8th Annual Wine n Ice Competition-dedicated to Chris Banovich
Wednesday March 7th, 2018
Truckee River Winery Tasting Room
11467 Brockway Rd Truckee CA 96161
Truckee River Winery is hosting its 8th Annual Ice Carving Competition for SnowFest!, Tahoe’s premiere snow festival, and we would like you to participate! This year’s Wine n Ice event will be dedicated to Chris Banovich, 5 time winner and founding collaborator of our Ice Carving Competition.
Truckee River Winery’s 2018 Wine n’ Ice benefits the Truckee River Watershed Council, a local nonprofit dedicated to maintaining and restoring our watershed.
“The Truckee River region is threatened. Fish: declining. Invertebrates: dwindling. Meadows: drying up. Human impact from mining, grazing, logging, population growth – and now extreme weather events – contributes to the river’s “polluted” EPA rating. The watershed needs our help. We exist to transform its health and resiliency – so nature and humanity can thrive together."
Competitors will be given the chance to sculpt 300lb blocks of ice into gorgeous, alluring and awe inspiring sculptures. Truckee River Winery would like to offer 10 people the chance to participate in this contest. The top 3 contestants will win an assortment of amazing prizes, the winner will receive a trophy, prizes and a vertical of wine!
Registration is $50.00 this year and proceeds will go to the Banovich Memorial Fund! The main attraction will be the competitors, but guests will also be encouraged to enjoy a glass of wine, special treats from various local eateries, local DJ and many fun outdoor winter games.
We hope you will help us make this event spectacular and bring SnowFest! guests to Truckee!
