Who doesn't like live cooking demonstrations, shopping with a glass of wine or enjoying an outing at a local favorite with friends?

The 2012 Lodi Spring Wine Show is being held today and Saturday at the Lodi Grape Festival Grounds.

In addition to being able to taste wine from more than 40 wineries, there are local restaurants and caterers providing treats to sample, vendors who sell everything from jewelry to wine barrel furniture, a cigar and port patio featuring great cigars from Stogies of Lodi and a variety of port wine.

The event, which is sponsored by KJOY radio, will also feature cooking demonstrations by Ruben Larrazolo of Alebrijes Mexican Bistro.

Local olive oil companies will have oil to taste and buy; there will be grape harvesting and growing equipment on display; and there will also be the new LoCA Lounge created by the Lodi Winegrape Commission.

Also, the Ultimate Wine Basket raffle is back.

The raffle prize includes more than 100 bottles of wine and other items donated by the Lodi Grape Festival Board of Directors and participating wineries.

Tickets for the raffle are $20 each and all the proceeds benefit the Lodi Grape Festival Bucks-for-Books scholarship program.
