We pulled out all the stops to ensure the 2013 Grand Tasting was the most fun guests had all year! More information for 2014 coming soon.
The Saturday Evening Grand Tasting Event has something for everyone–25-30 wineries pour up to 120 wines; Five Culinary Schools serve up taste-tempting dishes hoping to win the award for “Best Dish” at the Great Outdoor Cooking Competition; talented professional chefs join forces to create an exciting dish to satisfy taste buds—will it be designer paella? Live entertainment engages as you browse the Silent Auction, then savor dessert as the Awards and Live Auction complete the evening—all in support of higher education and cultural enrichment in the Eastern Sierra.
