Thanksgiving is right around the corner, and like many Americans you may have your menu already dialed. A season of giving, a time for family and friends to gather with gratitude, and a time when the food and wine pairings could be endless!

How about killing three birds with one stone at Uncorked‘s Thanksgiving Wine Tasting, where you can stock up on reds and whites, purchase farm-fresh produce for your holiday feast, and give to a local organization, Tahoe Food Hub, through your purchases.

Tahoe Food Hub is a non-profit organization building a regional food system in North Lake Tahoe by taking advantage of its close proximity to year-round food production. A great way to support local, sustainable foods!

Come on down, sip something uncorked, and select your produce!
