In March 2018, the Vermont Fresh Network coordinated the first ever Vermont Wine Week. This year, they're planning something a little different-- a Fall Wine Dinner Series. A couple events have already taken place, but there are several coming up in late October and early November. Stay tuned for more details and be sure to put these on your calendar!
Saturday, October 19th: Snow Farm Vineyard and Chef Denise Boutin of My Kids Kitchen team up to offer a Harvest Wine Pairing Dinner in the indoor event space at the Vineyard in South Hero.

Please call 802-324-5563 to hold your spot. $74.95/person (includes five courses and wine pairings).
