Mountain music, wine offered at Villa Gigli July 4

Staff reports

Mountain music, personified by folk singer Margaret Craig, returns to Villa Gigli Collection on Sunday, July 4, from 3-5 p.m.

While listening to Craig’s guitar strumming and soulful ballads, Ruggero Gigli will be serving guests his rosemary-studded focaccia and pouring three samples of wine – Moscato Bianco by La Famiglia de Robert Mondavi, Pinot Meunier by Domaine Chandon and Petite Sirah by Mitchell.

Meanwhile, in the meadow next to the trattoria, six Alpine County women artists will be displaying their unique crafts: Wandy Coyan, pine needle baskets and soap; June Dailey, plants and herbal essences; Gina Gigli, banners and masks; Sharon Lackey, clothing and jewelry; Camilla Olsen, soap and honey; and Carolyn Vaughn, raku and high-fire functional ware.

Villa Gigli is at the top of the first hill, overlooking the town of Markleeville, on the road leading to Grover Hot Springs. The cost of the wine tasting is $3 per person.
