Sample the Sierra brings together local chefs/restaurants with neighboring growers/producers to turn out scrumptious samples craftily paired with the appropriate wine, brew or spirit. The festival marketplace includes locally made goods such as jam, soap, honey, and olive oil along with specialty products created right here in the county, such as fine art, jewelry, and crafts.
Festival goers can take home their favorite wines by purchasing directly at the Wine Sales Tent Sales benefit the Soroptimist of South Lake Tahoe, which over the years proceeds have exceeded $10,000.
