The Annual El Dorado Winery Association’s Passport Weekends includes two added adventures in taste, the Winemaker Galas! Each of the Galas take place on the Passport weekend’s preceding Friday evenings, April 5th and 12th at Mercedes-Benz of El Dorado Hills from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m.
Experience the great wine and food from this region in an intimate setting: Guests will rub-shoulders with the winemakers themselves from C.G. Di Arie Vineyard & Winery, Mediterranean Vineyards, Bumgarner Winery, Fenton Herriott Vineyards and many more of the region’s winemakers will be on hand as well pouring specially selected, rare and reserve wines from their cellars that are not generally available for the public.
Delicious food to pair from top regional restaurants presenting hors d’ oeuvres to pair with the evening’s selection of wines. Placerville’s Farm Table, and Heyday Café, plus El Dorado Hill’s C Knight’s Steakhouse, Milestone, and the new, Osteria Moto, to drop a few names.
A silent auction of limited hand-picked offerings and live music will cap the evening off. Tickets are $85 per person for either of the two Friday events. Purchase them HERE!!!
