Nevada City Uncorked returns to downtown Nevada City from 1-4 p.m. on Saturday, August 24. This is a sip-and-stroll event that includes sampling wines and foods at different venues throughout town. Each venue, whether it’s a historic location, winery, art gallery, inn, restaurant, or hidden patio, will feature a different local food purveyor and winery. Long known as the Queen City of the Northern Mines, Nevada City’s Victorian elegance is the perfect backdrop to showcase Nevada City Uncorked, an annual celebration of wine and food.
Explore Local Wines
Uncorked is proud to showcase the wines of the north Sierra Foothills, the best, least-discovered wine region in California. This year, Uncorked features wineries from Placer, Nevada, Butte, and Tehama Counties, including one winery that once boasted the largest wine cellar in the world. From Albarino to Zinfandel, Uncorked offers a gateway to the wines from California’s northeastern frontier.
Nosh on Gourmet Bites
In addition to the wines, Uncorked features a diverse selection of local restaurants, caterers, and specialty shops including a salumeria, sushi, a cheese maker and a chocolatier offering an array of tasty bites and signature flavors.
This year, new faces include BackPorch Market, The Stone House, and Kindred Culinary. They will be joining old favorites, Diegos, Kanes, Friar Tuck’s, Heartwood, and Sierra Cinemas. Uncorked encourages a connection, as much as possible, between local farms and participating food purveyors.
