Wine & Food Pairing Weekends

Wine and Food Banner

All 11 wineries of the Shawnee Hills Wine Trail have paired up to create three wonderful weekends of savory wine and food pairings.  We invite you to join us for a progressive tasting along the trail and enhance your appreciation and enjoyment of our wines paired with delicious samples. 

NEXT EVENT:  Midsummer Picnic Pairings - August 5-6, 2017

Join us for a Midsummer Celebration and enjoy delightful picnic style pairings with your favorite Shawnee Hills Wine Trail wines.  With summer in full force, a relaxing outdoor picnic is just what the doctor ordered.  Grab a few friends and enjoy fresh, local foods of the season with award-winning reds, whites and rose`s from your favorite wineries.

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, August 5, 2017 (11:00am-5:00pm) and Sunday, August 6, 2017 (12:30pm-5:00pm)    Event Ticket Covers Both Days
