Tickets are on sale now for the 45th annual Friends of the Sierra Madre Library Wine and Cuisine Tasting. The event will be held on Friday evening, February 20, at the Alverno Villa, 200 North Michillinda Avenue in Sierra Madre, and will be an elegant affair featuring more than two dozen vintners providing superb wines and local restaurants offering creative food and desserts.
Tickets to the premier event are $80 and allow early admission at 6:00 p.m. A sommelier will give a special wine tasting for those at the premier event, a chocolatier will provide chocolates to be paired with the red wines, and local Pasadena restaurant, Trattoria Neapolis, featured in Zagat Guide 2014, will offer some delectable hors d’oeuvres. A chance to win a very unique wine basket will be offered again this year.
Tickets to the main event are $60 and provide admission at 7:00 p.m. Both are on sale at the Sierra Madre Public 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 Villa sampling the wonderful variety of wine and food. 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 the Villa on February 20.
The committee would like to thank local Sierra Madre artist, Melanie Campbell-Carter, for designing and donating this year’s art work — “A Comfortable Pairing”– that is featured on all flyers, post cards and posters. The painting will also be offered as a silent auction item.
