FRIDAY AUGUST 24TH Wine Tasting Tour and Luncheon.
(Registration event, see sign up details below)
Join us on Friday, August 24th for another stunningly, picturesque Wine Tasting Tour and Luncheon. The route features some of the most beautiful roads in Northern California, whisking you to two vintners that will tempt you with the most delectable reds and whites, with an optional third winery stop (you choose) selected on the morning of the driver's meeting, as well as a sumptuous lunch filled with foods to tease your palate. The Rally begins at the Holiday Inn Express in Watsonville, then cruises over Hwy 152 (Hecker Pass) to the Eastern Santa Cruz Mountains, where drivers will feast their eyes on massive groves of majestic redwood, oak and pine. Participants will cruise on sun-dappled roadways, under lush, green canopies of trees, seemingly transported to another world. After the serenity of a flora-filled drive, senses will be further stimulated with a delicious Wine and Chocolate Tasting, followed by a gorgeous, buffet lunch. Participants will enjoy a glass of wine, paella with chicken, sausage, salmon, shrimp and vegetables, along with salad, fresh-baked bread and dessert. For those that would like to venture further in their gastronomic adventure, participants may then travel to the optional winery---either the Dorcich Family Vineyard or Clos La Chance---both offering delicious wines and exquisite views (the cost of this option is not included and must be covered by the participant). At the conclusion of the day, drivers will be guided back to Watsonville for some rest and relaxation. Reservations for the tour and luncheon must be made ahead and will be $68.00 per person.
