Best of Calaveras "Wine & Food Walk" Winners Announced!

Copperopolis, CA...Oh, what a night as the Calaveras Winegrape Alliance and Copper Valley came together to host the first Wine & Food Walk at the Town Square! Close to 200 ticketholders gathered for this fundraising event to taste the best of Calaveras County wines and small bite pairings. Ten vintners shared 30 wines and five restaurateurs created 10 delicious small bite pairings. Guests got to cast their votes in the Peoples Choice Contest to determine the best white wine and red wine pairing. And to sweeten the evening a bit, a dessert station included cinnamon apple donuts from the Red Apple Murphys as well as mini chocolate eclairs. While the desserts weren't a part of the contest, we think that these treats tied in terms of popularity.



Jeffery Luhn and Jeff Chadwick performed live music in the gazebo and a local juggling duo entertained guests in the middle of the square. A spirit of celebration and excitement was felt as this inaugural event was captured in these pictures by photographer extraordinaire, Darrell Lavin.

All of this fun was for a good cause as all proceeds benefit the Calaveras Winegrape Alliance nonprofit organization. Bill and the team at the new Gateway Hotel were recognized at the awards ceremony for helping to make this event such a success. SOOOO, who were the winners you ask? Find the complete lineup of Wine & Food Pairings along with the Winners highlighted below. Watch for our next Wine & Food Walk event taking place in the spring of 2022.
