Bread meets cheese meets wine at Old Sugar Mill fest

cheese.JPGThe historic Old Sugar Mill in Clarksburg houses 10 California winery tasting rooms, and is an ideal venue for special food- and wine-related events.

The next party there will be the Wine, Cheese & Bread Faire, 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Aug. 3-4. It's being billed as the "Ultimate Gourmet Wine & Food Shopping Experience" in our area, perhaps with good reason.

Cheesemakers and bakers will pair their specialties with local wines, while purveyors will sell gourmet goodies including chocolates and olive oils, nuts and spices, coffees and teas. All this while live music plays in the background.

The $20 per-day toll ($25 at the door) includes a commemorative wine glass, insulated tote bag and tastes at the 10 wineries. New this year is a grilled-cheese sandwich throwdown. Also, interactive seminars and cheesemaking classes (advanced registration required).

Old Sugar Mill is at 35265 Willow Ave., Clarksburg. For information, directions and to buy tickets: (916) 744-1615,
