This spring the Columbia College Foundation will host the 40th Annual Columbia Wine Tasting – a benefit event from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday, April 9 to support the Columbia College Hospitality Management Program. This is the first year the Columbia Wine Tasting will be featured on a Saturday.
Guests will savor tempting hors d’oeuvres prepared by students of the Columbia College hospitality management program, enjoy guest food vendors, and sample premium wines from more than 70 wineries, including vintners from Napa, Sonoma, Lodi, Paso Robles, along with a number of local Sierra Foothill producers.
“The Columbia Wine Tasting is a premier wine and food tasting event in the beautiful Sierra Nevada foothills, celebrating 40 years on April 9,” said Gene Womble, Columbia College Hospitality Management Program Coordinator. “The event provides additional funding for the hospitality management program in the way of grants for students, equipment for the program, and special events. Please join us for a special day in the historic gold rush town of Columbia as we celebrate the 40th Anniversary of the Columbia Wine Tasting.”
Reservations can be purchased online for $55 per person in advance or $60 per person at the event as available. Attendees receive a complimentary souvenir wine glass and wine tastings from participating wineries and food vendors.
