Shawnee Hills Wine Trail – Wine & Food Pairing Weekend: Autumn Inspirations
November 3, 2018 @ 11:00 am - November 4, 2018 @ 5:00 pm$35.00
A great wine and food pairing is one of life’s most pleasurable things and who knows what pairs best with their wines any better than the wineries themselves?
Celebrate the bountiful fall harvest with seasonally inspired dishes during a progressive tasting along the Shawnee Hills Wine Trail. Our member wineries have created savory autumn inspired dishes and paired them with their award-winning wines to enhance the flavors of both the wine and the food. This is a fun way to showcase how wine plays the perfect supporting role to our everyday meals.
How It Works: Pre-purchase your ticket online and select your starting point. The first winery that you visit will give you a souvenir wine glass and your tasting ticket. Bring your ticket to each location along the trail to enjoy your pairings. Leave your completed/stamped tasting ticket at the last winery visited to be entered for a chance to win a great prize from one of our associate members.
Event Hours: Saturday, November 3, 2018 (11:00am-5:00pm) and Sunday,November 4, 2018 (12:30pm-5:00pm)
