Savor the Flavor coming up at Sierra Nevada Golf Ranch

Staff reports

Tasty dishes and fine wines will be part of the Soroptimist International of Carson Valley’s annual Savor the Flavor Wine and Microbrew Tasting Feb. 26 at the Sierra Nevada Golf Ranch.

Wines from over two dozen wineries will be tasted, 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 spaced 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 certain foods will be near each other. The tasting will be held 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 fabulous 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.

All people who purchase a ticket for the Wine and Microbrew Tasting will have the opportunity to win a door prize, and ticket purchasers need not be present to win.

An auction of a wide assortment of gifts, from building materials to homemade goodies.

Proceeds go to the many Soroptimist programs that the support women, children and families in the Carson Valley.
