The South Shore welcomes back the 8th annual Sample the Sierra, where over 60 regional tastemakers will be showcasing cuisine that’s paired with locally crafted wine, beer, and spirits.

Sample the Sierra features local restaurants, wineries, breweries, and distilleries who work directly with El Dorado County food producers to craft an all inclusive dining experience that highlights on the area’s unique blend of flavors. Attendees will take a culinary journey through the region as they sample more than 40 booths of expertly paired food and drink.

If you are a culinary adventurer, wine and beer connoisseur, or farm fresh enthusiast, then this is a festival you cannot miss! There will be live music from local bands Sierra Gypsies and Taking Root, as well as a marketplace of local vendors, artists, and an after-show at Benko Art Gallery.
