Read the food and wine pairings for the Foothills Celebration

NOW IN ITS 15TH YEAR, the Foothills Celebration in downtown Grass Valley is one of the region’s premier wine and food tasting events. Participants gather on Saturday, March 5, from 1-4 p.m., to sip wine from more than 20 foothills’ wineries while sampling delicacies from local restaurants, including favorite nibbles from their menus. One of the more decadent offerings has been strawberries dipped in chocolate from a fountain.

Attendees also can shop at the clothing boutiques, art galleries, chocolatiers, home design stores, and antique emporiums in the historic district.

For the first time, the Foothills Celebration also features a waiters’ race, where about 25 waiters from local restaurants compete for a cash prize. Each waiter carries a tray with a wine bottle and a full glass of wine, hoping to beat competitors to the finish line without spilling.

The Grass Valley Downtown Association and Sierra Vintners hosts the Foothills Celebration, and our magazine is a sponsor. For tickets and more information visit Sierra Mention code “SFWA16” to receive an additional $5 off your ticket.
