Tahoe Restauraunt Executive Chef, Peter Brinckerhoff, recieves Chef of the Year for the 4th year in a row at Sample the Sierra
"All the food and alcohol was provided by Gar Woods which made things really easy. Gar Woods printed out a menu that went on each of the guests’ place settings. Then the waiters and waitresses served all the tables like they were eating in a restaurant – taking everyone’s order off the set menu and creating each dish according to our guests’ requests. I never had to turn in a list to Gar Woods of how many chicken meals, salmon meals, steak meals etc. we wanted order. It was nice not to worry about that."

Tequila Clase Azul Reposado
Clase Azul is an ultra premium, 100% Weber Blue Agave, Reposado Tequila. Clase Azul tequila is the perfect marriage between the finest Tequila and a beautiful handcrafted, hand-painted Talavera carafe.
It is produced and bottled in the Jesus Maria region of Arandas, Jalisco, MX from 100% Tequilana Weber Agave. Clase Azul is aged for a minimum of eight months in small oak barrels. We are using a blend of Bourbon, Cognac, and Sherry casks in the aging process. This aging period and the use of these different barrels differentiates Clase Azul and gives it an award winning taste profile. It has distinct, smooth flavors and aromas, as well as an excellent balance over the palate.
The bottle style is called "Talavera", which was introduced to Mexico by Spanish artisans of the Colonial period. Known as "majolica" in Spain.
To try Clase Azul for yourself, come to one of the Tequila Tastings at Gar Woods, Riva Grill, Caliente, or Bar of America.
