Mark your calendar August 15 - 18, 2013 for this year's festival. Last year was great. This year is even better, and the headliners keep growing. This year Chris Isaak headlines on Saturday Night along with Brandi Carlile, Lisa Loeb starting at 6:00 PM. But the festivities actually start on Thursday, so you'll want to arrive early to get in on the dinners with the matched wines.
The first event of the festival is Thursday evening with a Winemaker Dinner at the Top of the Sierra; this culinary event if unforgettable. You will take the gondola up to McCoy Station and dine at Parallax with a six course meal with wined pared from David Bruce Winery. If you can't get tickets for this one, as there is limited seating, a second event has been added. The "Tour de France". Our favorite Mammoth Chef, Chef Frederic Pierrel
formerly of the Lakefront Restaurant for 17 years will be hosting a 5 course dinner with French wines to match. Go Fred!! If you have loved his French fusion cuisine in the past you will love what he has planned. It takes place in the new Underground Lounge
in The Village. The dinners are at 6:30 PM and there is limited seating so if you're in, purchase your tickets immediately.
Friday evening the event moves to The Village for the Wine Walk presented by the Mammoth Mountain Community Foundation; This is the reason we all remember the festival in its early years being called "The Mammoth Wine Festival". It is a very nice event strolling and sampling wines. The band "Zoux" will play from 6:00 PM to 9:00 PM. It is a wonderful evening under the stars, relaxed and "classy." The box office opens at 5:00 PM. We suggest you're there early so you can beat the crowds!
Saturday is the big event. Starting at 12 noon there will be music, wine, and breathable mountain air at the mountain top setting at Canyon Lodge. There will be snacks or dine on sample plates from the regions' top restaurants. There will be an art expo from 12 - 6:00 PM, Music from 1-9:00 PM and the wine tasting from 1 - 5:00 PM. Food demonstrations at 2:00 PM and 4:00 PM plates paired with wine. At last count there were 20 vineyards set up to pour.
