Tiger Lily Winery returns to Pleasant Valley Aug. 23
Tiger Lily Winery returns to El Dorado County. Tiger Lily winery was the first Pleasant Valley Winery in gold mining times. It started in the mid 1850s and was a leading winery in the 1860s to 1880s. Unfortunately, it burned down in the mid 1890s and it is not known if the winery was ever rebuilt.
John MacCready wanted to preserve Pleasant Valley wine history and decided to use the Tiger Lily name for special selections of Sierra Vista wine.
Join the crew at Sierra Vista Winery, 4560 Cabernet Way in Placerville, to sample the newly released 2009 Tiger Lily Outlaw and a pre-release tasting of the 2010 Tiger Lily Outlaw on Saturday, Aug. 23 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Bill Gray from the county museum will be at the winery with Tiger Lily history. He will also be displaying his gold collection and gold history from this area.
Guest will barrel taste the 2011 Ancient Vine Reserve Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon that are being bottled at the end of August. These wines have received their final blending eliminating the risk of barrel variation for the taster.
Capital Sierra Catering will be at the winery with its burger bar. Cost for a burger with all the trimmings is $10 per person or wine club members $5 per person with four reservations per wine membership.
To see if burgers are still available go to firstname.lastname@example.org or call 530-622-7221.
