Saturday & Sunday, June 4 – 5, 2016, 10 a.m. – 5 p.m.
Enjoy a long weekend of romance and adventure on the Great River Road Wine Trail! This special event presents ample opportunities to sample fine food and wine, from Wisconsin, Minnesota, and Iowa. Each winery on the Great River Road Wine Trail will feature their award winning wines and ciders paired with an array of local foods designed with gourmet flair. In addition to local foods, some wineries will also feature live music by local talent.
Advance tickets for the event are $25 per person. Each ticket holder will receive a wine trail glass and a six-bottle wine tote at the first winery visited. Their ticket and wine glass will entitle the holder to free wine and food tasting at each winery. You can pay for your ticket at the winery or online, using PayPal. Online purchasers should bring their PayPal receipt to the first winery visited. Plan to enjoy the event for the entire weekend, and visit all 12 wineries! Start as far away as you can, and work your way home! The Winona and La Crosse area is fairly centrally located on the trail and home of may fine B&B’s, guest houses, and motels. Book early, these options fill up during weekend events.
Please have a designated driver (sorry no wine tasting, but a lot of great local food). Designated driver tickets are $10 per person and include wine glass and bottle tote. Online ticket sales end at noon Wednesday June 1, so buy now.
