Wine and Stars at Reverie

Jul 25-27 Join us for a weekend of wine tasting, delicious cuisine, and stargazing.   The weekend begins with a wine tasting on Friday at 5pm followed by a three-course dinner paired with wines from the El Dorado wine region.  Saturday we pile on the wine bus for a full day of tasting in the Fairplay appellation, stopping at three wineries and enjoying a gourmet lunch along the way.  We love the Fairplay wineries because they offer an intimate tasting experience with the owner or winemaker often working the tasting room -- but that doesn't mean the wines are not interesting or complex!  Fairplay is a relatively young appellation that is still trying to figure out what it wants to be, with winemakers and growers experimenting across the board  both with the grapes they are growing and what they are doing with them.  Fairplay offers the visitor the rare opportunity to experience a burgeoning wine region in an intimate and personal setting without the crowds -- what Napa and Sonoma were like 30 years ago.  Saturday evening we will turn our gaze to the stars with the help of a high-powered telescope and a local astronomer who will be on hand to help us explore the night sky on this evening of the new moon, when the stars should be spectacular away from the city lights.  Sunday will be free time to explore the property, take a dunk in the pond, or just laze the day away in a hammock.  All meals and hydrating beverages are provided throughout the weekend, including a three-course dinner with wine pairing on Friday night; a continental breakfast, gourmet picnic lunch and dinner on Saturday; and brunch on Sunday. The Reverie kitchen specializes in hyper-seasonal and hyper-local fare prepared with ingredients grown on-site in our own gardens and from local farms and ranches.  Most dietary restrictions can be accommodated with advance notice (at least one week). Please note that this is a camping event, and you need to bring your own gear.   Details on schedule and logistics will be provided once confirmation of payment has been received.   Tickets: Wine and Stars at Reverie
