NEVADA CITY, CA - Become a winemaker for the day and bottle your own
wines, Saturday, November 17, from noon to 5pm at the Nevada City
Winery in historic downtown Nevada City. Winemaker Mark Foster has
produced two special barrels of wine uniquely for this event. Amid the
usual rows of barrels in the wine cellar, Foster has set up an entire
bottling process in miniature. First barrel taste the wines. Then
fill, cork, foil, and finally sign your label before putting it on the
bottle. The Winery will have all the necessary supplies available.
Enjoy live music and your choice of three delicious soups for a
toasty, hot lunch. $10 per person includes wine tasting at the Tasting
Bar, soup buffet and entry to Barrel Room.
Artist Carolyn Voss’s original piece of art was selected to be this
year’s label for the specialty wines, a Zinfandel and Syrah, for the
Bottle Your Own Party. Voss a local artist, filmmaker and designer,
says she drew inspiration from the rise of steampunk, a sub-genre of
science fiction that is influenced by, and often adopts the style of
19th-century Victorian culture for the image of the wine barrel racer.
Both classic and fun, the art is also a nod to the Bacchus Bombers,
Nevada City Winery’s own art car and team in the annual Nevada City
Soapbox Derby. Much to our delight, Voss, who spends most of her time
out of the country on film shoots for National Geographic, History
Channel and PBS, will be in attendance at the Bottle Your Own Party.
As a special bonus, engraving artist Clint Appelt will be on hand to
personalize any of your wine selections on site with his exquisite
hand engraving. Clint was born and raised in Los Angeles and then
relocated to Reno. He discovered his love of horses working as
Ferrier. Inspired by southwestern art and history, Clint began his art
career. His mediums are acrylics, hand-carving and etching, gourd and
rope basket art. An engraving artist, Clint enjoys the old-school
style of hand engraving, a remarkable three dimensional
process – and perfect for wine bottles!
Bring your friends and family. These bottles of wine make perfect holiday gifts!
