You'll need to bring a bike to this year's Park City Food and Wine Classic.
Organizers of the annual event, which runs July 5-8, have cut down on the number of daytime educational wine classes — only three are planned. Instead they have added more "bike with a chef" excursions that showcase Park City's mountain terrain.
On Friday, July 6, there's the "Mud, Sweat and Cheers" ride with Zane Holmquist, the executive chef at Stein Erikson Lodge. An avid biker, Holmquist takes participants on a scenic ride along one Park City's single track trails. Afterwards, he prepares them lunch with wine in the mountains.
The "Single Track and Sinskey" ride on Saturday, July 7, is similar. On this ride participants can choose to take the expert-level trail on Bald Mountain or the intermediate-trail from Silver Lake. Everyone ends up at the St. Regis Waterfall for lunch with mountain bike enthusiast and Executive Chef, Chip McMullin. Wines from Sinskey Vineyards will be served.
The four-day event ends Sunday, July 8, with the "Tour de Park City" ride. Guests take a 25-mile scenic road bike ride through the Park City and Deer Valley with bike enthusiast and Executive Chef James Dumas of High West Distillery. After the ride, patrons will enjoy lunch — and cocktails — at the distillery.
All three rides begin at 10 a.m. and cost $95.
The three "grand tasting" events continue as usual.
