The 44th annual Friends of the Sierra Madre Library Wine and Cuisine Tasting will be held on Friday evening, February 21, at Alverno Villa, 200 N. Michillinda, Sierra Madre, CA. The event will be an elegant affair featuring more than two dozen vintners providing superb wines and local restaurants offering delectable hors d’oeuvres and desserts.
Robert Newton, Chair of the event, wants everyone to know that we have again added an early bird premier event. Tickets are $80 and allow you early admission at 6:00 PM. At the premier event a sommelier will give a special wine tasting, premium chocolates will be paired with the red wines, and a local restaurant will offer hors d’oeuvres to be paired with the white wines. There will be a special raffle as well. Tickets to the premier event are limited to 100 guests and are going fast so act quickly to enjoy these exceptional activities.
Tickets to the main event are $60 and provide admission at 7:00 PM. For this event we are planning some new features as well as bringing you quality wines from a number of award winning wineries and tastings from many fine local restaurants. We are limiting the number of tickets sold to 400 to add to your enjoyment. Tickets to both the premier event and main event are on sale at the Sierra Madre Library, The Bottle Shop, Savor the Flavor, and Arnold’s Frontier Hardware & Gifts.
Throughout the evening you will enjoy live music and Magic Castle magicians as you stroll about the Alverno sampling the wonderful wines and appetizers. A silent auction will again be offering lovely artwork, services, tickets to special events, restaurant vouchers, and many other tempting items. For a delightful evening of enjoying fine wines, tasty food, and lively entertainment amidst the company of friends, please join us at Alverno Villa on February 21st.
The committee would like to thank local Sierra Madre artist, Victoria Randall, for designing and donating this year’s art work that is featured on all flyers, post cards and posters. The painting will be offered as a silent auction item as well as another piece of her art.
