Winters hosts Harvest Festival celebration

By From page A11 | October 23, 2013

Davis author Scott Evans will be at the Berryessa Gap tasting room, 15 Main St. in Winters, from 5 to 8 p.m. Friday to sign copies of his literary murder mysteries, “Tragic Flaws,” “First Folio” and “Sylvia’s Secret,” during the Winters Harvest Festival. The novels are set partly in Davis, Sacramento and the Bay Area, so residents will enjoy references to local landmarks.

Anderson Family Catering will be cooking up some delicious street food in front of Berryessa Gap.

Over at RootStock, 22 Main St., visual and performance artist Matthew Harrel will showcase his art between 5:30 and 8 p.m. Harrel is known as the “coffee artist.” He has created several paintings using liquid coffee made from a variety of coffee bean types to vary the brown-black tones. In September, Harrel participated in Winters’ celebration of tempranillo, and used the Spanish wine to create his art.

The Harvest Festival features local producers selling fresh produce, eggs, olive oil, honey and more. Artists and crafters will offer handmade candles, soaps, lotions, cards and other products for holiday gift-giving.

The Winters FFA will have pumpkins for sale in time for Halloween. Live music will be provided by Miss Lonely Hearts, local bluegrass and country favorites.
