Holidays in the Hills


This weekend, take some time away from the holiday hustle to bustle and enjoy some wine, listen to music, receive discounts on purchases, enter to win some prizes (including a case of Placer County wines)—and help out the Marine Toys for Tots Foundation.

Holidays in the Hills, hosted by the Placer County Vintners Association and the Placer County Wine Trail members, takes place Dec. 8 and 9 from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tastings at participating wineries in Auburn, Lincoln, Loomis and Newcastle are free for the day if you bring a new, unwrapped toy to any participating winery (doesn’t matter where you start). Don’t have time to shop for a toy? Cash is always king, baby!
