The “Green and Gold Food and Wine Festival” on April 9, 2016
6 to 9 pm @ Gold Country Fairgrounds-Sierra Building
This Week’s Featured Winery
On an eastern slope of the Northern Sierras, just above the American River Gorge, Champion Racecar driver Scott Pruett and his wife, Judy, decided to turn their dream of becoming winemakers into reality. They wanted to create special, exciting, small lot, hand crafted, premium wines which would be true to their fruit and could be enjoyed by wine lovers everywhere in the company of good friends. Unlike the fast paced world of racing, there is nothing rushed about this endeavor. Each grape cluster ripens slowly, and the wine itself ages in the finest French Oak barrels under the watchful eyes of the winemakers. The results of such patience are wines that are lush, complex, and a delight to the palette. So while we gather family and friends to enjoy the fruits of our labor of love, we hope you will do the same. Cheers!
