You’ve spent a day on the slopes, maybe out early for first tracks at Sugar Bowl or Northstar, and it’s time to unwind and rest those legs! Though we agree the view at Donner Lake Village is hard to beat, why not add this fun/casual night out to your Tahoe getaway. Don’t slip into your pajamas just yet – head out for a casual apres ski at Squaw Valley.
Expand your wine palette and join Plumpjack Café for their Taste The World of Wine series held every Thursday through April. If you’re really committed and a die-hard wine fan, who plans to be in the area a lot this winter, you could go ‘around the world’ with all of the regions explored by Plumpjack Café: from the Rhone Valley to New Zealand to Greece to Portugal, and many more ‘stops’ along the way!
Each ‘wine voyage’ includes a taste flight of three wines and wine fact cards provided with the flights. The month of December features New World Bordeaux Varietals (Semillon, Merlot, Cab Franc, etc.). Here’s the lineup this month:
December 8: Washington State
December 15: Southern California
December 22: Sonoma, California
December 29: Plumpjack Family Wine
