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:  Autumn Inspirations - November 4-5, 2017

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 4, 2017 (11:00am-5:00pm) and Sunday, November 5, 2017 (12:30pm-5:00pm)    Event Ticket Covers Both Days
