One of Northern Nevada’s most celebrated events returns Sept. 26 with a new moniker, Barrels & Bites (formerly named Vintage Nevada). The ultimate festival of drinks and auction runs from 5 – 8 p.m. at the Tuscany Ballroom at the Peppermill Resort Spa Casino. The Boys & Girls Club of Truckee Meadows is the official benefactor of the 24th annual event where attendees enjoy hundreds of specialty wines, beers and spirits, alongside a large selection of hors d’oeuvres and desserts and partake in silent and live auctions. The event organized by Southern Wine and Spirits of Nevada raises funds for the Club, which serves more than 12,000 children annually in northern Nevada. Tickets are available online at www.BarrelsandBites.com for $50; $65 at the door.
“This event has evolved into the most amazing experience of fine wine, spirits and beer to be had in northern Nevada,” said Tony King, general manager, Southern Wine and Spirits of Nevada. “Each year we are excited to raise the bar on the event and additional funds for the Boys & Girls Club of Truckee Meadows.”
The 24th annual event features wines from around the world, specialty beers, ales, lagers and premium liquors from a variety of purveyors. Barrels & Bites also offers attendees festive hors d’oeuvres and elegant desserts from Reno’s finest casino restaurateurs and retail establishments as well as exciting auctions including culinary trips, VIP winery visits and other cultural experiences. In addition, all Barrels & Bites attendees receive free admission to Edge Nightclub following the event.
