Sunriver Resort Hosts Annual “Showcase Event” to benefit Newberry Habitat for Humanity
On August 2nd, Sunriver Resort opened its Heritage room for the annual Wine and Cheese tasting event that followed the previous days Golf Tournament to benefit the Newberry Habitat for Humanity affiliate in Sunriver/La Pine.
On Saturday following the golf tournament, the Heritage room at Sunriver Resort was turned into a winetasting tour of the world, complete with a booklet that described the wine selections that were being poured, the regions they came from and there was even an additional area for beer and spirits- new additions this year! Participants could jot down notes about the wines they enjoyed and make plans for future purchases.
That evening they also announced the winners of the golf tournament and handed out prizes, snapped a few pictures and made many of the golfers who participated look forward to next year!
Once in the room, attendees could go from table to table featuring one state to another- or one country to another to do their tasting. Each table was well staffed with expertise and good service. There was a variety of well- chosen appetizers, cheeses and small dessert bites to complete any participant’s need for a delicious repast. Live entertainers played softly and filled the room -that was deliberately lit to put a golden glow over the proceedings- with music.
Said one guest, “It was a pleasant way to learn about many wines from all over the world and it was lots of fun!”
