When it comes to regionally made beer and wine, the Inland Northwest is certainly the land of plenty; this weekend’s 6th annual Coeur d’Alene Wine Extravaganza is clear evidence. Regional wineries from near and far offer tastings during a Friday evening lake cruise (6 pm; $50) with food pairings, and Saturday’s walk-around tasting at Resort Plaza Shops (3-7 pm, $15) showcases almost 20 wineries, with 65 varieties to choose from. Beverly’s also hosts a special wine-pairing dinner, featuring selections from Napa Valley’s Duckhorn Winery (April 21 and 22, 6 pm; reservations required), and Sunday brunch at the Resort (9 am-2 pm) includes sparkling wines from Treveri Cellars. If you plan to make a weekend of it, the Resort offers special event accommodation packages.
