Looking to class it up this weekend? Hard Rock Lake Tahoe has the event for you.
The hotel and casino is hosting a wine tasting Saturday featuring Robert Jordan Wines from Napa Valley.
Jordan planted his roots in the valley as a farmer, working in numerous vineyards, which is where, as he explained, his passion for wine started to grow.
“Eventually it grew into the dream of creating my own label. My brand would feature wines from the best vineyards I farm in Napa Valley,” Jordan wrote on his website.
“Growing wine grapes in Napa Valley is an art and science since every vineyard has unique soil, weather, growing and ownership conditions. Attentive farming protects the vines from the forces of nature. And when done exceptionally well, our careful cultivation produces excellent quality fruit. Thus, it only made sense that my new wine brand use grapes that were raised to meet my own high standards. … From grower to vintner, I made the big leap.”
The fruits of that leap will be available during Saturday’s tasting.
A ticket is good for a signed bottle of wine and heavy appetizers.
Now if you’re like us, you may spit our Franzia out when you see the $89 ticket cost. But this ain’t no Barefoot — Robert Jordan’s 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon is listed at $150.

In December 2019, my pre-pandemic trip to Anchorage, Alaska, didn’t include edible flowers and fresh herb salads. But if I lived there, I could have ordered online dried edible wildflowers.
