Clarksburg Wine Cheese & Bread Faire

Clarksburg's Old Sugar Mill will host its annual Wine Cheese & Bread Faire, from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday and Sunday, Aug. 3-4. "This is the ultimate gourmet wine and food shopping experience in the Sacramento region," said Old Sugar Mill spokeswoman Mary Tye in a press release. "Cheesemakers from local producers and local bakers will showcase the region’s best cheese and bread pairings for area wines."

Visitors to the Faire can taste and purchase specialty chocolates, olive oils, nuts, coffee & teas, spices, and other locally made products, Tye said. "Shop for your perfect picnic lunch and bottle of wine, and then enjoy the beautiful outdoor patio and delta breeze to the sounds of great local live music.

New this year there will be a Grilled Cheese Competition, she said. "Local restaurants will be competing. ... Don't miss this opportunity to indulge on delicious creations by our region's chefs."

Tickets (purchase through the website) are $20 in advance and $25 at the door each day and include a commemorative wine glass, a thermo tote bag for cheese and food item purchases. Wine from 10 wineries will be available for tasting and you can attend live interactive cheese education seminars and hands on cheese making classes (advance registration required).

The Old Sugar Mill can accommodate limos and buses, said Tye. "Guests looking to stay the weekend will receive special rates at the Westin Hotel (only 10 minutes north of the Old Sugar Mill). Just ask for the Old Sugar Mill rate when booking rooms," she said.
