  • The 25th annual A Taste of Ashland brings art lovers, foodies and wine enthusiasts together for a tour through the best art, food and wine the Rogue Valley has to offer.
    The event — the signature fundraising event for the Ashland Gallery Association — pairs small bites from 23 restaurants with wine from 17 regional wineries at 17 galleries in downtown Ashland.
    "A Taste of Ashland is the ultimate Ashland experience," says Jeff Jones, the event's coordinator. "Tasters stroll leisurely through the quaint town of Ashland all afternoon, experiencing the best of Ashland art, food and wine."
    The event is from noon to 4 p.m. Saturday and Sunday, April 26-27. Tickets cost $50 for Saturday, $40 for Sunday or $60 for both days and are available at Illahe Studios & Gallery, 215 Fourth St., Ashland Art Center, 357 E. Main St., online at www.atasteofashland.com or by calling 541-292-2302. Tickets can also be purchased from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday and Sunday at the Ashland Plaza kiosk. Ticket holders can pick up their commemorative wine glass, food and beverage guide and tour map at that time.
    While the galleries are numbered on the map, tasters are able to start at any gallery and complete the tour in any order they wish. Most galleries are within walking distance from each other; however, some tasters may wish to take advantage of a free shuttle offered by AllAboard Trolley, especially after a few bites of food and glasses of wine.
    While the tour will host returning restaurants, the event also welcomes many newcomers.
    The newly opened Granite Tap House is paired with EdenVale winery at Enoteca.
    The forthcoming Harvey's Place will make its debut at A Taste of Ashland — paired with Weisinger's Winery at Nimbus — before the restaurant opens in May. Jones says Harvey's will offer steak and seafood with a Southern Oregon flair.
    Other new restaurants on the tour are Julek's Polish Kitchen, Mix Sweet Shop and Green Springs Inn.
    New wineries on the tour include Fly High Vineyard, L. Donovan Wines and Platt Anderson Cellars (which is Ashland's only urban winery).
    A stand-out pairing for Jones will occur Sunday, when Apple Bandit Hard Cider mixes with Agave at Gathering Glass Studio.
    "They make a great cider, and it will be an interesting pairing with the Mexican food from Agave," Jones says.
    Tasters can vote for their favorite restaurant, winery and gallery for the Taster's Choice Award and be entered to win two weekend passes to A Taste of Ashland 2015.
