Don’t miss your chance to enjoy the last days this year to explore the grounds of George Whittell’s Castle in the Sky at the Wine and Cheese Tours. Sip fine wines and savor a selection of artisan cheese and chef-prepared appetizers while learning about the unique history of the estate.

Docents will lead tours of the Lighthouse Room, the Old Lodge, the servants’ quarters and the 600-foot secret underground tunnel leading to the wooden speedboat “Thunderbird Yacht.”

Wine and Cheese Tours are at 2 p.m. on Tuesdays and Fridays through Oct. 19. Tickets are $100 per person; guests must be age 21 and older. | RSVP (800) 468-2463, thunderbirdtahoe.org
