The Sierra Vintners Spring Regional wine trail is coming up, next Saturday, May 19th. The regional wine tour will include: Avanguardia Wines, Bent Metal Winery, Gray Pine Winery, Lucchesi Vineyards & Winery, Nevada City Winery, Smith Vineyard and Szabo Vineyards. Each winery will have music, food pairings and plenty of wines to taste. Stop by any one of the seven participating wineries on Saturday, May 19th between 11am-5pm.
In addition to wine tastings, the stop at Smith Vineyards is also a celebration to Gary & Christina Smith who are retiring at the end of the month. So if you’ve never been to their vineyard, it is time to motivate! Mario & Linda will have fun Lucchesi games tradition of hula tossing and steer roping to win deep wine discounts. Avanguardia presents our delicious, unique & award-winning wines, live music with Bob Mora & John Guerra, and special treats for pairing, including caviar with our sparkling wine, “L’edonista”.

There are 19 wineries on the entire trail, so Sierra Vintners wineries have divided into two separate Saturday events to enable you to enjoy plenty of time at each winery. If you can’t make the May wine tour mark your calendars for the fall tour September 22nd with Bear River Winery, Bonitata Boutique Wine, Fawnridge Winery, Lone Buffalo Vineyards & Winery, Mt. Vernon Winery, Naggiar Vineyards, Sierra Knolls Vineyards, and Viña Castellano.
