Art Meets Wine in the High Desert
May 9 @ 5:30 am - May 14 @ 8:00 pmvaries
Art and Wine in the High Desert, an exciting fundraising event sponsored by the Sunriver Women’s Club, returns May 9 -14,2022. Tickets for the event are limited and are on sale now. Virtual wine pairing class and wine tastings must be purchased no later than April 28. Tickets for the live all-inclusive wine tasting and art expo, taking place on May 14 at SHARC in Sunriver, will be sold until the limit is reached. Concurrently, there is a virtual auction of art, wine, experiences, and more.
On Monday, May 9, the event kicks off with a virtual class about Unexpected Wine Pairings, sponsored by Bend’s Market of Choice.
Throughout the week of May 9 -13, there will be five virtual wine tastings to choose from, one each night: Maragas Winery (Central OR), Utopia Vineyard & Winery (Newberg, OR), Native Flora Winery (Dundee Hills), Domaine Roy et Fils (Dundee, OR), and Ken Wright Cellars (Carlton, OR). Wines are sent directly from the winery and a Zoom link connects attendees to the tasting.
New this year is a live wine and art expo on May 14 at the SHARC in Sunriver. Tastings are from carefully chosen wineries that represent different varieties of wine and growing regions: Abacela Winery, Anam Cara Cellars, Delfino Vineyards, Ken Wright Cellars, Lady Hill Vineyards, Lava Estate Winery, Left Coast Estate, Maragas Winery, Utopia Vineyard & Winery, and Willamette Valley Vineyards. A charcuterie item, a paella station, a dessert station, a glass of wine from a favorite winery and music by Wil Kinky are included in the ticket price.
And since art and wine pair well, artists from the Artists’ Gallery in Sunriver will be providing live demonstrations at the expo, creating an opportunity for a personal encounter with local artists who have created special pieces just for this event.
