Taste of Lakeport
8/17/2012, 5:00 PM-8:00 PM
The 16th annual food and wine event, A Taste of Lakeport, will once again pair premium Lake County wines with gourmet food from local purveyors. Taking place along three blocks of Main Street in downtown Lakeport on Friday, August 17, the food and wine tasting runs from 5:00 to 8:00 p.m., with street dance following until 10:00 p.m. Event tickets are $30 in advance or $35 at the door. Tickets include all activities and a souvenir wine glass. A $15 ticket is available for food tasting only.
An expected twenty wineries will offer tastes from fine wines either produced in Lake County or made from grapes grown in the county. Twenty local restaurateurs and caterers will provide tasty bites matched to the wine being poured. To keep the fun going, live music will play throughout the tasting, and a great antique car collection will be on view. After 8 p.m., the party turns into a lively street dance under the stars with music by the Jimmy Z band.
