Kathleen Hill: County Fair youth, cornhole tourny and more

Carneros wine tasting and Cornhole tournament

The Carneros Wine Alliance will host its first Wine Tasting & Cornhole Tournament on Saturday, Aug. 12 at Liana Estates in Napa. Sonoma’s Schug and Hyde wineries will participate along with Bouchaine, Cuvaison, Etude and Truchard Vineyards.

The late afternoon wine tasting will be followed by the Cornhole Tournament. What is it? It’s an old game where participants toss bags of corn or beans through holes in boards – which is over simplifying it. All proceeds will be donated to the Schell-Vista and Carneros fire department. $40. 4 to 6 p.m. 2750 Las Amigas, Napa. Tickets at Carneros.com/events.

Carneros Wine Alliance
The Carneros Wine Alliance is a non-profit association of wineries and grape-growers in the Carneros American Viticultural Area (AVA).  Carneros is the only appellation located at the crossroads of two major wine regions, the Napa and Sonoma Valleys.  Influenced by the maritime breezes and fog from its southern border with the San Pablo Bay, Carneros produces the region’s finest Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and sparkling wines. The Carneros Wine Alliance is committed to promoting the distinction, diversity and above all, quality, of the grapes and wines from Carneros.
