Saturday, August 26, 2017, from 1:00 to 4:00 pm in downtown Nevada City
Friar Tucks Partners with Gray Pine Winery, at Friar Tucks
Nevada City Uncorked is a celebration of wine and food with an historic flavor. The town’s Victorian elegance is the perfect backdrop to showcase Uncorked, a sip and stroll, walk-about-town event that includes 17 venues featuring wineries and food purveyors showcasing the agricultural bounty of our northern Sierra Foothills region, and the historic charm of Nevada City.
Friar Tucks will be showcasing their culinary talents, offering one of their house specialties, Ahi Poke Wontons: ahi poke served on crispy wontons with tobiko and soy sauce pearls.
Gray Pine Winery is quickly establishing itself as the premier, go-to winery in the region for Bordeaux reds. This year they will be showcasing their award-winning wines including the 2016 Sauvignon Blanc, 2013 Bordeaux Style Red, 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon and their featured new release, the 2014 “Pennridge” Bordeaux Style Red Blend.
Friar Tucks will anchor the hub of Uncorked at the intersection of Commercial and Pine Streets. Friar Tucks, an enduring Nevada City icon and oldest wine bar in California, serves as the perfect backdrop for an afternoon of great wine and delicious food.
Nevada City is a tapestry of quaint, curious and unique spots to explore. Whether it is the view from the balcony of the National Hotel, a seat in the historic Nevada Theatre, or a hidden downtown patio, Nevada City Uncorked offers a timeless view of the single best example of Victorian Gold Rush architecture in California. Other venues include historic spots, inns, restaurants, art galleries, wineries, and retail spots.
Once again there is a raffle to win one of four different Nevada City Vacation Packages.
