Learn how to pair food and wine perfectly with Chef Todd Goldian and a Wine Chief Officer.
Bratwurst, BBQ & Mulled Wine Fall Festival: What a perfect time of year to enjoy apple cider, delicious food, music, art, mulled wine and much more at Ida Lee Park! Numerous local food vendors will be present and you’ll have a chance to get some early holiday shopping done at the participating arts and crafts vendors! Plenty of activities available for children too! If that doesn’t already sound GREAT- let’s make it a bit better. Part of the proceeds from ticket sales will be donated to “United for Puerto Rico” to help support those affected by Hurricane Irma and Maria. Have fun and know you are supporting a great cause!
Fermentation Tour at Hillsborough Vineyards: Have you ever wondered what goes on behind the scenes at a winery?! Exactly how much hard work goes into making each bottle of wine? Well, now is your chance to see for yourself! Karem Baki, Hillsborough’s winemaker, will guide you through the cellars and teach you what’s happening behind the scenes while the grapes “sleep” in the barrels and tanks. He’ll also walk you through the process of harvesting and pressing!
