OLYMPIC VALLEY, Calif. and#8212; Visitors and locals alike will gather to toast the end of the summer season during the 22nd Annual Alpen Wine Festival at The Village at Squaw Valley USA Sunday, Sept. 5. Wine aficionados will sip fine vintages while taking in the spectacular mountain scenery and listening to live music, all to help raise money for Can Do Multiple Sclerosis.

The Village at Squaw teams up with Uncorked Wine Bar to host an event where the aroma of the wines is accompanied by the perfume of the pines. For a $40 donation to Can Do Multiple Sclerosis, guests will sip vintages served in a crystal souvenir wine glass 2 – 5 p.m. Event attendees can enjoy a variety of flavors from more than 40 wineries such as Napa Valley winemaking pioneers Venge Vineyards, Canihan Family Cellars, known for their award-winning Pinot Noir, Syrah and Cabernet Franc crafted on their certified organic estate vineyards in the heart of the Sonoma Valley and Flowers, which grows and produces cool-climate wines that authentically express the unique character of the coolest areas of the rugged Sonoma Coast. The Alpen Wine Festival also will feature wines from Hall, Three Families, Vinum Cellars, Pine Ridge, Dierberg, Twisted Rivers, Merriam Winery, Praxis Cellars and many more. Tickets will be available starting at 1 p.m. Sunday in The Village. The majority of wines served at the event also can be purchased at Uncorked.

Guests can appreciate live entertainment by the After Eights and acoustic guitarist Ian Ethan Case throughout the day.

The Alpen Wine Festival also will feature a silent auction room and raffle, which will help provide additional support for Can Do Multiple Sclerosis, formerly known as The Heuga Center. Festival attendees can bid on more than 50 items, including artwork, dinners at restaurants, magnums signed by winemakers, mixed cases of wine and more.

Can Do MS, formerly The Heuga Center for Multiple Sclerosis, is an innovative provider of lifestyle empowerment programs for people with MS and their support partners. A national nonprofit organization, they empower people to move beyond their MS by giving them the knowledge, skills, tools and confidence to adopt healthy lifestyle behaviors, actively co-manage their disease and live their best lives.
