Uncorked, the Tahoe wine bar located both in Tahoe City and at Squaw Valley, is a classy and relaxed way to spend an evening up at the lake or an apres ski afternoon. The owner of each of the Uncorked locations has been traveling throughout California for years to learn about the area's various wines and the people who make them. They specialize in small-production wineries that craft great wine at reasonable prices. Uncorked also carries wines from around the world as well as regional wines from Oregon and Washington.
Uncorked in Tahoe City has special wine tasting events on Saturday nights and Uncorked in Squaw Valley has events on Friday nights. Each event features a different wine or vintner, usually from California. Past events have included sparkling wine tasting, a Fiddlehead winemaker event, an Auteur winemaker event and a Plumpjack and Cade winemaker event. Each event includes a talk with the vintner or winemaker, samples of wine and appetizers such as artisan cheeses and bread or crackers. The events cost between $10-$20.
Uncorked Squaw Valley is tucked into Squaw Village and the decor is simple, early and relaxed. The Squaw Valley location also just recently celebrated their 5th anniversary. The wine is stacked on vertical racks so you can view the labels. Uncorked in Tahoe City is located at the Cobblestone Shopping Center and is clean, modern and laid back.
