Nibble & Sip at A Taste of Ashland, 4/25-4/26
For locals and visitors alike, A Taste of Ashland is a not-to-be-missed springtime event. This year the food, wine and gallery tour spans Saturday and Sunday, April 25th and 26th from noon to 4p.m. As usual, Standing Stone will join the fun with food samples to pair with local wines. You’ll find us at Hanson Howard Gallery, just next door at 89 Oak St.
A Taste of Ashland is the Ashland Gallery Association’s signature fund-raising event. This annual walking tour of Ashland galleries pairs local restaurants and regional wineries to create a weekend-long pairing experience. Foodies and wine lovers can follow a map to 17 galleries around town, and hop a shuttle if the four-hours-a-day tour calls for a little rest.
This year, we’re thrilled to be paired once again with Simple Machine Wine. Tasters can expect unique wines crafted from Rogue Valley vineyards by winemaker Brian Denner. Check out their history and varietals on Simple Machine’s website.
As for our food, we’re not going to let that cat out of the bag just yet. There’s tasting to be done, recipes to perfect, ingredients to procure…but we do vow to bring along appetizing food samples from our kitchen right next door. In the past, our wood-fired pizzas, lamb meatballs, and artichoke fondue have all gone over great, and we promise to make this year no exception.
Tickets are available at atasteofashland.com for weekend-long or single-day passes. Wine glass and tour map included, and then you make your own fun! If you need a break during or after your tour, stop by Standing Stone downtown for a pint, meal, and resting place at 101 Oak St. Trust us, we won’t scoff if you kick up your legs and relax – gallery hopping with food and wine is hard work!
