Tickets are still available for the 17th annual food and wine event, A Taste of Lakeport. On Saturday, August 24, five blocks of Main Street in downtown Lakeport will be closed to make room for the fine wines and foods of Lake County. The tasting runs from 5:00 to 8:00 pm, with a street dance following until 10:00 pm. Event tickets are $30 in advance, $35 at the door, and 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. Local restaurateurs and caterers will provide tasty bites to sample with the wines. This year, all the tastings will be offered from booths located in the middle of Main Street in Lakeport. To keep the fun going, live music will play throughout the tasting by Polecat Rodeo and Without A Net. An antique car collection will be on view as well.
