by

What goes better together than wine, cheese and bread? We can’t think of anything! That’s why we are excited to announce that the Wine, Cheese and Bread Faire 2013 at the Old Sugar Mill is back.

Saturday, August 3 and Sunday, August 4 from 11 to 5 pm, you can enjoy local cheese, bread and wine from 10 different wineries and shop for specialty chocolates, olive oils, nuts, coffees, teas, spices and other local products. 

Visitors can also enjoy a picnic lunch with wine on the gorgeous outdoor patio while taking in live music and the delta breeze after wine tasting and shopping. You can also attend live, interactive cheese education discussions and participate in cheese making classes with advanced registration.

This year, the Faire is even more exciting with the Grilled Cheese Competition! Watch chefs from local restaurants compete as they craft their version of the best grilled cheese in the region and then purchase your favorite for lunch.

Tickets this year are $20 in advance, $25 at door and include a commemorative wine glass, thermo tote bag for cheese and complimentary tastings at ten different wineries during the day. Luckily for SacFoodies fans, we are giving away two tickets to this special event! To enter for your chance to win, comment below and tell us which type of wine you’d pair with a grilled cheese: white or red?

    I’d pair a light Sav Blanc with a grilled cheese comprised of brie, sliced apples and procuitto

    What wine would be paired with grilled cheese sand.
    I would say white.


  • Debbie DeArmon | Jul 22, 2013 at 1:12 pm

    I would say white wine


  • Phaelen | Jul 22, 2013 at 1:18 pm

    Depends on the type of cheese in the grilled cheese I guess. Overall though I would have to say red.


  • Greg McClintock | Jul 22, 2013 at 1:20 pm

    I would pair it with a red wine. And even though I have nevered paired a grilled cheese with a wine… I am thinking a Pinot noir or a Syrah depending on the cheese.


  • Rachel Hallgren | Jul 22, 2013 at 1:21 pm

    Grilled cheese would go perfect with a nice, peppery Zinfandel. YUM!


  • Dawniell Black | Jul 22, 2013 at 1:22 pm

    Depending on the type of cheese, but I prefer white so I would go with a sweeter white perhaps a Riesling.


  • Tabitha | Jul 22, 2013 at 1:49 pm

    What a fun event! I’d likely pair a grilled cheese sanwhich with an icey cold white wine.


  • Steffany Caria | Jul 22, 2013 at 3:11 pm

    White!


  • Amanda Holliday | Jul 22, 2013 at 3:27 pm

    Red because red goes with everything inmy book. :)


  • Wendy | Jul 22, 2013 at 3:41 pm

    White! :)


  • m wong | Jul 22, 2013 at 4:12 pm

    red


  • Lacey Leaf | Jul 22, 2013 at 4:21 pm

    I would pair a good red wine with a grilled cheese… sounds yummy! I may have to make that for dinner!


  • Jessica Esperanza | Jul 22, 2013 at 6:18 pm

    I tend to almost always go for white wine this time of year. The heat makes it hard to think about anything else. Look forward to tasting both red and white wines at the fair though!


  • Cynthia Redford | Jul 22, 2013 at 8:17 pm

    Red ……. Because I love red wine!


  • Megan | Jul 22, 2013 at 10:10 pm

    Red! I always like a strong red for warm gooey melty cheese.


  • Pam | Jul 23, 2013 at 10:29 am

    Either one would work for us! White with a pretty basic sandwich, red with melted brie, artisan bread and dried cherries, yum!


  • Ivy Glasgow | Jul 23, 2013 at 12:53 pm

    Tough question, because it could depend on the bread, cheese, and other additions (bacon?) being used. But blind, I’d go for white. Something flexible, multi-purpose like Chardonnay.


  • Chris | Jul 23, 2013 at 6:15 pm

    Red wine, of course!


  • Helen | Jul 23, 2013 at 6:53 pm

    White! :)


  • Amanda | Jul 23, 2013 at 6:54 pm

    Red for sure. Red goes with everything!


  • Debby Hecathorn | Jul 23, 2013 at 7:22 pm

    I prefer white! Yum


  • Pat | Jul 26, 2013 at 7:25 am

    Red, for the “heart healthy” benefits.


  • Vicky Whitney | Jul 27, 2013 at 8:34 am

    Depends on the cheese. Probably a red, but that is mostly because I tend to prefer reds. Probably a syrah.


  • Linda Montenegro | Jul 27, 2013 at 11:38 am

    It would depend on the cheese as well as the bread.


  • Patrick Mishler | Jul 31, 2013 at 10:28 am

    Depending on the cheese and the bread obviously, but I would most likely go with a red due to personal preference. Perhaps a Cabernet Sauvignon, or a Pinot Noir.


  • julie | Aug 2, 2013 at 9:18 am

    Well the grilled cheese should be as simple as what wine you should drink. I’d go with an gooey mild cheeder cheese sandwich lightly toasted with yummy butter…and the wine. ANY wine will do. When does wine not taste wonderful. Pick your favorite that day and go with it. Wine and food should be fun and adventurous. Get your friends together and make a few grilled cheese sandies and a couple bottles of different wine and talk about them. Its your own food and wine faire in your backyard. Enjoy and cheers!
