“Great food and wine, interesting seminars, beautiful location.” -attendee from Vine to Wine 2016

An elegant weekend away with your significant other, fellow wine-lovers, or on your own! This fun and educational event will feature good food, great wine, and the tranquil setting of Allerton Park. Spend the afternoon learning about grape production, pairing wine with food, and Winemaking 101. (For speaker information, click here.) Then, enjoy hors d’Oeuvres as you chat with fellow attendees and guest speakers. A specially prepared dinner by guest Chef Elizabeth Partenheimer will feature wine pairings from Churton Vineyard. After-dinner mingling will continue in the solarium, until you retire to your room in the Mansion or a guest house*. A continental breakfast will be served the next morning, followed by a Mansion tour at 11am. For a detailed schedule, click here.
