide entertainment and dancing.
“Now in its 13th year, the Tahoe City Food & Wine Classic has evolved from a wine tasting event to include some of the phenomenal cuisine offered by world-class restaurants and caterers, and introduce residents and visitors to some of the boutique shops that are part of our mountain community,” said JT Chevallier, Tahoe City Downtown Association executive director. “It has become a popular kick-off to summer event at the lake, and as it sold out last year, we encourage attendees to purchase tickets in advance.”
Participating wineries include Rombauer, Crystal Basin Cellars, Ferrari - Carano Vineyards and Winery, Madrona Vineyards, Irish Vineyards, Lagunitas Brewing Company and many more. Gourmet bites will be offered by Jake’s on the Lake, Fat Cat Bar & Grill, Garwoods, Sunnyside Restaurant & Lodge, Wolfdale’s and others. The complete list of participants will continue to be updated online at www.TahoeCityWineWalk.com.
