There will be over 30 wines for you to sample throughout the weekend. Here are few to give you a taste:

Deadbolt California Winemaker’s Blend – Pernod Ricard USA released this proprietary red blend in October 2012. Deadbolt is one of those big, bold, jammy, fruity full-bodied red wines from California, a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Zinfandel, Petite Syrah and Syrah. It is deep, dark purplish red in the glass with cherry, plum, mocha flavors. The mouthfeel is velvety smooth. At 13% abv you definitely get all that bold fruit without the typical California heat.

Sequin Moscato – A glamorous addition to any occasion- whether a ladies’ night out or movie night in, this wine adds a dose of sparkle and style. Each sip beams with a twinkle of delicate bubbles, delivering the sweet aromas and flavors of citrus blossom, honeysuckle, soft white peach and honeyed nectar. Enjoy Sequin Moscato slightly chilled, or get creative with a signature wine cocktail. Either way, Sequin Moscato provides a lovely pair with a creamy Gruyere cheese, fresh fruit or even your favorite dessert.

Massimo Malbec – The deep hue and rich texture of Massimo Malbec exemplifies Argentina’s hallmark grape, grown in the country’s famed Valle de Uco region of Mendoza. This wine is made from grapes grown in one of he world’s highest vineyards; nearly 4,000 feet in altitude on the slopes of the majestic Andes Mountains.

Massimo Malbec is dark garnet with purple edges. Full bodied, with powerful blueberry and plum notes framed by violets, spice and tobacco on a lingering finish.

Be. Pinot Grigio – Open the shades, breathe in the sweet air and pour on the optimistic goodness of Be. Bright Pinot Grigio. Full of light and lovely whimsical wisdom complemented by the perfect touch of unforgettable charm. Snagging the spotlight is simply effortless with this Pinot Grigio that breezes in with its sun-ripened fruit flavors, shines with carefree cues of the tropics, and finishes with an exquisite ending that welcomes you to your place in the sun.

The exclusive Wine Village is expected to sell out. Be part of the select few to experience this new addition to the beloved Lake Tahoe Concours d’Elegance by purchasing your tickets now online at or by calling Liquid Blue Event at 775-851-4444.
