Is Passport Wine Weekend on your calendar yet?

If you’re looking for a wine adventure, mark your calendar for June 23 to 24, 2012 when the Calaveras Winegrape Alliance’s 23 member wineries/tasting rooms located throughout Calaveras County will be hosting 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 called, “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.

The unique event offers an ideal way for new 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 tickets are $30.00.  Buy tickets online here.
