Wine, Cheese and Bread Faire – and a Giveaway!


If you’re anything like me, “Wine, cheese and bread” is your answer to the age-old question “What three things would you take to a deserted island?” So when I heard about the Old Sugar Mill’s upcoming Wine, Cheese & Bread Faire, I knew we would be a match made in heaven!

Think about it: nine wineries, live music, local chef demos, cheese-making classes, specialty chocolate and picnicking – what better way to spend a Saturday? If you’ve never been to the Old Sugar Mill, it’s right in our backyard in Clarksburg, just a 20-minute drive from downtown Sacramento.

The event takes place Saturday and Sunday, July 21 and 22, from 11 a.m. – 5 p.m. both days. Tickets are for sale online here for $25, which includes a commemorative wine glass, a thermo tote bag for cheese and two complimentary wine tastes.

But, thanks to the nice people at the Old Sugar Mill, we also have a pair of tickets to give away right here on SacFoodies! Want to win? Simply leave us a comment, here or on our Facebook page, and tell us what three items would YOU take to a deserted island? We will select a winner on Friday, July 13th.

    3 things on a deserted island.

    To a deserted island I would take:
    1. A blanket
    2. Wine
    3. A fishing net

    I get cold, wine makes me happy, and I am not talented at catching my own food. Could be fun.

    1) A volleyball
    2) Gallons of sunscreen
    3) solar powered oven

    1.) My dog
    2.) Endless supply of wine
    3.) A boat – So when I was done relaxing with my dog and some good wine I could come back home.

    bug zapper, beach chair, a really good book

    OK, you didn’t say if you meant food items so I will just go with any items.
    1) KNIFE
    2) DE-SALINATOR (to make drinking water)
    3) HUGE BAG OF FOOD (like granola bars/dry fruit)

  • Leslie | Jul 6, 2012 at 5:26 pm

    Well you didn’t say I was stranded, so I would say…

    1) a device with Skype on it so I could talk to my kiddos back home…I need this vacation to be without them 😉
    2) depending on how long I was going to be there, a case of wine, or two, or five…
    3) a blow up lounger so I could relax in the water.

  • Tina M | Jul 6, 2012 at 8:28 pm

    1) largest bottle of wine I could carry!
    2) cheese that pairs well with coconut!
    3) the Professor from Gilligans Island… Since he can invent anything else I need! 🙂

    When do we leave?!?

  • Rosanna Magnisi | Jul 7, 2012 at 10:36 am

    Let’s see… First of all… I’d take a big strong hunky man to help me survive and of course to kill all sorts of time doing all sorts of stuff. Then I’d bring lots of food and wine, including rib eye steaks, scampi, lobster. Last but not least… I’d bring a huge fully stocked sail boat that will be parked around the corner, not to be divulged until I had my fill of the heavenly blisssssssss…..

  • Helen | Jul 7, 2012 at 5:37 pm
