TONIGHT: Wines of the World at the Murphys Historic Hotel


Wines of the World at the Murphys Historic Hotel

Calaveras Winegrape Alliance’s monthly “Wines of the World” will make its way to Murphys Historic Hotel tonight as hotel owner Dorian Fought presents a brilliant selection of award-winning wines to seduce the taste buds of wine lovers and celebrate Calaveras County’s incredibly impressive showing at the 2011 California State Fair Wine Judging. Calaveras County took home 21 medals this year and 12 of those will be on hand at tonight’s event.

While the event is open to the public and reservations are not required, expect a full house! Cost is $15 for CWA members and $25 for non-members. Guests are welcomed to dine at the hotel afterward with a $5 discount on each entrée.
