The biggest wine and food event in the north foothills, the North Yuba Harvest Festival,
will be a two-day event for the first time this year. It´s scheduled for Saturday and Sunday,
September 29 and 30. The festival was expanded to accommodate the growing number of vendors
wanting to participate, and it also reflects the ever-increasing interest in local food and wine.
This will be the 7th annual celebration of the gold-medal wines and olive oils that are produced by the unique climate and soils of our local foothills. North Yuba has received international recognition as a premium wine and olive oil region with local producers garnering coveted medals at major state, national and international competitions.
The Festival draws many out-of-town visitors each year, many of whom want to sample the new vintages and extra virgin oils, and to take home their selections of the "best of the best." Others come for the whole range of attractions, with over 60 vendors anticipated this year, including food stalls offering everything from haute cuisine to hot dogs, arts & crafts, antiques, Farmers Market, coffee bistro, children´s activities and live musical entertainment. Ample children´s activities guarantee a day of family fun.
"North Yuba Grown" is a newly minted "brand" for products from the foothills areas of Yuba County,
which is emerging as a "foodie" destination for visitors from Sacramento and beyond.
See: www.northyubagrown.org for related events.
So, why are North Yuba products so good?
Wine grapes and olive trees have been grown in North Yuba since the 19th century, and some olive trees are over 100 years old. North Yuba has its own recognized AVA (American Viticultural Area) and it is also within the much larger "Sierra Foothills" AVA. With altitudes around 1500 to 2000 feet, the region´s warm days and cool nights produce quality grapes with high acidity and concentrated flavors and aromas. The rocky soils force the vines to dig deep for water and nutrients, resulting in small yields but intense flavors.
Several North Yuba wineries will be pouring samples at this year´s Festival: Lucero Vineyards & Winery, Renaissance Vineyard & Winery, Grant-Eddie Winery, as well as Cante Ao Vinho from Wheatland area of Yuba County. Local olive oil producers offering samples for tasting will be Apollo Olive Oil, Calolea Olive Oil, and Sierra d´Oro, among others.
