Wine on the Mountain is Nigh

by theelvee_w2oe3m

Coming up this weekend is one of the best LV Wine Trail events of the year.  The Wine on the Mountain event takes place up at Penn’s Peak, so it’s a bit of a drive from the valley, but it’s well worth it.  If you pick up tickets in advance they’re $14 or $16 a the door. With this you get admission, unlimited tastes, and a really nice glass.  We’ve hit up this event twice and enjoyed it each time. 

The wineries let you, in general, try 5 or so of their wines.  Some are more generous than others.  If you get there early on (the event goes 12p-5p) be prepared for a big crowd.  Towards the end when everyone is getting drunker and slower the crowds thin out and you can relax and mosey around a bit more.  Be sure to bring extra cash for the vendors who are hawking some decently tasty olive oils and vinaigrettes, among other wine-related crafts. 

One of the best things about this event isn’t the event itself, it’s the place it’s held.  After you purchase a bottle of your favorite from the day you can head out onto the deck of Penn’s Peak and enjoy the awesome scenery.  You get a huge panoramic view up there and if it’s going to be a nice day out, there’s few things better than sitting back with a few friends and emptying a bottle while enjoying the vista.
