MINDEN - Tasty dishes and fine wines will be part of the Soroptimist International of Carson Valley annual Savor the Flavor Wine and Microbrew Tasting Feb. 26 at the Sierra Nevada Golf Ranch.
Wines from more than two dozen wineries will be offered, including Robert Mondavi, St. Supery, Geyser Peak, Sutter Home, Sebastiani, Canyon Road, Farallon, Monterey, Montevina, Rodney Strong, Talus and M. Trinchero of California; and from abroad, Barwang of Australia, Danzande of Italy, Caliterra of Chile and Vishon of France.
Food, wine and microbrewed beer will be sampled and displayed at booths around the lodge at Sierra Nevada Golf Ranch, which is offering its spacious rooms for the second year in a row, said Soroptimist member Donna Lee.
Booths will be placed so that wines that complement foods will be near one another. The tasting will be offered from 6 to 9 p.m.
The event will feature products from Tony King of Southern Wine and Spirits of Nevada, Capital Beverage, Reno Home Brewer and Crown Beverages.
Chefs from several Valley and Lake restaurants will provide food for Savor the Flavor, Lee said.
The event's mood, Lee added, will be set by the jazz guitar music of the Valley's own George Hanepen.
Those who purchase a ticket for the tasting will have the opportunity to win a door prize and ticket purchasers need not be present to win. Admission tickets are $25 up through Saturday and $30 at the door.
An auction of a wide assortment of gifts, from building materials to homemade goodies will be held.
Proceeds go to Soroptimist programs that the assist women, children and families in the Carson Valley.
