Enjoy High Altitude Flavors at the Mammoth Lakes Food & Wine Experience, June 26 & 27

by Carrie Dow on Jun 15, 2015 in Event Listing

Enjoy fine wine and dining at altitude during the Mammoth Lakes Wine and Food Experience, June 26 and 27. This outdoor party in the Eastern Sierras will feature elegant cuisine and wines while raising money to support higher education and the arts in this mountain community.

In only its fifth year, the Mammoth Food and Wine Experience has blossomed into a fun and delicious weekend with wine walks, cooking battles, live music and exciting auctions. All proceeds go to the Mammoth Lakes Foundation, a community non­profit.

The fun starts Friday evening, June 26, with the Wine Walk in the Village at Mammoth from 5:30 to 7:30 PM. Guests will be able to stroll through the village while tasting over 50 different kinds of wine from 15 California wineries. Also happening will be a silent auction featuring a variety of goods and services, and guests can use their smartphones to keep up with the bidding on BiddingforGood.com. The Wine Walk is $45 in advance, $50 at the entrance and includes wine and a tasting glass.

Saturday, June 27, is the big event with the Grand Tasting from 5:30 to 8:30 PM at the Edison Pavilion next to the Cerro Coso Community College. There, guests will find 20 wineries pouring over 100 varieties of wine. Along with all that good vino will be some scrumptious food from several Mammoth restaurants. In fact, guests will be asked to vote for “Best Dish” of the festival.

Also part of the fun at the Grand Tasting will be a Celebrity Chef Battle with two teams of four chefs, one pair from Mammoth and another from Los Angeles, who will complete in a live contest. Chefs will be given a mystery basket of main ingredients along with a common pantry of staple items. Each team will have 25 minutes to create a spectacular dish to be judged by a panel of experts who will determine a winner based on taste, creativity and presentation. Guests can also participate in a live auction featuring a chance to bid on the fine wines they are sampling as well as sports equipment, vacations and spa experiences.

For this special 5th anniversary year, tickets will be only $99 in advance, in honor of the Founder of Mammoth Ski Resort and the Mammoth Lakes Foundation, Dave McCoy, who is 99 years old. Tickets will be $120 at the entrance. Tickets to both events can be purchased online.

Looking to join in the fun? Consider becoming a volunteer. The Foundation asks volunteers to serve a four hour shift between 8 AM to 8 PM on either day, and volunteers receive great benefits. Call 760-­934-­3781 or email Dion Agee at info@mammothlakesfoundation.org to sign up.

Visit the Mammoth Food & Wine Experience website for more information on tickets and volunteering.
