16th Annual Passport "Wine" Weekend sponsored by the Calaveras Winegrape Alliance06/23/2012
Location: Calaveras County Wineries
The 16th annual Passport "Wine" Weekend sponsored by the Calaveras Winegrape Alliance (CWA) will take place June 23 to 24, 2012.
Please join our 23 member wineries/ tasting rooms located throughout Calaveras County for a special weekend of gourmet foods, entertainment, special winery discounts and of course award winning Calaveras wines!
This exciting weekend kicks off on Friday night, June 22, at Murphys Community Park, with a "mini-Passport" event, "Taste the World of Calaveras!" The park will be divided into five "regions" of the world, and in each of these regions, you will have the opportunity to taste wines made from grapes with their origins in those "regions" and each region will showcase corresponding cuisine.
Participants are issued a commemorative glass and "Passport" that is stamped at each of the wineries visited on Saturday and Sunday, and if completed, entered in drawings for some outstanding prizes.
All participants must be 21 years or older, designated drivers are encouraged and receive non-alcoholic beverages.
The unique event offers an ideal way for new area visitors to become familiar with Calaveras County wineries as each winery showcases their unique personalities and award winning wines.
The price of the 3-day passport is $60.00 and includes admission to Friday Night's "Taste the World of Calaveras". Friday night only tickets are $30.00 and Sunday only is $30.00.
