Sample the Sierra festival in Tahoe announces wine-and-food pairings

Sample the Sierra is a farm-to-fork festival celebrating the best food, wine and art in the Sierra Nevada, Sierra Foothills and Lake Tahoe regions.

This year’s 4th annual Sample the Sierra festival on September 1 will feature 16 different tasting booths, each showcasing the variety of textures, flavors, and styles of the Sierra Nevada mountains.

New this year, attendees can look forward to sampling locally made spirits from Tahoe Moonshine Distillery and Tahoe Blue Vodka, and ice cold beers from Great Basin Brewery and Stateline Brewery. The beverages will be paired with food samples made by area chefs from fresh produce donated by local farms. Sample the Sierra is a perfect opportunity to try food and drinks from the local’s favorite places for the low admission price of $30.
