VALLEY SPRINGS, Calif.– A first of its kind festival is set to celebrate the bounty of the Gold Country this August.Fine wines and gourmet foods not only go well together at the dinner table, they grow well together in the Sierra Nevada Foothills. Fertile soils, endless pastures, and a unique climate make this a world-class agricultural region.

The Calaveras Wine, Cheese & Olive Festival celebrates three of the area’s premier products. Dozens of local wineries, olive growers, and cheese makers are expected to participate. Catano Winery was the first to finalize their participation, and the list is growing quickly.

Guests will be treated to an evening of wine tasting, gourmet food, and live music. Doors open at 4:00 pm and festivities will continue until 8:00 pm. Attendees will have the opportunity to help choose the Gold Country’s best wine in a People’s Choice competition held in conjunction with the Calaveras Winegrape Alliance.

The event is open to adult age 21 and over. Tickets are available for the advance purchase price of $40.00. Interested parties can contact La Contenta at (209) 772-1082 for purchasing information. Tickets, if available, will be $45.00 at the door.

The event is sponsored by San Andreas Rotary. Proceeds will help support the newly-formed CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates) for foster youth in the county and other community programs. It is expected to be a highly successful fundraiser, garnering over 150 responses from potential guests within less than three weeks of being posted on Facebook.

More details, including updates to the list of participating wineries, olive growers, and cheesemakers, will be announced soon. For updates, check the latest news on the Calaveras Wine, Cheese & Olive Festival official website at
